This spell protects the caster and those travelling close to him from one specific element. There are therefore five versions of this spell – one for the elements of Air, Earth, Fire and Water, plus a fifth for Wood, which covers forests and jungles. The spell creates a direct channel of prayer to the ancestors who have some governance of the element concerned; their power forms a protective bubble, visible as a whirling miasma of supernatural energy, about the caster and any others included in the spell. For the spell’s duration, attacks from that element, including magical ones, are ineffective, bouncing off the supernatural shield sent by the ancestors. However the shield works both ways and magical or physical attacks launched from those inside it cannot penetrate the barrier and are rendered inert. The bubble of protection moves with the caster and movement rates are unhindered whilst the spell is active. The material component of the spell is a small amount of the element concerned which the caster must clasp in his palm.
