Most Shield spells are masterwork Barrier Spells, and demonstrating them is often one of the first tests that a Wizard has attained a mastery of his art.
Mana is woven into a magical Shield that forms around you in a roughly ovoid shape, large enough to cover your entire body. The Shield is translucent and made of the type of energy of the School from which it was cast. The energy of the Shield gives off light (see individual spells for details.)
The Shield is only solid when the caster wills it to be, and solidifying a Shield allows a spell caster to defend themselves with the power of their mind, rather then physical strength or dexterity.
Damage sustained when defending in this manner is dealt first to the Shield itself, which has strength depending on the mana spent. When the Shield's strength is depleted it fades, and any excess damage is dealt to the caster.
Shield spells often have unique effects depending on the School of Magic from which they were cast. See individual spell tomes for details.
