This is an improved and combined version of Protection from Normal Missiles and the various Protection from Normal Weapons spells. It blocks attacks from all normal weapons, hand held or missiles, and reduces damage from large missiles (siege weapon missiles, giant hurled boulders, etc) by one point per die. The duration is one round per level of the caster, but that duration does not begin until the protected creature is attacked by a suitable weapon. The spell fades after 24 hours one way or the other. The material component is a small silver shield costing 1gp, the size of a charm bracelet bangle.
