When cast, the target of Templar's Verdict is subject to a warding roll. If the target fails to ward off the spell, they will take minor/moderate plasma damage and receive a 30 second debuff of -5 DS/-3 TD/-5 SMRv2.

Subsequent attack, casting, or combat maneuver misses from the Paladin toward the target cause the target to ward against the spell again and, upon failure, receive damage and another stack of the debuff. This effect can trigger a base of 3 times, increased with Spiritual Lore, Summoning.

Killing a target under the effects of the spell causes the Paladin to become Zealous, causing their next successful attack within 60 seconds to always trigger a Guiding Light flare.


Lore Benefits

Spiritual Lore, Summoning increases the number of times the debuff effect can trigger per target on an attack/cast/maneuver miss. Further details of this lore benefit are pending.
