The geomancer summons a luopan (a small orb that floats just above the ground that is a pylon of geomantic energies) within the spell range that has hit points equal to 10 x the geomancer’s level and a hardness equal to its spell level. This luopan emits the effect in the area of the luopan that affects specified targets. When the duration is over, the luopan is unsummoned.
The affected foes within the selective area have their physical damage reduced. All targets of this spell must make a Will save per round as long as they are within reach of the spell. If they fail the save, the damage they deal with physical attacks is reduced by 1 per two caster levels.
