Cast a Spell Tuesday - Blessing Upon Spirits, Farmer’s Spell & Purge All Disguise

With a touch and a few devout prayers, you transform ordinary beer, liquor or wine into sacramental spirits. Sacramental spirits act as Holy Water (see the Pathfinder RPG page 160) but always inflict maximum damage (8 points) to undead and evil outsiders.

Farmhands with a middling talent for magic or enough faith to call upon the gods for everyday miracles use this spell to keep their livestock healthy and content. When this spell is cast, you restore 1 Hit Point to an animal that must have been lost within the last 5 minutes. This spell has no effect on older wounds. Additionally, the touched animal receives an additional FORT Save to overcome any disease or poison currently afflicting it.

Purge All Disguise
School transmutation Level Bard 1, Sorcerer/Wizard 2
Casting Time 1 standard action
Component V, S
Range 20 ft burst centered on the caster
Duration Instant
Saving Throw FORT DC 18 negates

When this spell is cast, a howling wave of white and yellow energy bursts forth from the caster’s eyes and hands, shredding disguises, ripping way wigs and veils and blasting away makeup with a stinging slap. The end result is truth, seeing creatures as they truly are.

This spell destroys any mundane disguise, removing any circumstance or equipment bonuses to Disguise checks for all creatures within range. This spell has no effect on magical or Psionic illusions nor upon shape changers.
