Associated Domain: Death

Granted Powers: You can cause the living to bleed at a touch, and find comfort in the presence of the dead.

Bleeding Touch (Sp): As a melee touch attack, you can cause a living creature to take 1d6 points of damage per round. This effect persists for a number of rounds equal to 1/2 your cleric level (minimum 1) or until stopped with a DC 15 Heal check or any spell or effect that heals damage. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.

Secrets of Death (Su): At 8th level, you can cast spells of the necromancy school as if your caster level were 1 higher than normal, and as if your Wisdom score were 2 higher than normal. At 16th level, you can cast such spells as if your caster level were 2 higher than normal, and as if your Wisdom score were 4 higher than normal. This ability is usable a number of times per day equal to 1/2 your cleric level.

The disciplines of Samhain permit clerics to amplify their magical workings through an innate understanding of the cycle of death and rebirth. By communicating with entities from outside the mortal coil, they gain wisdom and power beyond the understanding of most other casters.
