Description upon doing a bit of playing i discovered snow shield wasn't blocking damage it should have been, adjusted the mechanics it uses to check for damage type code instead of its string and now all is well again. i will also be updating the spell to use praxis steps soon.
Reason the orginal version had some bad code in which it was checking each dtype used in an attack on its owner, then checking the damage type string against a list of predefined strings and formulating how much damage would be abosrbed from that. someone updated it to use the proper style which involves using macros for damage types instead of hand coded strings, thus sort of always allowing attacks fall through because "crushing" will never equal an integer which is what those macros return.
Result snow shield works again
