A ring of protection was a magical device that helped keep the one who wore it from physical harm. The ring could deflect a small part of most attacks.[4]

Creation[edit | edit source]

Rings of protection were old items, and the knowledge to create them was quite well-known. A shield of faith spell was needed in the creation, so they were made mostly by clerics.[4]

History[edit | edit source]

Even though the name of the original creator of the first rings of protection was unknown, the sages liked their origins to King Castter De'wess. Several of these rings were forged to protect the King's sons. The rings of protection remained within the De'wess family for at least 13 generations. The hostility between the creators of the rings and the King's heirs was the supposed reason for the rings of protection disappearance from the possession of the De'wess family.[1]
