|Description:||The Grounding Field spell establishes an electrical field about the magician that redirects hostile energies harmlessly into Elanthia. When establishing a field it must be attuned to fire, cold or electrical sources specifically. While much trial and hardship has resulted in a stable barrier that will not interfere with the caster's own attacks be warned that the field will amplify energy sources it is not attuned to.|
|Effect:||Elemental damage barrier that nullifies damage from the attuned element but amplifies damage from others.|
|Example Messaging:||You drop to one knee as you firmly press your palms into the ground.|
A lattice-like sphere of electricity attuned to <element> forms about you.
The way it works is slightly complex, but the basic logic it should follow is this:
If the attack is purely elemental and the primary element is what you're attuned to, the attack will be stopped entirely.
If the attack is both elemental and physical, and the primary element is what you're attuned to, the elemental component will be stripped away entirely.
If the attack's primary element is not what you are attuned to, any damage from both elements you are not attuned to will be increased. Any damage from the element you are attuned to will still be nullified (though for brevity this isn't messaged).
- If set to fire, it will prevent naphtha from igniting but will not extinguish already burning naphtha.
- Grounding Field can't be RELEASED: You attempt to scatter the Grounding Field about you, but the spell quickly nullifies your efforts. You'll just have to wait for the magic to wane on its own schedule.
