Campaign Design - Spells: Hlín's Sacred Hearth

Hlín's Sacred Hearth (from the Book of the Righteous; originally Anwyn's Elysian Palace)

Level: Home 9
Components: V, S, DF, XP
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Touch
Target, Effect, or Area: Creature touched
Duration: Instantaneous
Saving Throw: Will negates
Spell Resistance: Yes

You move yourself and one other creature to the sacred hearth of Hlín in the Great Hall of the Heavens. You arrive by the hearth, where if the companion you brought with you is hostile, it is set upon by the Einherjar there (treat them as the equivalent of five Solars).

You may leave the sacred hearth and return to the spot where you left from at will. No mortal may safely reside in the Great Hall for more than 24 hours. The mortal vessel begins to deteriorate when too long in the presence of the divine.

Anyone spending eight or more hours by the sacred hearth is treated to splendid feasts and perfect restfulness. This has all the following effects:
  • All present are cured of any hurts, diseases, curses, and other deleterious magical or natural effects other than those directly placed upon them by a Celestial Lord or Demon Lord.
  • If the companion brought is dead, the hearth acts upon them as if a true resurrection was cast upon them to bring them back to life.
  • The Einherjar may be asked twenty question with yes or no answers, as per the commune spell, during the stay.
  • All divine spells are considered prepared after eight hours of rest by the hearth, without need for prayer or proper observance of "time of day".
  • For 12 hours after leaving the sacred hearth, all who ate and rested there are under the effect of a bless spell; they are also immune to magical fear and hopelessness.
There is a 1% chance that the caster will arrive by the sacred hearth while Hlín is tending it. In such cases, she may be granted an audience with the celestial. The DM must determine the effects of such an audience.

Experience point cost: 5,000 experience points.

Focus: The ash from the central hearth of a consecrated holy site of Hlín.
