A malevolent darkness surrounds
the subjects, protecting them from attacks, granting them resistance to spells
cast by good creatures, and weakening good creatures when they strike the subjects.
This abjuration has four effects.
First, each warded creature
gains a +4 deflection bonus to AC and a +4 resistance bonus on saves. Unlike
the effect of protection from
good, this benefit applies against all attacks, not just against attacks
by good creatures.
Second, a warded creature
Resistance 25 against good spells and spells cast by good creatures.
Third, the abjuration blocks
possession and mental influence, just as protection from good does.
Finally, if a good creature
succeeds on a melee attack against a warded creature, the offending attacker
takes 1d6 points of temporary Strength damage (Fortitude negates).
Focus A tiny reliquary containing some sacred relic, such as a piece of parchment
from an unholy text. The reliquary costs at least 500 gp.
