So, miracle. 5,000 XP, are you kidding me? I would think if you requested Pelor to Sink the ToEE 50 miles into the earth's crust, he wouldn't be adverse to that. Miracle (Evocation) Level: Clr 9, Luck 9 Components: V, S, XP; see text Casting time: 1 standard action Range: See text Target, Effect or Area: See text Duration: See text Saving Throw: See text Spell Resistance: Yes You don’t so much cast a miracle as request one. You state what you would like to have happen and request that your deity (or the power you pray to for spells) intercede. A miracle can do any of the following things. * Duplicate any cleric spell of 8th level or lower (including spells to which you have access because of your domains). * Duplicate any other spell of 7th level or lower. * Undo the harmful effects of certain spells, such as feeblemind or insanity. * Have any effect whose power level is in line with the above effects. If the miracle has any of the above effects, casting it has no experience point cost. Alternatively, a cleric can make a very powerful request. Casting such a miracle costs the cleric 5,000 XP because of the powerful divine energies involved. Examples of especially powerful miracles of this sort could include the following. * Swinging the tide of a battle in your favor by raising fallen allies to continue fighting. * Moving you and your allies, with all your and their gear, from one plane to another through planar barriers to a specific locale with no chance of error. * Protecting a city from an earthquake, volcanic eruption, flood, or other major natural disaster. In any event, a request that is out of line with the deity’s (or alignment’s) nature is refused. A duplicated spell allows saving throws and spell resistance as normal, but the save DCs are as for a 9th-level spell. When a miracle duplicates a spell that has an XP cost, you must pay that cost. When a miracle spell duplicates a spell with a material component that costs more than 100 gp, you must provide that component. XP Cost: 5,000 XP (for some uses of the miracle spell; see above).
