With a magic-user's reliance on equipment that is best kept in a climate-controlled library far from danger, one would think there would be more spells for the protection of spell books, scrolls, and the like. The following spell for magic-users and elves addresses this concern.
Proof Against Fire
Spell Class: Magic-user
Spell Level: 3
Duration: 1 day per level of the caster upon exposure (also see below)
This spell provides total protection from normal fire for objects that would ordinarily be flammable or otherwise susceptible to damage from flames or excessive heat, e.g. paper, wood, cloth, wax, etc. The amount of material that may be so protected is equal in mass to one heavy book per level of the caster. This spell also provides limited protection from magical fire, e.g. fire balls, fire-based breath weapons, etc. Any object protected by proof against fire is entitled to a +2 bonus to saving throws made versus the appropriate magical fire-based attack. Any such saving throw is made as if by a magic-user of the same level as the caster who originally cast the spell at the time the object received its protection. A successful save means no damage was sustained by the object. The spell remains dormant until it is activated by exposure to destructive heat (with or without flames). Once activated, the protection lasts for one day per level of the caster or until three saving throws have been rolled (whichever comes first).
