A small realm or kingdom that exists within, and is protected from outside threats by, a large circle of stone obelisks called The Wards. Some of the Lighted Realms are of this type, one such example being the small kingdom of Ardwen. A Warded Realm tends to be a highly secluded region, almost completely insulated from the events, creatures, and perils of the outside world.
Monsters in a Warded RealmDespite their insulation from external threats and dangers, a Warded Realm may still host a fair number of native threats and dangers within its own borders. These include native monsters. However, by and large, the monsters that dwell within a Warded Realm are:
- Fewer in number than those outside the realm;
- Less powerful than those outside the realm;
- Less visible than those outside the realm, tending to occupy the more remote nooks and crannies of the realm, and for the most part coming out only at night.
