Counter-magic

5th-levelAbjuration

Casting Time: 1

Range: Touch

Saving Throw: Wisdom

Components: V, S, M, DF

Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute

This spell creates an aura around the recipient which negates certain magical enchantments and special abilities. There are three variations of the spell and the caster must choose one when the spell is cast. The counter-magic only suppresses the opponent’s magic. It does not dispel it. Dispel magic can remove a counter-magic aura. Artifacts and divine creatures of demigod or higher status are unaffected.

  • Defensive: The creature touched is surrounded by a blue aura which negates magical attack bonuses up to +3 from magic weapons, spells, or supernatural or spell-like abilities while the caster engages them in melee combat. Thus, an enemy’s +3 sword acts as a normal sword against a person protected by a defensive counter-magic spell. The spell has no effect on bonuses received from strength or similar natural ability, even if said abilities are magically augmented. The material component is a small, palm-sized silver shield worth at least 50 gp cost.
  • Offensive: The creature touched is surrounded by a red aura which negates an opponent’s magical AC bonuses up to +3 from magic armor, items, spells, or supernatural or spell-like abilities while the caster engages them in melee combat. Thus, an enemy’s +3 chainmail only confers protection as normal chainmail. The spell has no effect on bonuses received from dexterity or similar natural abilities, even if those abilities are magically augmented, but does stop spells from augmenting said abilities after this effect is placed. A spell touch attack is necessary to use this effect. The material component is a small, palm-sized silver gauntlet worth at least 50 gp.
  • Reduction Nullification: The creature touched is surrounded by an orange counter-magic aura which nullifies its resistance against nonmagical damage. The material component is a small, palm-sized silver weapon worth at least 50 gp.
