Weavecraft                         Path of the Weavedancer Skill

Syntax: automatic

The path of the weavedancer reveals many secrets to its disciples,
amounting to an unparalleled mastery over the Weave and ways of magic. This
weavecraft permits such a scholar to tap any ley lines, regardless of
whether they resonate with the spheres of his spell. This skill also
reduces the cost of maintaining weavesense.

A mage gifted with weavecraft can furthermore draw the local Weave about
himself to shield himself from harm, reducing the amount of damage he takes.
For physical damage, this reduction is based on the combined power of the
ley lines present; for other types, it is based on the combined power of
appropriate ley lines. In particular, positively-charged quintessence will
shield the scholar from negative, harm, and defilement damage, while
negatively-charged energy will shield him from holy and light damage.
Orderly ley lines will offer reduction to fire, lightning, and illusion
damage, while chaotic ones will protect from cold, sound, and mental damage.
