Armor Words

These words create translucent armor made of solid magic, protecting without weight or obstruction.

Force Block (Armor)

School abjuration; Level cleric 0, magus 0, sorcerer/wizard 0, summoner 0

Duration 1 round

Saving Throw Will negates (harmless); Spell Resistance no

Target Restrictions personal, selected

The target of a wordspell with this effect word receives a +1 armor bonus to its AC. This armor is made of force and provides protection against the attacks of incorporeal creatures.

Boost: A wordspell with this effect word can be cast as an immediate action. In this case, the effect lasts until the end of your next turn. This boost cannot be used if the wordspell includes another effect word (unless that word can also be cast as an immediate action). This boost increases this effect word's level by 1.

Force Shield (Armor)

School abjuration; Level alchemist 1, magus 1, sorcerer/wizard 1, summoner 1, witch 1

Duration 1 minute/level

Saving Throw Will negates (harmless); Spell Resistance no

Target Restrictions personal, selected

The target of a wordspell with this effect word receives a +4 armor bonus to its AC. This armor is made of force and provides protection against the attacks of incorporeal creatures.

Force Armor (Armor)

School abjuration; Level cleric 3, magus 3, sorcerer/wizard 3, witch 3

Duration 10 minutes/level

Saving Throw Will negates (harmless); Spell Resistance no

Target Restrictions personal, selected

The target of a wordspell with this effect word receives a +4 armor bonus to its AC + 1 point for every four levels of the caster. This armor is made of force and provides protection against the attacks of incorporeal creatures. If the target has a greater armor bonus from another source, a wordspell with this effect word instead increases that armor bonus by +1 and allows it to provide protection against the attacks of incorporeal creatures.

School abjuration; Level magus 6, sorcerer/wizard 6

Duration 10 minutes/level

Saving Throw Will negates (harmless); Spell Resistance no

Target Restrictions personal, selected

This effect word functions as force armor, but it grants a +6 armor bonus to AC + 1 point for every four levels of the caster. If the target has greater armor bonus from another source, a wordspell with this effect word increases that armor bonus by +2.
