  • Paralyzed The creature is paralyzed and helpless for 1d10 minutes.
  • Killed Living creatures die. undead creatures are destroyed.

Furthermore, if you are on your home plane when you cast this spell, nonlawful extraplanar creatures within the area are instantly banished back to their home planes.

The banishment effect allows a Will save (at a -4 penalty) to negate.

Creatures whose HD exceed your caster level are unaffected by dictum.
