"Guardian of Tirisfal" is an acquired template that may be added to any humanoid or monstrous humanoid (referred to hereafter as the "base creature"). The Guardian of Tirisfal uses all of the base creature's statistics and special abilities except as noted here.
Special Attacks: A Guardian of Tirisfal retains all the special attacks of the base creature and gains the following.
Banishing Strike (Su): At will, a Guardian of Tirisfal can make a melee touch attack against a demon with one normal attack. On a successful hit, the target must make a Will save (DC 10 + half the Guardian's character level or HD + the Guardian's Charisma modifier) or be banished instantly from the plane of Azeroth. Spell resistance does not function against a banishing strike.
Smite Outsider (Su): A Guardian of Tirisfal adds his Charisma bonus (if any) to all attacks and melee damage rolls made against outsiders.
Special Qualities: A Guardian of Tirisfal retains all the special qualities of the base creature and gains the following. If the base creature already has one or more of these special qualities, use the better value.
Ageless (Ex): A Guardian of Tirisfal stops aging. He does not take penalties to his ability scores for aging and cannot be magically aged. Any such penalties that he has already taken, however, remain in place. Bonuses still accrue.
Contact Other Plane (Su): Once per day, a Guardian of Tirisfal with 2 or more character levels can cast contact other plane as a sorcerer of his character level, but he can contact only a being sympathetic to the cause of slaying demons.
Note that contacting an Eternal is the same as an Outer Plane demigod for the purpose of using this ability. There are no beings generally more powerful than Eternals in the Warcraft universe, so making contact with a "lesser deity" or anything more powerful than a demigod is impossible.
Detect Outsiders (Su): At will, a Guardian of Tirisfal can detect demonic creatures exactly as with the detect undead spell, except that it focuses upon the presence of demons and other outsiders.
Distant Sight (Su): A Guardian of Tirisfal can cast clairaudience/clairvoyance a number of times per day equal to his Charisma bonus (if any) as a sorcerer of his character level, but he can hear and see the destination rather than needing to choose between hearing or seeing.
Divine Grace (Ex): A Guardian of Tirisfal gains the divine grace ability, like a paladin warrior, if he does not already have it.
Guardian Immunities (Ex): A Guardian of Tirisfal is immune to disease, all mind-affecting effects (charms, compulsions, phantasms, patterns and morale effects), poison and sleep effects.
Locate Creature (Su): At will, a Guardian of Tirisfal can cast locate creature as a sorcerer of his caster level to locate outsiders or a specific demon he has previously encountered.
Speak Eredun (Ex): A Guardian of Tirisfal can understand and speak Eredun. He is not subject
to the insanity such knowledge can cause to non-evil characters.
Spell Resistance (Ex): A Guardian of Tirisfal has spell resistance 5 + character level (max 25).
Telepathy (Su): A Guardian of Tirisfal can communicate with any creature within 100 feet with which he shares a language.
Vision (Su): At will, a Guardian ofTirisfal can cast vision as a sorcerer of his character level, but only receives information specific to demonic influences.
Abilities: Increase from the base creature as follows: Int +2, Wis +2, Cha +4.
Organization: There can be only one Guardian of Tirisfal at a time. Challenge Rating: Same as the base creature + 1. Treasure: A Guardian of Tirisfal is usually gifted several magic items by the archmages who imbue his power. The specific items are different with each Guardian of Tirisfal.
Alignment: Must be lawful good or lawful neutral at the time of the ceremony. The creature does not lose the template's features if its alignment changes after they have already been applied. Level Adjustment: Same as the base creature +2.
