Consecrated Stronghold

6th-level evocation

Classes: cleric

Casting Time: 10 minutes

Range: Touch

Components: V, S, M (four vials of holy water)

Duration: Until dispelled

This spell blesses your entire stronghold, up to a 60-foot-radius from the point you touch, with radiant energy. Creatures slain within your consecrated stronghold cannot be turned into undead for as long as the spell lasts, even if their bodies are removed from your stronghold. If you cast deathless defenders to animate skeletal or zombie defenders within your consecrated stronghold, they gain resistance to radiant damage and a +1 bonus on attack and damage rolls. All other undead take a -1 penalty on attack and damage rolls and have weakness to radiant energy.

A consecrated stronghold automatically dispels any hallow spells within your stronghold, and no new hallow spell can be cast there while the consecrated stronghold persists unless the hallow spell’s caster level exceeds yours, in which case the consecrate caster must attempt a caster level check (DC 15 + your caster level) or the spell fails. Even if successfully cast, the hallow spell’s duration is 24 hours instead of indefinite.
