Syntax: cast 'clay shield' <target>

With this simple but effective conjuration, an acolyte of earth may ward
himself or another with a shield of clay. This barrier will crumble the
first time it is struck, cancelling the attack completely. If the attack is
composed from any fire damage, however, the shield will be blasted away
ineffectually.
