Anti-Magic Aura

Anti-magic aura creates a powerful magic field around the recipient that prevents all spells, both harmful or beneficial (including restoration magic). During the minute the spell lasts it automatically prevents any spell effects, or weapon attacks with the 'strike' call that hit the character.

Anti-magic aura stops creature special abilities if they are represented as a “spell effect” such as the fear ability of a bagman.

Related Rules

Strike Calls

A strike call indicates that a weapon attack is inflicting a spell's effects instead of its normal damage. 'Strike' attacks always deal a fixed amount of damage based on the spell being used instead of your standard weapon damage. Things that improve your weapon damage have no impact on an attack with the 'strike' call.

Strike calls may never be made blunt even if they come from a melee weapon.

Poison Attacks Are Not Spells

When the poison call is added to any attack even a spell effect such as pin or stun that attack no longer counts as a spell. This means that immunities to spell or compulsion effects no longer apply. The attack is now a poison effect.

Acid Attacks Are Not Spells

When the acid call is part of an attack, that attack never counts as a spell. This means that an immunity to spell effects does not apply. The attack is an acid effect.

Magic Calls and Spells

It should be noted that weapon attacks that make the magic call are different from a spell. The only time a weapon attack counts as a spell is if it uses the strike call.

Detailed Interactions

Dispel Magic and Anti-Magic Aura

Because anti-magic aura is equal level to dispel magic the dispel does not have any effect, not even to remove the anti-magic aura effect.

Medium Five's Speak With Dead and Aegis Spells

The spells anti-magic shield, anti-magic aura, and aura of reflection (and the alchemy compound ethereal sealant) all prevent (or reflect) spells from affecting you. Because the medium five ability "speak with dead" is treated as a spell that is cast on a dead character's body, each of these effects will prevent (or reflect to a living character) the speak with dead spell, preventing one casting of it. A "No Effect" call must be made whenever an attack successfully hits you but does not inflict damage (or does not take effect in the case of spells) so that the attacker knows-that-you-know the attack successfully hit and so that they know they may need to attack with something different.
