Cost: 3 ST, plus 1 per turn.
This requires Destroy Creation to negate, which can create some interesting tactical twists, but that seems like a small incentive when you can't take advantage of a C spell's potential range and, at only 13 IQ, you can get the equivalent of half-plate protection for a lower ST cost through Stone Flesh. Summoning a weapon that grants the talent to use it is cool, but I'd probably give it a fixed duration.
