Protection from good was an abjuration spell that created an aura around the target that shielded against mental and physical attacks by good creatures.[2][12][13][14] The reverse of this spell, protection from evil, had identical effects on evil creatures.[12][13][14]

Effects[edit | edit source]

This spell functioned exactly like protection from evil except the bonuses and benefits applied to attacks from good creatures.[2][12][13][14]

Components[edit | edit source]

In addition to verbal and somatic components, the caster had to draw a 3 ft (91 cm) circle around the recipient using powdered silver for the newest version of the spell.[2] See the description of the components for the reversible version of this spell at protection from evil.

History[edit | edit source]

The arcane version of the protection from good spell was an invention of Netherese arcanist M'dhal from the year 2745 NY (−1114 DR). The original name of the non-reversed form was M'dahl's dispel evil.[1]
