This spell is a powerful defense that protects the caster from a variety of attacks, albeit, for a relatively short duration. The spell creates an improved version of the Shield spell, providing an AC shield bonus of +4 by creating a plane of force that floats between the caster and incoming attacks, automatically absorbing magic missile attacks. Additionally, the exterior of the magical, floating shield is coated in a thick layer of ice that reacts to negate incoming fire damage. The ice coating is magically replenished each round. Each round, if the caster is exposed to an attack that would deal fire damage, the ice coating of the shield negates 5 fire damage (absorbing heat from the fire that would, potentially, harm the caster). This fire resistance 5 stacks with any other resistances the caster may have, as it acts before the fire come into contact with the caster.
Finally, the ice shield absorbs ice attacks to extend the duration of the spell. If the caster suffers an attack from a cold energy source, the ice shield absorbs 5 cold damage that would potentially harm the caster (treat as cold resistance 5 that stacks with other resistances). Each time the shield absorbs cold attack damage from a magical source (including dragon breath), the duration of the spell is extended an additional round.
The material component for this spell is a chunk of ice, which is consumed in the casting.
