Circle of Warding
Circles of warding, typically comprised of either nine or eleven
roughly-square stones, have been used for ages to protect people and places
from evil spirits and dark magic.
The stones that make up these arcane circles are usually engraved with
one or more symbols of warding that supposedly contain the magic that
serves to create the circle's aura of protection.
While powerful sorcerers are indeed capable of creating functioning
circles of warding, it's believed that most such circles have either never
been enchanted, or have long since lost any protective powers they once
Many remote towns and villages across the North Broadlands still employ
circles of warding.
