Defense Boost makes sense that it would reduce the damage by a percentage, however this is very hard to calculate in game, might I suggest reducing it by a number of dice, with the die removed being based on the Int or Wis modifier of the caster, so if a wizard casted Defense Up, and his Int were 16, you would reduce it by 3dX (d4 seems most likely)
Adding to the Armor Class works best as an Evasion style more than a resistance.
I'll add more later, I have to run to work.
On the spell duration, is that just for Stat Boosts? I would say a d6 would be a good place to start, depending on how you make combat flow, it may be wiser to have stat boosts last longer, but then that also depends on the level of the spells, I would say the boost should last around 3/4's of the combat duration, that would be a little lower than the "feel" of the Mana games, but also be within balance of the d20 system.

Depending on how your monsters and character classes are designed you may have longer or shorter battles than in stard d20 D&D especially if you have high average AC's and HP's, so say your average battle lasts 6 turns, I would say a d6 would be a good choice, if it last an average of 8 rounds, I would say a 2d4, it all depends on how long your battles last on average.
Then again you could just stick a d4 in there and play it a few times, if it seems too weak, then up it. That could potentially save yourself some time, assuming you can find someone to help you try it, doing it on your lonesome is rather boring.
Did you mean drawings when you said astists welcome Duran? I've got three of my manga character that I want to post, but I'm having some problems doing that so Sheexy agreed to post them for me after I send it to him though email. I don't know what it will look like sice my scanner isn't that good. I'll also write about them after Sheexy posts them. Will it be my topic or his, I don't know yet, but I'll keep you posted if you want me to on that topic.
There will be a new topic most likely.
