Green Sun Rising
Impenetrable Frost Barrier
Cost: 2m, 1wp; Type: Shape Spell
Target: Out to Short Range
Duration: One Scene
The sorcerer takes a deep breath and breathes out a thin, cold blue-gray plume of frost. The barrier then crystalizes, growing denser and begining to swirl as though the caster stood at the heart of a winter storm.
The curtain of frost can extend out to Short Range of the caster, a thin wall with a protected "eye" in the center. This barrier an penalty of 1+(Essence/2) to strike anyone within as a cover penalty. Passing through barrier requires a roll against the same difficulty. Even if an attack does manage to strike its target through the barrier, the frost dulls its force, subtracting 1+(Essence/2) from the attack's damage.
Lastly, the crystaline glitter of ice and muffling fog imposes a -1 Perception penalty to anyone attempting to look within.
