The shield spell creates a sphere of magical protection around the
caster.  The shield wears out over time until it finally disappears.
The caster can only have one magical shield up at any one time.

You can also add an additional optional field when casting this
spell.  You may 'cast shield <type> <target>' where <type> can be
'acid', 'fire', 'lightning', 'poison', 'cold', or 'magic'.  Please
note that this is defensive and is unlike the other elemental shields
Also, the spirit shields are not as specialized in the elements as
shields in other spheres, therefore, they offer less resistance to
the elements.

Use 'cast shield dispel' to your current shield. You can only end a
shield cast on yourself.
