Desecrated Stronghold

6th-level evocation

Classes: cleric

Casting Time: 10 minutes

Range: Touch

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

Duration: Until dispelled

This spell blesses your entire stronghold, up to a 60-foot radius from the point you touch, with necrotic energy. Living creatures that normally have resistance to necrotic energy lose that resistance within the desecrated stronghold, and celestials can’t enter the area, and any effects used by celestials that charm, frighten, or possess creatures have no effect within the area, ending immediately if creatures so affected enter the area. Undead within the desecrated stronghold gain a +1 bonus on attack and damage rolls.

A desecrated stronghold automatically dispels any hallow spells within your stronghold, and no new hallow spell can be cast there while the desecrated 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.
