Unhallow makes a particular site, building, or structure an
unholy site. This has three major effects.
First, the site or structure is guarded by a magic circle
against good effect.
Second, all turning checks to turn undead suffer a 4
profane penalty and turning checks to rebuke undead gain a +4
profane bonus. Spell resistance does not apply to this effect.
(Note: This provision does not apply to the druid version of the
Finally, the character may choose to fix a single spell effect
to the unhallow site. The spell effect lasts for one year and
functions throughout the entire consecrated site, regardless of
its normal duration and area or effect. The character may
designate whether the effect applies to all creatures, creatures
who share the character's faith or alignment, or creatures who
adhere to another faith or alignment. For example, the character
may create a bless effect that aids all creatures of like
alignment or faith in the area, or a curse effect that hinders
creatures of the opposite alignment or an enemy faith. At the end
of the year, the chosen effect lapses, but it can be renewed or
replaced simply by casting unhallow again.
Spell effects that may be tied to an unhallow site include
aid, bane, bless, cause fear, darkness, daylight, deeper
darkness, detect magic, detect good, dimensional anchor, discern
lies, dispel magic, endure elements, freedom of movement,
invisibility purge, negative energy protection, protection from
elements, remove fear, resist elements, silence, tongues, and
zone of truth. Spell resistance might apply to these spells
effects. (See the individual spell descriptions for details.)
An area can receive only one unhallow (and its associated
spell effect) at a time.
Unhallow counters and dispels hallow.
