One idea might be to have a check at the beginning of each spell (in the
spell procedure itself), so that when it is cast, if a spell of lesser
effect is on, it replaces that spell, adding the difference in armour
applies to it... if one of greater is on, the spell fizzles.

Erm... Yeah.  Whatever.
