Immunity to weapons was a common spell used by shugenja in Kara-Tur.[2] The spell was very rare outside Kara-Tur.[1]


When cast, this spell allowed the shugenja or targeted creature to gain an immunity to all non-magical weapons. A powerful shugenja was able to use this spell to grant immunity to some magical weapons as well. Once cast, the recipient was immune to damage caused by a weapon. This immunity only applied to weapons, the recipient was still vulnerable to natural abilities, such as fangs or claws. They were also vulnerable to weapons wielded by very powerful creatures.[1][2]

Vulnerability was the reverse of the spell. It had the opposite effect, lowering a targeted creature's tolerance for damage. It also allowed a creature who was immune to non-magical weapons to become vulnerable to such as attack.[1][2]


In addition to verbal and somatic components, the spell and its reverse required a material component: a dagger worth 5 ch'ien. The dagger was shattered by the shugenja when the spell was cast.[1][2]
