Countermagic             Path of the Weavedancer Defensive Skill

Syntax: automatic

As a Weavedancer grows in power, certain manipulations of energy become
innate to her. She learns to recognize offensive magics quickly, and can
react to them even as they are unleashed upon her. This ability is known as
countermagic, and for good reason: with it, a mage has a chance of
nullifying an offensive spell cast at her, or even turning it back on her
attacker. It is almost impossible, however, to perform countermagic against
another who knows countermagic as well.
