A trained woodsman can learn how to weave a very special shield from a few
branches and twigs. He can fashion a magical shield that will contain great
powers granted by Nature, and that only he can use properly. The shield that the
woodsman creates by skill and magic is extremely solid and resistant. Only one
shield can be created by the woodsman, and it can be used only by him. Guild
knowledge and masteries have noticeable effects on the power of the shield.

The learned woodsman can focus his thoughts and inner strength to be in complete
harmony with Nature, thus gaining a better control over his own mind. It has
been said that expert woodsmen were able to ignore some psychic or magical
attacks using these techniques, and it has been long known that woodsmen could
use their mind walls to avoid getting stunned in combat. Expert woodsmen are
also taught the willow roots skill, and knowledge of that skill can improve the
effects of inner walls.

A trained woodsman can handle his nature's twigshield or his rootstaff with
almost careless speed, relying on his instinct and reflexes to deflect attacks
aimed at him. However, the woodsman lacks the formal training of a warrior and
cannot be as efficient, especially in large parties where he has difficulties to
protect his party members.

By a simple technique of meditation and delving to the inner self, the woodsman
can induce a translike state where he achieves a strong link to his subconcious.
Through this link the woodsman receives information in the form of heightened
intuition of events that are just about to happen, thus boosting his ability to
anticipate and avoid his opponents' hits.
This skill using time varies somewhat.

since fire can devastate wooden areas. Yet it also provides heat and protection
in the wild, and fire is definitely part of Nature and a potential ally of the
woodsman. Dealing with fire spirits is often tricky, but it can provide with
great protection from fire for a woodsman's twigshield or rootstaff.
