Do not fill this in!=====Arcane Spell Failure===== Armor interferes with the gestures that a spellcaster must make to cast an arcane spell that has a somatic component. Arcane spellcasters face the possibility of arcane spell failure if they’re wearing armor. [[SRD:Bard|Bard]]s can wear light armor without incurring any [[SRD:Arcane Spell Failure Chance|arcane spell failure chance]] for their [[SRD:Bard|bard]] spells. ======Casting an Arcane Spell in Armor====== A character who casts an arcane spell while wearing armor must usually make an arcane spell failure roll. The number in the [[SRD:Arcane Spell Failure Chance|Arcane Spell Failure Chance]] column on [[SRD:Armor#Table: Armor and Shields|Table: Armor and Shields]] is the chance that the spell fails and is ruined. If the spell lacks a somatic component, however, it can be cast with no chance of arcane spell failure. ======Shields====== If a character is wearing armor and using a shield, add the two numbers together to get a single [[SRD:Arcane Spell Failure Chance|arcane spell failure chance]].
