New GSW Class – Basic Warding

GSW Dean of Curriculum, Prof. Tau Peristera, is pleased to announce the creation of a new class in the Dark Arts Department. If you are interested in advanced defensive skills you will want to jump on this one as an Advanced Warding class is already in the works.


Wards are a type of protection that goes a step beyond shielding. These are permanent or semi-permanent constructs that are put around a place or object and then left – not needing to be constantly maintained. This class will teach the basics of setting up wards and techniques for psychic wards, sigil & talismans, charms, and warding spells.
