Glory of the martyr was a divine abjuration spell for paladins that granted a protective ward to multiple subjects, transferring some of their wounds to the spellcaster and healing them if the caster should die. Although created by Ilmater, the Crying God, and used by his faithful, the spell spread to paladins of other faiths.
The glory of the martyr spell functioned like an advanced version of the shield other spell, in that it worked on multiple recipients. Like shield other, it warded the recipients against harm and forged a mystical link between them and the caster, transferring half of their wounds to the caster.
