Campaign Design - Spells: Chastise

Chastise (from Gods)

Level: Cleric/Favored Soul 0
Components: V, S, F
Casting Time: 1 hour
Range: 15 feet
Target, Effect, or Area: See below
Duration: 1 day
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: No

This spell involves several participants shouting at and beating depictions, icons, and holy symbols of a god with weapons as punishment to the god for failing their servants. While in most cases this is simple brutality or misdirection, this spell provides some small evidence of success in their actions for the next day after the beating: Each participant receives a competence bonus equal to his Wisdom modifier on the first Concentration check made within the next twenty-four hours.

Most clerics aware of this spell actively frown upon its use, saying it is disrespectful of the gods. For the gods' part, few deities tolerate such abuses for long. Those who rely overly upon this spell may find that their divine patrons withdraw support at the most inopportune time.

Focus: The depictions, icons, and holy symbols of the god being chastised.
