|Level:||Clr 7, Good 7|
|Casting Time:||1 standard action|
|Area:||Nongood creatures in a 40-ft.-radius spread centered on you|
|Saving Throw:||None or Will negates; see text|
Any nongood creature within the area that hears the holy word suffers the following ill effects.
|Equal to caster level||Deafened|
|Up to caster level -1||Blinded, deafened|
|Up to caster level -5||Paralyzed, blinded, deafened|
|Up to caster level -10||Killed, paralyzed, blinded, deafened|
The effects are cumulative and concurrent. No saving throw is allowed against these effects.
The creature is deafened for 1d4 rounds.
The creature is blinded for 2d4 rounds.
Furthermore, if you are on your home plane when you cast this spell, nongood extraplanar creatures within the area are instantly banished back to their home planes. Creatures so banished cannot return for at least 24 hours. This effect takes place regardless of whether the creatures hear the holy word. The banishment effect allows a Will save (at a -4 penalty) to negate.
Creatures whose HD exceed your caster level are unaffected by holy word.
