Level:Sorcerer/Wizard 4 Components: V, S, M Casting Time: 1 standard action Range: Personal Target, Effect, or Area: You
Duration: 1 round per caster level (D)
Saving Throw: None Spell Resistance: Yes (see text)
This spell envelops the caster in a coating of acid that causes damage to each creature that attacks the caster in melee. The acid also protects the caster from force-based attacks. Any creature that strikes the caster with its body or a melee weapon deals normal damage, but at the same time, the attacker or weapon (caster's choice) takes 1d6 points of acid damage +1 per caster level. If a creature has spell resistance, it applies to this damage. A weapon with exceptional reach, such as a longspear, does not expose its user to acid damage, but may be damaged itself in this way.
In addition, the acid that covers the caster reduces the effects of force-based attacks. The caster takes only half damage from such attacks. if the attack allows a Reflex save for half damage, the caster takes no damage on a successful save.
Material component: A pinch of wood ash and a piece of bone.
