Description: Beginning the path of draconic magic, a magician must first understand the Life Dragons' powerful connection to the land. Embed the Cycle is a practical education in such things, inspired by or drawn from the strength the cycle of life and death gives them. The spell taps into the natural world and embeds it within the magician's flesh, strengthening it against harm. The efficacy of such a power is not only based on the strength of the spell, but of the world around the magician. Places where nature reigns result in a stronger ward, while urban areas weaken the effect.
Effect: Standard percentage damage barrier against all types
Example Messaging: You draw upon the essence of the natural cycle, embedding a sliver of its power into your frail body. Your flesh warps painlessly and transforms into a multi-colored coat of scales that slowly shifts in hue and pattern.

Your scales absorb some of the attack!

Devices/Tattoos: No devices or tattoos documented.

Self in wild: Your flesh is covered by a fine coat of protective scales, gifted by a sliver of the cycle of nature itself. They swirl swiftly through vibrant hues of all the colors of the spectrum.
Self-cast by an Empath: Your flesh is covered by a multi-colored coat of protective scales, gifted by a sliver of the cycle of nature itself. They feel a touch weighty on your frame and shift in color seemingly at random.
