Dragonward

You expand the magic of your dragondaunt shield into the space around you and your allies, preventing the dragon from coming near you.

Component Cost: Focus (dragondaunt shield)
Market Price: 1000 gp
Key Skill: Arcana
Level: 10
Category: Binding
Time: 10 minutes
Duration: 1 hour

You create a stationary ward in a burst 6 centered on the dragondaunt shield. The affected area glows faintly silver for the duration of the ritual’s effect. A dragon whose level is lower than your Arcana check result minus 15 cannot enter the affected area or affect creatures inside or through the area. Other dragons can, but they take force damage equal to your Arcana check result and end the effect when they do so.
