Defensive spells that might work against various seeking methods:
- Kipperwald's Perlustration Prevention is a defensive wizard spell that prevents scrying into a room.
- Banishing of Prying Eyes gives to a bonus to resist scrying attempts, at least those that involve air distortions.
- Wearing a jet black magick crystal is reported as granting to the wearer a weaker version of Banishing of Prying Eyes, with the addition that it flickers when some methods of scrying succeed against the wearer.
