The Magebanes are set of artifacts in the shape of translucent orbs that played a vital role in the Dawn Revolution. A user of a Magebane is able to tap into the item and identify a sorcerer from 500 miles away. Using the Magebane further, the user is able to temporarily cut the sorcerer off from the wild magics they used. This power gave the Dawn of the Shield the ability to disrupt the ruling sorcerer warlords so that they could be defeated during the Dawn Revolution.
After the Dawn Revolution, the Magebanes were entrusted to the council of New Udrahan, and distributed in different areas of the Magelands so that sorcerers could never again gain full control of the country.
Because New Udrahan eventually collapsed in on itself, and the council no longer existing, the Dawn of the Shield has since taken over in the care and use of the Magebanes.
