|Prerequisite:||Level 3 Aegis Spell|
|Brief Description:||Target is protected against all spells, or weapon hits with the 'strike' call|
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.
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.
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.
Magic Calls and 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.
