Starfinder – Orbiting Force Disks

A new, force based, protective spell today. I try not to do too much with these as I feel like Starfinder left them out and took away spell failure and such to balance out the exchange. In this case, I hope it adds to the game without unbalancing it

You summon three invisible disks of force that orbit around you, serving as shields. Like shield, this negates magic missile attacks directed at you. The disks provide a +2 shield bonus to EAC and KAC, which increases to +3 when you align the shields to protect against a single foe (refer to the shield rules from the playtest and the upcoming Character Operations Manual). These shields have no maximum dexterity bonus, no armor check penalty, are weightless and do not reduce your speed. However, the shields provide no protection against laser weapons, which pass through the invisible barrier as though it was not there.

As a standard action you may choose to attack with one of the force disks, hurling it at a foe within range. Make a ranged attack against its EAC. If the attack hits, the disk deals 5d6 force damage. Doing so sacrifices the disk, lowering the shield bonus of the spell to +1, +2 when aligned against a single foe, as you only have two disks remaining. If you choose to sacrifice another you make a ranged EAC attack, dealing 5d6 force damage, and the shield bonus of the spell lowers to +0, +1 when aligned against a single foe. Sacrificing the last disk follows the same attack rules and ends the spell.
