Provides a powerful defensive shield
Probably the most used ritual by the priests that are lucky enough to gain it. This ritual covers the target in a protective layer of shielding which soaks up damage. It is effectively a complete covering of armour which weighs nothing. Unfortunately it is not very good against specials, but can soak up a large amount of base round damage at high bonuses. It can also be extended by ‘stacking’. For example casting the ritual once leads to a 2 minute duration, casting it 4 times in a row stacks it to an 8 minute duration. The duration of a major shield after a single perform seems to be equal to you bonus, in seconds. (360 bonus -> 6 minutes)
Major Shield will place a protective shield around you that acts as a layer of armour against blows. It provides significantly more protection than the Minor Shield ritual. You'll need a holy symbol consecrated to your god and a shield to perform this ritual.
> perform major shield on me You speak a short prayer. You call upon Fish to protect yourself. You are protected by the power of Fish.
