It’s been established that Freehold has Wards to ward off BSRs and other threats. If Freehold is any indication, the science behind every particular Ward is beyond common knowledge, but people seem to when a place is Warded.
Do any of the following have similar Wards? :
1. Midworld’s major cities?
1a. If not the former, at least the capitol buildings of Power Groups?
1b. If neither, at least the capitol buildings of Monarchical Power Groups?
This information is not truly known, nor is it readily available. The existence of BSRs are not even known to most common populaces and they are barely referenced in the Freehold library. The Brotherhood of the Sword and Cross are aware of their existence and are more aware of when a places is warded against BSRs or not.
It can be assumed that such wards do exist in other places and to protect important places. The strength of such Wards vary, depending on the expertise of said Kingdom in magic and the exact nature of the attack.
But, for the most part, these Wards are not known by most folk and the Kingdoms themselves are loathe to share their secrets with others, in case another Kingdom or entity can divine a way to bypass them. Most Kingdoms even have ways to silence non-library means of discovering their greatest secrets.
