Surrounds the target in dancing sparks, which blocks elemental damage 100% for a very limited time, though duration is reasonable while not absorbing damage (10 minutes or more). Known types of damage it blocks are spear, pragi and KOF (wizardly spells).

The shelter will only protect against two waves of damage, regardless of how powerful they are - this means 2x JHSD or 2x KOF bunny waves.

The ritual takes far too long to perform to be useful in combat, and is a reasonably difficult ritual to perform - good for TMing defensive.

You sing an ode to snow.


You let your set of polished golden pearl prayer beads slip between your fingers.
You whistle a long plaintive note toward the sky.
A rain of sparkles falls from the sky, nearly touching the ground before beginning to swirl around your body.  288  308
