This spell wreathes the character in flame and causes damage to each creature who attacks the character in melee. The flames also protect the character from either cold-based or fire-based attacks (the character's choice).
Any creature striking the character with its body or handheld weapons deals normal damage, but at the same time the attacker takes 1d6 points of damage +1 point per caster level. This damage is either cold damage (if the shield protects against fire-based attacks) or fire damage (if the shield protects against cold-based attacks). If a creature has spell resistance, it applies to this damage. Note that weapons with exceptional reach do not endanger their users in this way.
When casting this spell, the character appears to be immolated, but the flames are thin and wispy, shedding no heat and giving light equal to only half the illumination of a normal torch (10 feet). The color of the flames is determined randomly (50% chance of either color)blue or green if the chill shield is cast, violet or blue if the warm shield is employed. The special powers of each version are as follows.
Warm Shield: The flames are warm to the touch. The character takes only half damage from cold-based attacks. If that attack allows a Reflex save for half damage, the character takes no damage on a successful save.
Chill Shield: The flames are cool to the touch. The character takes only half damage from fire-based attacks. If that attack allows a Reflex save for half damage, the character takes no damage on a successful save.
