The Paladin glows brightly as he becomes the sanctioned target of his foes. All creatures and non-grouped characters in the area are subject to a warding roll and if they fail, will only target the Paladin and not other characters when attacking. The Paladin also will ignore Force on Force mechanics for at least one additional target, the number of targets increasing based on Spiritual Lore, Blessings.

Lore Benefits

Nullifies an additional target's Force on Force effect for every seed 10 summation of Spiritual Lore, Blessings ranks while under this effect.

Tactics

Beacon of Courage may be used as a protective effect for all other characters in the area. A paladin's friends might be incapacitated or otherwise likely to suffer serious damage from further attacks, which this spell can prevent.
