How does a fortress defend from magical attacks?
Hey, everyone. Joined the forums to ask this specific question.
In standard fantasy rpg, how do castles/keeps/fortresses prepare their defenses to repel powerful magical attacks. I was having this discussion with a friend, and neither of us could come up with a satisfactory answer. I would assume that a standard resident mage (or group of mages) would be necessary to counter attacks of that nature . . . but is there anything else keeps do to prepare themselves for such a thing?
Thanks for any help . . .
