Creates armor out of the caster's life-force
|Spell Level: 3||Rarity: Uncommon (restricted to necromancers)|
|Schools: Necromancy, Shadow|
|Components: V, S, M (a square of black silk)|
|Range: Personal||Casting Time: 3|
|Duration: 2 rds/level||Saving Throw: Special|
|Target: The caster|
When this spell is cast, a bit of the caster's life-essence creates a shimmering coat of armor. The armor provides AC 4, and grants the bearer a +3 bonus on saving throws against magical attacks. The armor doesn't add weight or encumbrance, and doesn't interefere with spellcasting.
When the spell ends, the caster must make a saving throw vs. spell or lose the life-essence that went into the armor, taking 2d3 points of damage that will not heal naturally (magical healing will repair it, however).
