A crown of divine energy appears upon the
target’s brow. The holy symbol of the caster’s
faith is set at the front of the crown.

You create a magic crown infused with
divine energy harmful to enemies of
your faith. Choose a single alignment
(chaotic, evil, good, or lawful) when
you cast this spell. Once per minute,
the crown’s wearer gains a +2 divine
bonus on damage rolls on his next
melee or ranged attack if his target
has the designated alignment. The
crown’s wearer must decide to use
this extra damage before making his
attack. If he misses, the extra damage
is lost.

As an immediate action, the creature
wearing a crown of smiting can discharge
its magic to gain a +8 divine bonus on
damage on a single attack. The spell
ends after the wearer uses the crown
in this manner.

The crown occupies space on the
body as a headband, hat, or helm. If the
crown is removed, the spell immediately

Focus: A silver hoop 6 inches in
diameter costing 25 gp.
