Saving Throw See description; Spell Resistance yes (harmless)
A brilliant holy radiance surrounds the subjects, protecting them from attacks, granting them resistance to spells cast by evil creatures, and causing evil creatures to become blinded when they strike the subjects. This spell has four effects.
- First, each warded creature gains a +4 deflection bonus to AC and a +4 resistance bonus on saves.
- Second, each warded creature gains spell resistance 25 against spells cast by evil creatures.
- Third, the spell protects the recipient from possession and mental influence. The subject immediately receives another saving throw (if one was allowed to begin with) against any spells or effects that possess or exercise mental control over the creature. This saving throw is made with a +2 morale bonus, using the same DC as the original effect. If successful, such effects are suppressed for the duration of this spell. The effects resume when the duration of this spell expires. While under the effects of this spell, the target is immune to any new attempts to possess or exercise mental control over the target.
- Finally, if an evil creature succeeds on a melee attack against a creature warded by a holy aura, the offending attacker is blinded (Fortitude save negates).
