Jump to: navigation, search

Warding sigils are a type of spell work used to protect and hide from, or bind ones enemies. Sigils appear to range from Hermetic, astrological, alchemical, Kabbalistic and Enochian. If warding sigils are altered in any way, no matter how slight, they are rendered useless.
