Syntax: cast 'shell of stone'

Shell of stone enfolds the caster in a thick carapace of stone, granting a
significant bonus to his armor class. It is more difficult to shatter the knee
of someone so encased. Weapons colliding with this carapace have a chance to
break from the impact, those which slash into the stone being more
susceptible. Indestructible weapons are not subject to this.

However, it is a great deal more difficult to move while surrounded by this
carapace of stone, significantly increasing movement costs and occasionally
delaying the caster when he moves.
