In the First Epoch, a group of Tamlêrran wizards built six towering monoliths. These were built to house magic and serve as anchors for a powerful ward. The wizards that built these monoliths were the most powerful mages of Magrâbik. The task of making them was difficult, expensive, and in the beginning resulted in the deaths of several arch-mages who overextended themselves.

It is interesting to note, that we have yet to be harried or eviscerated by weave spiders. We dabble on the fringes of the Web of Magic and still no attacks - could it be that they know we do Arcana's work? We will soon see if their passivity holds when we are at their doors, ready to pierce the Web and use its power for a noble cause.

- Urizamar, Cornerstone Inquisitor, from a personal journal - "Monolith Makers"

After trial and error, the mages learned that it required at least ten of them pooling their arcane skills to empower each monolith. The first two were built on the southern edge of Magrâbik where it meets the fiery lands of Anubeth, and its opposite was placed where Magrâbik meets with the icy wastes of Igas. The monoliths were built with a rune carved stone called Tolm. This material served as a medium for tapping into the Web of Magic and drawing magical energy to power a very large ward. With the first two monoliths, the ward spanned the northern borders of the two volatile regions. Over time, more monoliths were made, expanding to two in Igas and two in Anubeth. These six monoliths became a containment wards for the unstable lands and its denizens. The Elemantum Boundary Ward is strongest in the north where it keeps Magrâbik safe from the expanding size of the southern regions. In the other directions, the Magrâbik Monoliths serve to keep the advancing glaciers of Igas and the lava flows of Anubeth at a slow, but steady pace. This slow pace translates to a 30% increase in the size of Igas and 20% increase in Anubeth since the Glacial Throne and Pumice Throne were activated.
