Casting Time 1 swift action
Components V, S, F (foe you have struck with a melee weapon within 1 round)
Duration 10 min./level
Saving Throw Fortitude special (object); Spell Resistance yes
When you successfully strike a creature with a melee weapon and deal damage to it, you can cast blood armor as a swift action. The blood flowing from your foe magically increases in volume and forms a suit of plate armor around you, granting you a +6 armor bonus to AC for the spell’s duration. Additionally the armor prevents any of your own blood from flowing too copiously, making you immune to bleed effects.
Unlike mundane armor, blood armor has no armor check penalty, arcane spell failure chance, or speed reduction. Unlike mage armor, blood armor is not a force effect and thus incorporeal creatures can bypass it normally.
