You reduce the target creature's ability to tap into a single energy type (acid, cold, electricity, fire, or sonic) of your choice. This reduces damage of the selected type the creature deals with spells, spell-like abilities, and supernatural abilities by 10 points.
If a creature successfully takes the item targeted by this spell while you are holding, wearing, or wielding it, the creature must attempt a Will save. If the creature fails its save, it becomes fatigued, and it must attempt a new saving throw at the end of its turn every round it does not return the item to you.
The target creature's innate goodness infuses its body with holy energy. While this energy does not directly empower the target, it can harm embodiments of evil. Any creature that damages the target with a slashing or piercing melee weapon is sprayed by the target's holy blood. If the attacker is a creature with the evil subtype, it takes 1d6 points of damage from divine power each time it successfully hits the target. If the target has the good subtype or an ability that grants it an aura of good (like paladins or some clerics), its blood instead deals 2d6 points of damage.
You can cast this spell only if it is the first action you take on your turn. In a burst of shadowy feathers, you turn into a Tiny blurred shape reminiscent of a black raven until the beginning of your next turn.
If you succeed at a ranged touch attack, you burn your handprint onto the flesh of a creature, dealing 1d6 points of acid damage and when it is within 60 feet of you, cursing it with a -2 penalty to AC against your attacks and on saving throws to resist any spell you cast or spell-like ability you use. Additionally, each day the target remains cursed, more and more of its flesh becomes covered in reptilian scales.
Touched shield grants wielder SR 10 + caster level against spells if it can be interposed between the wielder and the spell effect (not against AOE spells such as fireball, but does provide +5 bonus to Reflex saving throws against such spells.)
You gain a deflection bonus to AC vs. attacks from creatures with a neutral component to their alignment, you may banish such creatures, and you automatically dispel any one enchantment spell cast by such a creature.
