Perhaps no light shines with more power or is more intense than the light of the elemental planes itself. With this spell, the caster summons a portion of this otherworldly light to weaken and inflict damage upon undead and powerful outsiders. All undead creatures and two additional subtypes of outsiders suffer 1d3 points of radiant damage per caster level (maximum 25d3). Those creatures that have a particular vulnerability to sunlight takes half again as much (+50%) damage, based on the type of creature you’re affecting. The spell also inflicts a secondary effect based on the type of creature affected:

  • One Subtype: Inflicts the blindness condition
  • Second Subtype Inflicts the exhausted condition
  • Undead: Turned (as if by a successful use of turn undead)

A successful Reflex save results in half damage and negates the secondary effect.
