Aetheric Shield

Aetheric Shield

Components: V, S, M (a glass lens)

Casting Time: 1 action

Duration: , up to 1 minute

Range: 30 ft.

Area of Effect: 1 lens, 10-ft. diameter

Saving Throw: None

You conjure an aetheric lens, 10 feet wide, within 30 feet of you. The lens protects those behind it from magic; any spell of 4th level or lower that requires a clear path through the lens is stopped entirely. The lens doesn’t interfere with spells you cast, and it doesn’t block area effects. For example, a fireball couldn’t be aimed directly through the lens, but if it was set off immediately in front of the lens, the blast would still affect people on the other side of the lens and within the fireball’s radius. You can spend a bonus action to move the lens to any point within 30 feet of you.

Enhancement: If aetheric shield is cast using a spell slot higher than 4th level, the lens protects against spells of equal or lower level than the spell slot you used.
