Beneath the Borderlands
Range: 30 ft
Duration: 10 minutes against an item
This spell affects only evil magic. Dispel Evil functions (temporarily) against evil “sendings,” possibly including dreams or supernatural hunting-beasts. The power of an evil magic item is held in abeyance for 10 minutes rather than being permanently dispelled. Evil spells are completely destroyed.
The chance of successfully dispelling evil is a percentage based on the ratio of the level of the dispelling caster over the level of original caster (or HD of the monster). Thus, a 6th level Cleric attempting to dispel an evil charm cast by a 12th level Cleric has a 50% chance of success (6/12 = 1/2, or, 50%). If the 12th level Cleric were dispelling the 6th level Cleric’s charm, the chance would be 200% (12/6 = 2, or, 200%).
