      This spell creates a shimmering, translucent suit of full plate armor around the caster. This armor grants no physical protection from attacks.

It prevents 3d4 spell levels of 1st to 3rd level spells from passing through to affect the caster. This includes innate abilities and effects from devices. Spells may still be cast out of the armor, and the armor has no actual physical presence so does not interfere with any armor or clothing the caster happens to be wearing.

Tarys' Shining Knight
      (abjuration, alteration)

Range:                 0
Components:       V,S,M
Duration:             1 Turn plus 1 Round per level
Casting Time:      5
Area of Effect:      caster's armor
Saving Throw:      none

      This spell can only be cast if the caster is wearing armor of the plate category (platemail, half plate etc.). The armor takes on a silver sheen and becomes nonconductive while the spell is in effect, as well as acquiring several traits which can be of great aid. The plates of the armor become stronger, granting an additional +1 to Armor Class, and actually reducing the damage done by physical attacks. Blunt attacks do 2 less points of damage, and slashing attacks do 1 less. Piercing attacks, designed to find the holes in armor, are unaffected.
     The armor grants the caster a +3 bonus to saves versus heat/fire, lightning, acid (and other flesh corrosive substances), boiling liquids, and vapors. Also, the armor cannot be adhered to, whether it is by a mages spider climb spell, a web spell, a mimics psuedopod, a stirge, spider webs, or viscid blobs. The wearer can actually push through a web spell at triple the normal rate, and if below 13 strength, at 2 feet per round.
      The material component for this spell is a miniature suit of solid silver plate armor, valued at no less than 100 gp.
