Sanctuary: all opponents attempting to hit the designated target must save vs. spell or cannot strike the target. The spell ends when an attack is made by the target or they target a spell at someone in a harmful manner.

Touch of light: (Heal 1d6+2 OR cure paralysis) AND (compell hostility OR take on hostility on yourself)

Rites of the sun: +1 to hit, +1 to damage, Undead with lower HD than the target has levels must save vs. spell to attempt an attack. (shimmering light effect). Higher level undead (Mummies and up) are not affected. Spell affects the entire party. Spell lasts 12 turns.

Rebuke the night: Banish 2d8 HD of Boogeymen or Night Creatures (they are not killed and may return to haunt you. If channeled unto a single night creature, they must save vs. Death or die permanently.

Destroy the Abomination of Unlife: Destroys as many hit dice of undead as you have levels around you (weaker undead are affected first). If channeled onto a single (undead) target, the target must save vs. Death or be destroyed. The target recieves a +1 saving throw bonus for every level it is above you.

Ward off death: ally gains +3 on saving throws against death energy (not poison). If you are under the effect of this spell and you are killed by a death-ray, you do not dissolve into putrid powder, but your body stays intact. You are also immune to level drain while under the effect of this spell. The spell lasts 1 Turn.

Preservation: Binds the soul to the targets body. This spell does ‘prevent’ death in a manner that a dead character’s soul stays close to the body. As long as the body is not destroyed entirely, the parts that do survive can be raised from death with a suitable spell even when that spell would normally be ineffective. Lost body parts are lost forever and cannot be re-attached if they were lost while not under the effect of Preservation. Spell affects the entire party. Spell lasts 1 day per level.

Sunray: Channels the light of the sun onto a target in your visual range. The Ray deals 1d8 points of fire damage per level (save for half). You must stand in sunlight to use this spell (clouds are ok). Undead and Chaos creatures take double damage from a Sunray.

Romance of the dragon breaths: choose 2 energy types (electicity, acid, lightning, fire, ice) target suffers 4d8 damage of each. Save vs. spell for half.

Dawn: A lightsource of the intensity of the sun erupts nearby. Allies (living only), Elrath Priests and Crusaders are immune to all of the following effects: Undead must save vs. Death or be destroyed. On a successful save, they still take 6d8 damage. Living creatures must save vs. spell or be blinded for 2 turns. Every creature, wether living or undead, takes 1 damage per round as long as they are affected.
