By reciting a sacred passage or declaration, the priest invokes his deity’s blessing upon himself and his allies, while causing confusion and weakness among his enemies. All creatures within the area of effect at the instant of the spell’s completion are affected. Allies of the priest gain a +2 bonus to attack rolls, damage rolls, skill checks and saving throws, or a +3 bonus if they are of the same faith as the caster. Enemies suffer a -2 to the same.
After the recitation, the priest is free to take further actions during the spell’s duration as he sees fit – he need not concentrate to maintain the spell. As a result, it is possible for the priest to cast a prayer spell, which would increase the bonus and penalty to +3 and -3 respectively (or +4 for those of the same faith).
