Pact Magic Paladin Oath

The following oath can be taken by paladins with the oathbound paladin archetype. All oaths adhere to the guidelines presented in Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Ultimate Magic.

Oath Against Spirits

A paladin who selects this oath vows to destroy all traces of pact magic from the world, ridding it of its taint.

Intuit Spirit

At 1st level, the paladin gains the intuit spirit binder secret, using her paladin level as her effective pactmaker level. At 4th level, she also gains the analyze pact spirit binder secret.

This ability replaces detect evil.

Suppress Spirit (Su)

At 3rd level, whenever the paladin deals damage to the target of her smite evil, her attack also causes the major granted ability of her target’s highest-level spirit (if any) to become suppressed for 5 rounds. If the major granted ability of her target’s highest-level spirit is expended or already suppressed, this ability affects the major granted ability of her target’s next highest-level spirit, if any. A successful Will save prevents this effect (DC equals 10 + 1/2 the paladin’s level + the paladin’s Charisma modifier). A paladin may only attempt to suppress one granted ability per round in this manner, even if she hits with multiple smite attacks.

This ability replaces the paladin’s 3rd-level mercy.
