Syntax: cast 'cloak of the void'

This spell wraps the caster in a cloak of negative energy, granting them a
significant reduction to all damage except holy damage. They will receive
increased reduction against cold damage and a bonus to their armour class.

The defiling power of the cloak cannot be maintained alongside the sanctuary
spell, and so will replace any such effect.

This spell cannot be used by anyone who has accrued gold aura. In fact, the
darker the caster's aura, the greater damage reduction this spell provides.

Primary Attributes: Intelligence, Wisdom
