Abjuration is a school of magic which deals in protective spells and the suppression of other's magic. Magic of this school creates physical or magical barriers, negates magical or physical abilities, harms trespassers, or even banishes the target of the spell to another plane of existence.[1] Wizards who specialize in this type of magic are known as abjurers.[2]

Abjuration in Golarion

The Acadamae, the premier magical college of the Varisian city of Korvosa, holds an annual event called the Breaching Festival. In it, participants are challenged to bypass or defeat the protective magics of the building which houses the school of abjuration.[3] Abjuration is also one of the chief focuses of study at the Stone of the Seers, Magnimar's best-known school of magic.[4]

Sin Magic

During the reign of the runelords of ancient Thassilon, abjuration was associated with the sin of envy (see sin magic), and was therefore the specialty of the ruler of the realm of Edasseril.[5]
