Exalted Brand Of Absolution

Exalted Brand Of Absolution

Tier 2 Epic abjuration

Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Touch
Components: V, S, M (a jar of silver paint mixed with holy water)
Duration: Permanent

You make a melee spell attack against a creature you can reach. On a hit you brand the creature with a holy script written in the words of creation, the language of pure good. A branded target cannot lie or attempt to deceive others, deals half damage on its attacks, and at the end of each of its turns takes 6d12 radiant damage. On each of its turns, a branded creature can take an action to remove the effect by attempting a Charisma (Persuasion) ability check against your spell save DC, begging for mercy. On a success, the effect ends, and mythic creatures automatically succeed on this ability check. A creature that begs for mercy and takes no other actions takes no damage from the spell at the end of its turn, and Epic creatures that take no actions in this manner for 1 hour end the effect. Non-Epic creatures can end the effect by willingly changing their alignment to yours after begging for absolution for 24 hours.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell as a tier 3 Epic spell, an affected creature takes 6d12 additional radiant damage at the end of each of its turns.
