This spell creates a short marble column about one foot in diameter. The column has an armour class of 7, hardness 15 and 20 hit points. Being stone, it is immune to fire, cold and piercing damage.

By itself, the column does nothing. However, it can be used by the spellcaster as the target of a spell, which the column absorbs initially without apparent effect. In the first round following the absorption of a spell, it releases the spell at a specified target or area. In the round thereafter, it releases a second identical spell at the same target or area.

If the original spell designated a individual as a target, that individual must be within 30 feet of its original position for the repeated spell to have effect; otherwise the second spell fails.

Spells with a range of personal or touch cannot be absorbed, nor can the column absorb more than one spell at a time. However, in any round after the column has released its second copy of a spell, the column can be retargeted with the same or a different spell. The column can continue to be used by the caster in this way until the duration expires or the column is destroyed.

Material Component: A marble chip.
