You create a ward that protects up to 2,500 sq. ft. of floor space (an area 50 feet square). You can specify individuals that are unaffected by any or all effects. You can specify a password that makes the speaker immune. The spell creates:
1. Corridors Fog fills all the warded corridors.
2. Doors All doors in the warded area are magically locked and you can hide up to 10 doors with a minor illusion spell.
3. Stairs Webs fill all stairs, as the web spell.
4. Other Effects You can place 1 of the following:
  • Place dancing lights in 4 corridors.
  • Place magic mouth in two locations.
  • Place stinking cloud in two locations.
  • Place a constant gust of wind in one corridor or room.
  • Place a suggestion in one location.
The whole warded area radiates magic. A dispel magic removes only that effect. You can create a permanently warded structure by casting this spell there every day for 1 year.
