Upon casting this spell, a low hum fills the air as a field of sonic energy surrounds you, granting you a +4 deflection bonus to AC. Any opponent successfully striking you with a melee weapon takes 1d4 points of sonic damage, as a burst of noise erupts from the energy field.

Attackers striking with natural attacks or an unarmed strike, as well as any opponent initiating a grapple, instead take 1d8 points of sonic damage, and must make a Fortitude save or be stunned for 1 round. A silence spell can suppress but not negate the shield for its duration.
