TACTICS

Every day, he wards the complex by casting alarm and guards and wards. He also casts nondetection, extended magic vestment, and extended greater magic weapon every day after finishing his daily prayers. If he has time just before combat begins (he should due to his alarms), he casts stoneskin, spell resistance, freedom of movement, bull’s strength, and bear’s endurance on himself – all of these effects are calculated in his stat block.

In combat, the his strength is in his magic. In the first 2 rounds of combat, he uses his instant summons ability to first cast summon monster VI and then summon monster V as free actions (summoning 1d3 shadow mastiffs on round 1 and a barghest on round 2). While these summoned monsters engage his foes, he casts righteous might and then divine power. On round 3, he casts quickened divine favor and then enters combat, casting quickened spiritual weapon on round 4 to attack a spellcaster or healer. He dimension doors to a safe area in his complex if brought below 10 hit points, then hides inside his lair and waits for his fast healing to fix him up before returning to continue a fight with intruders. If confronted in his lair, he fights to the death. Note that the fact that his domain is warded and the fact that he bound to it define the encounter!
