Questions about Shielding

Postby Dextren on July 5th, 2011, 11:33 pm

I read the lore, I saw that Shielding (when in capable enough hands) can refuse/restrict/deny/etc physical force and/or Djed, from magic types of course.

I also saw that Shielding could restrict singular people, or even refuse entry from everyone except a person/race/etc, as well as specific types of force (like the slicing of an axe versus the blunt trauma of a mace).

My question is, Could shielding prevent or restrict the transfer of heat through its surface? I'm thinking something along the lines of a wizard forming a shield over his gloves or cloak or any clothing to trap in his body heat, making it that much more bearable to travel in cold temperatures, or to deflect the heat from the sun during excruciatingly hot environments.

If this is possible (which I assume, it is possible), would a Novice level shielder be able to do so with a small object, like I mentioned before, gloves or a cloak?

Well I think it should be possible, I mean you can deflect light why wouldn't heat work? But I doubt you could do it very effectively on novice level though. Novice shields are a bit leaky in the best posibility. But on competent it should be possible to do things like that.
