Cure Moderate Wounds
Conjuration (Healing) 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will half (harmless); see text - Yes (harmless); see text Adp 2, Brd 2, Clr 2, Drd 3, Healing 2, Pal 3, Rgr 3 V, S
Instant Touch General
Target: Creature touched

Cures 2d8 damage +1/level (max. +10).

This spell functions like cure light wounds, except that it cures 2d8 points of damage + 1 point per caster level (maximum +10).

Evocation [Light] 1 standard action PRPG-O
None - No Adp 3, Brd 3, Clr 3, Drd 3, Pal 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S
10 min./level (D) Touch 4 hours
Target: Object touched

60-ft. radius of bright light.

You touch an object when you cast this spell, causing the object to shed bright light in a 60-foot radius. This illumination increases the light level for an additional 60 feet by one step (darkness becomes dim light, dim light becomes normal light, and normal light becomes bright light). Creatures that take penalties in bright light take them while within the 60-foot radius of this magical light. Despite its name, this spell is not the equivalent of daylight for the purposes of creatures that are damaged or destroyed by such light.

If daylight is cast on a small object that is then placed inside or under a light-proof covering, the spell's effects are blocked until the covering is removed.

Daylight brought into an area of magical darkness (or vice versa) is temporarily negated, so that the otherwise prevailing light conditions exist in the overlapping areas of effect.

Daylight counters or dispels any darkness spell of equal or lower level, such as darkness.

Discern Lies
Divination 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - No Clr 4, Nobility 4, Pal 3 V, S, DF
Concentration, up to 1 round/level Close 6 hours
Targets: One creature/level, no two of which can be more than 30 ft. apart

Reveals deliberate falsehoods.

Each round, you concentrate on one target, who must be within range. You know if the target deliberately and knowingly speaks a lie by discerning disturbances in its aura caused by lying. The spell does not reveal the truth, uncover unintentional inaccuracies, or necessarily reveal evasions.

Each round, you may concentrate on a different target.

Dispel Magic
Abjuration 1 standard action PRPG-O
None - No Brd 3, Clr 3, Drd 4, Magic 3, Pal 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S
Instant Medium General
Target or Area: One spellcaster, creature, or object

Cancels one magical spell or effect.

You can use dispel magic to end one ongoing spell that has been cast on a creature or object, to temporarily suppress the magical abilities of a magic item, or to counter another spellcaster's spell. A dispelled spell ends as if its duration had expired. Some spells, as detailed in their descriptions, can't be defeated by dispel magic . Dispel magic can dispel (but not counter) spell-like effects just as it does spells. The effect of a spell with an instantaneous duration can't be dispelled, because the magical effect is already over before the dispel magic can take effect.

You choose to use dispel magic in one of two ways: a targeted dispel or a counterspell.

Targeted Dispel : One object, creature, or spell is the target of the dispel magic spell. You make one dispel check (1d20 + your caster level) and compare that to the spell with highest caster level (DC = 11 + the spell's caster level). If successful, that spell ends. If not, compare the same result to the spell with the next highest caster level. Repeat this process until you have dispelled one spell affecting the target, or you have failed to dispel every spell.

For example, a 7th-level caster casts dispel magic, targeting a creature affected by stoneskin (caster level 12th) and fly (caster level 6th). The caster level check results in a 19. This check is not high enough to end the stoneskin (which would have required a 23 or higher), but it is high enough to end the fly (which only required a 17). Had the dispel check resulted in a 23 or higher, the stoneskin would have been dispelled, leaving the fly intact. Had the dispel check been a 16 or less, no spells would have been affected.

You can also use a targeted dispel to specifically end one spell affecting the target or one spell affecting an area (such as a wall of fire ). You must name the specific spell effect to be targeted in this way. If your caster level check is equal to or higher than the DC of that spell, it ends. No other spells or effects on the target are dispelled if your check is not high enough to end the targeted effect.

If you target an object or creature that is the effect of an ongoing spell (such as a monster summoned by summon monster ), you make a dispel check to end the spell that conjured the object or creature.

If the object that you target is a magic item, you make a dispel check against the item's caster level (DC = 11 + the item's caster level). If you succeed, all the item's magical properties are suppressed for 1d4 rounds, after which the item recovers its magical properties. A suppressed item becomes nonmagical for the duration of the effect. An interdimensional opening (such as a bag of holding ) is temporarily closed. A magic item's physical properties are unchanged: A suppressed magic sword is still a sword (a masterwork sword, in fact). Artifacts and deities are unaffected by mortal magic such as this.

You automatically succeed on your dispel check against any spell that you cast yourself.

Counterspell : When dispel magic is used in this way, the spell targets a spellcaster and is cast as a counterspell. Unlike a true counterspell, however, dispel magic may not work; you must make a dispel check to counter the other spellcaster's spell.

Heal Mount
Conjuration (Healing) 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (harmless) - Yes (harmless) Pal 3 V, S
Instant Touch General
Target: Your mount touched

As heal on horse or other special mount.

This spell functions like heal but it affects only the paladin's special mount (typically a horse).

Magic Circle against Chaos
Abjuration [Lawful] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (harmless) - No; see text Clr 3, Law 3, Pal 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M/DF
10 min./level Touch 4 hours
Area: 10-ft.-radius emanation from touched creature

As protection spells, but 10-ft. radius and 10 min./level.

This spell functions like magic circle against evilexcept that it is similar to protection from chaos instead of protection from evil, and it can imprison a nonlawful called creature.

Magic Circle against Evil
Abjuration [Good] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (harmless) - No; see text Clr 3, Good 3, Pal 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M/DF
10 min./level Touch 4 hours
Area: 10-ft.-radius emanation from touched creature

As protection from chaos, but 10-ft. radius and 10 min./level.

All creatures within the area gain the effects of a protection from evil spell, and evil summoned creatures cannot enter the area either. Creatures in the area, or who later enter the area, receive only one attempt to suppress effects that are controlling them. If successful, such effects are suppressed as long as they remain in the area. Creatures that leave the area and come back are not protected. You must overcome a creature's spell resistance in order to keep it at bay (as in the third function of protection from evil ), but the deflection and resistance bonuses and the protection from mental control apply regardless of enemies' spell resistance.

This spell has an alternative version that you may choose when casting it. A magic circle against evil can be focused inward rather than outward. When focused inward, the spell binds a nongood called creature (such as those called by the lesser planar binding and greater planar binding spells) for a maximum of 24 hours per caster level, provided that you cast the spell that calls the creature within 1 round of casting the magic circle . The creature cannot cross the circle's boundaries. If a creature too large to fit into the spell's area is the subject of the spell, the spell acts as a normal protection from evil spell for that creature only.

A magic circle leaves much to be desired as a trap. If the circle of powdered silver laid down in the process of spellcasting is broken, the effect immediately ends. The trapped creature can do nothing that disturbs the circle, directly or indirectly, but other creatures can. If the called creature has spell resistance, it can test the trap once a day. If you fail to overcome its spell resistance, the creature breaks free, destroying the circle. A creature capable of any form of dimensional travel (astral projection and similar abilities) can simply leave the circle through such means. You can prevent the creature's extradimensional escape by casting a dimensional anchor spell on it, but you must cast the spell before the creature acts. If you are successful, the anchor effect lasts as long as the magic circle does. The creature cannot reach across the magic circle, but its ranged attacks (ranged weapons, spells, magical abilities, and the like) can. The creature can attack any target it can reach with its ranged attacks except for the circle itself.

You can add a special diagram (a two-dimensional bounded figure with no gaps along its circumference, augmented with various magical sigils) to make the magic circle more secure. Drawing the diagram by hand takes 10 minutes and requires a DC 20 Spellcraft check. You do not know the result of this check. If the check fails, the diagram is ineffective. You can take 10 when drawing the diagram if you are under no particular time pressure to complete the task. This task also takes 10 full minutes. If time is no factor at all, and you devote 3 hours and 20 minutes to the task, you can take 20.

A successful diagram allows you to cast a dimensional anchor spell on the magic circle during the round before casting any summoning spell. The anchor holds any called creatures in the magic circle for 24 hours per caster level. A creature cannot use its spell resistance against a magic circle prepared with a diagram, and none of its abilities or attacks can cross the diagram. If the creature tries a Charisma check to break free of the trap (see the lesser planar binding spell), the DC increases by 5. The creature is immediately released if anything disturbs the diagram—even a straw laid across it. The creature itself cannot disturb the diagram either directly or indirectly, as noted above.

This spell is not cumulative with protection from evil and vice versa.

Greater Magic Weapon
Transmutation 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (harmless, object) - Yes (harmless, object) Clr 4, Pal 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M/DF
1 hour/level Close 6 hours
Target: One weapon or 50 projectiles (all of which must be together at the time of casting)

Weapon gains +1 bonus/four levels (max +5).

Magic weapon gives a weapon a +1 enhancement bonus on attack and damage rolls. An enhancement bonus does not stack with a masterwork weapon's +1 bonus on attack rolls.

You can't cast this spell on a natural weapon, such as an unarmed strike (instead, see magic fang). A monk's unarmed strike is considered a weapon, and thus it can be enhanced by this spell.

This spell functions like magic weaponexcept that it gives a weapon an enhancement bonus on attack and damage rolls of +1 per four caster levels (maximum +5). This bonus does not allow a weapon to bypass damage reduction aside from magic.

Alternatively, you can affect as many as 50 arrows, bolts, or bullets. The projectiles must be of the same kind, and they have to be together (in the same quiver or other container). Projectiles, but not thrown weapons, lose their transmutation after they are used. Treat shuriken as projectiles, rather than as thrown weapons, for the purpose of this spell.

Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
None - Yes Clr 3, Community 3, Pal 3 V, S, DF
1 round/level 40 ft. 5 minutes
Area: All allies and foes within a 40-ft.-radius burst centered on you

Allies get +1 bonus on most rolls, enemies 1 penalty.

You bring special favor upon yourself and your allies while bringing disfavor to your enemies. You and each of your allies gain a +1 luck bonus on attack rolls, weapon damage rolls, saves, and skill checks, while each of your foes takes a –1 penalty on such rolls.

Remove Blindness/Deafness
Conjuration (Healing) 1 standard action PRPG-O
Fortitude negates (harmless) - Yes (harmless) Clr 3, Pal 3 V, S
Instant Touch General
Target: Creature touched

Cures normal or magical blindness or deafness.

Remove blindness/deafness cures blindness or deafness (your choice), whether the effect is normal or magical in nature. The spell does not restore ears or eyes that have been lost, but it repairs them if they are damaged.

Remove blindness/deafness counters and dispels blindness/deafness .

Remove Curse
Abjuration 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (harmless) - Yes (harmless) Adp 3, Brd 3, Clr 3, Liberation 3, Pal 3, Sor/Wiz 4 V, S
Instant Touch General
Target: Creature or object touched

Frees object or person from curse.

Remove curse can remove all curses on an object or a creature. If the target is a creature, you must make a caster level check (1d20 + caster level) against the DC of each curse affecting the target. Success means that the curse is removed. Remove curse does not remove the curse from a cursed shield, weapon, or suit of armor, although a successful caster level check enables the creature afflicted with any such cursed item to remove and get rid of it.

Remove curse counters and dispels bestow curse .
