Spell: Holy Transfixion

Holy Transfixion
Evocation (Good)
Level: Clr 3
Components: V, S, DF
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Medium (100 ft. + 10 ft./level)
Target: One creature (see below)
Duration: 1 round/level (D); see text
Saving Throw: Will negates; see text
Spell Resistance: Yes

This spell summons holy (positive) energy to form an enclosure that holds undead, creatures from the negative energy plane and creatures from the plane of shadow and makes them more vulnerable to other holy energies. The subject becomes paralyzed and freezes in place. It is aware and unhurt but cannot take any actions, even speech. Each round on its turn, the subject may attempt a new saving throw to end the effect, breaking out of the prison. (This is a full-round action that does not provoke attacks of opportunity.)
Creatures from the negative energy plane receive a -4 on their saving throws against the hold effect, while creatures from the plane of shadow (or any other creature with the minor negative energy trait) receive a +4.
Creatures so held receive a -2 on any saves against spells with the holy, light or positive energy descriptor while held in the holy transfixion. In addition clerics and paladins receive a +2 on their turning checks against creatures held by this spell.
A winged creature who is paralyzed cannot flap its wings and falls. A swimmer can’t swim and may drown.

Holy Transfixion, Mass
Evocation (Good)
Level: Clr 7
Targets: One or more creatures, no two of which can be more than 30 ft. apart

This spell functions like holy transfixion, except as noted above.
