Buckler of Thorns

Conjuration cantrip

Casting Time: 1

Range: Personal

Saving Throw: None

Components: V, S, M

Duration: 1 round

Upon uttering the spell, the caster’s arm is woven about with a thick buckler made from coiling bramble vines. This buckler grants +1 to AC and lasts until the end of the caster’s next turn.

Its abilities increase as the caster’s level increases, and the caster is always proficient with the shield.

At fifth level, the shield becomes spiked and the druid can use it as a weapon, inflicting 1d6 points of piercing damage on a successful hit. At eleventh level, the spikes are coated with a weak paralyzing poison; those struck must succeed at a Constitution save against the druid’s save DC or be paralyzed until the end of their next turn. This save is made at advantage. At seventeenth level, the shield’s AC bonus increases to +2 and the shield deals 2d6 damage on a successful attack.

The material component of this spell is a length of bramble vine twisted in a loop that is worn as a bracelet prior to casting.
