Paladin Spells Prepared (CL 17th; concentration +20)


Before Combat The paladin casts delay poison and protection from energy (electricity and fire) on herself, and greater magic weapon on her greatsword.

During Combat The paladin targets the most powerful creature present or an obviously demonic target. She uses her divine bond to add the brilliant energy, holy, keen, and speed special abilities to her greatsword as appropriate, and uses mercies to counteract any negative conditions or afflictions she gains.
