Ward against lightning
Ward against lightning is a technique in SLASH'EM that monks get at level 15. This technique is given instead of intrinsic shock resistance, as in vanilla nethack. The technique gives shock resistance for 50-149 + the level of the technique turns. It can be used again after 500-1499 turns.
There is no effect if you possess intrinsic shock resistance.
- You invoke the ward against lightning!
- You activated the technique.
- You feel a little static cling.
- The technique has expired and you do not have another source of shock resistance.
