Yule (Darkness)

Associated Domain: Darkness

Replacement Power: The following granted power replaces the eyes of darkness power of the Darkness domain.

Adjust Illumination (Su): At 6th level, you can change the level of lighting within a 60-foot radius area centered on you as a standard action. You may change the lighting conditions in the area by one step in either direction along the continuum of lighting (bright light, normal light, dim light, darkness); this effect works even in magically- generated areas of light and darkness, and persists for a number of rounds equal to your cleric level; these rounds do not need to be consecutive, but only one such 60-foot radius area can be so affected at any given time. At 12th level, you can adjust lighting by up to 2 steps, and by up to 3 steps at 18th level.

Replacement Domain Spells: 1st—goodberry, 2nd—tree shape (evergreens only), 5th—heroes’ feast, 7th—joyful rapture, 9th—polar midnight.

A cleric of Yule embodies mirth and altruism. Devotees of the winter solstice revere this sacred time as a means of harnessing the powers of shadow, but also as a reminder that light and joy may yet return even to the deepest darkness and sorrows.
