This spell creates an invisible aura around the caster or a touched spell recipient. It moves with the protected being, and prevents all spells and spell-like abilities of 6th level or less from having any effect on said being.
The protected being can cast spells and wield magical items normally (even on himself, within the aura). This usage has no effect on the mystic shield, nor does it prevent the protected being from succesfully summoning a Leomund’s secret chest or using Drawmij’s instant summons, or any other spell that brings things to the caster. Magical armor and protections worn or used by the protected being function normally within the aura.
To physical attacks and senses, the mystic shield does not exist. A magical blade striking the protected being inflicts normal damage, but any magical special effects are negated. Attack and damage bonuses are used as normal, but a sword’s flame burst would be negated.
Material Component: A stone, a drop of blood, a tear from the caster’s eye, and a clear gemstone of not less than 400gp value.


Kalthanan researched this powerful arcane shield in order to ensure protection from a wide array of spells without sacrificing his own ability to cast spells and use magic items. Elyanth Mytheletar, the deceased archmage of Shar-Issantys, was Kalthanan’s partner in developing this potent sorcery.
