Description

Adjusts a person's armor so that they can better recover from a failed spell casting attempt.

Mechanics

Fumbling or spell hindrance will cause (Armor Group * (6 - Rank)) seconds of hard roundtime instead of failing the cast. Roundtime may not be reduced with haste effects, and being undertrained for your armor will increase the roundtime.
