Aspect of the Deity

(Defenders of the Faith: A Guidebook to Clerics and Paladins)

Transmutation [Evil, Good]
Level: Mysticism 6,

As lesser aspect of the deity, but you take on all the qualities of a celestial or fiendish creature (see the Monster Manual for complete details):

  • You take on a shining, metallic appearance (for good clerics) or a more fearsome appearance (for evil).
  • You gain the ability to smite evil or good once a day.

Add your Charisma bonus to your attack roll and your character level to your damage roll against a foe of that alignment.
  • You gain darkvision to a range of 60 ft.
  • You gain acid, cold, and electricity resistance 20 (for good clerics) or cold and fire resistance 20 (for evil clerics).
  • You gain damage reduction 10/+3.
  • You gain spell resistance 25.

Your creature type does not change (you do not become an outsider).
