PREREQUISITES: Abjuration Specialist, about to take his 5th, 10th, 15th or 20th level in the Wizard character class
REPLACES: This Ability replaces one of the Bonus feats normally gained by a Wizard every 5 levels
EFFECT: You can weave your magic around yourself for protection.
Whenever you cast an abjuration spell of 1st level or higher (from your own spells per day, not from a magic item) you can use a strand of the spell’s magic to create a magical ward on yourself that lasts until the end of the current encounter.
The ward has hit points equal to your caster level + your Intelligence modifier.
Whenever you take damage the ward takes the damage instead. Poison, energy drain and any other effects that are part of an attack are also effectively negated. Some effects (like a wolf’s trip attempt or the improved grapple ability of some Monsters) might still affect you. If in doubt, ask your DM.
If the ward is reduced to 0 hit points you take any remaining damage (and also suffer any side effects).
While the ward has 0 hit points it can’t absorb damage, but it’s magic remains. Whenever you cast an abjuration spell of 1st level or higher, the ward regains a number of hit points equal to twice the level of the spell.
You can create the ward only once per encounter.
