Lesser spell mantle

Spell level: sorcerer/wizard 5

Innate level: 5
School: abjuration
Components: verbal, somatic
Range: personal
Area of effect: caster
Duration: 1 round / level
Save: harmless
Spell resistance: no
Additional counterspells: lesser spell breach

Description: Creates a barrier around the caster that absorbs all incoming spells and spell-like abilities. It can absorb up to 1d4+6 levels of spells before collapsing.


  • Mantles do not absorb all spells, just the ones that check spell resistance.
  • This spell replaces earlier castings of itself, and it also displaces earlier castings of spell mantle and greater spell mantle.
  • The empowered version of this spell occupies a level 7 spell slot and absorbs 10-15 spell levels before collapsing, which is similar to what is absorbed by spell mantle. Mages with the empower spell feat — particularly sorcerers, who have a limited spell selection — may want to use this spell (empowered) instead of spell mantle, at least until spell mantle can be empowered.
  • Due to a .2da bug, lesser spell breach is not an additional counterspell of this spell.
