Highlights[edit]

<- How and why this build works ->

Munchkin-Size Me[edit]

<- Take it to the next level ->

Instead of taking levels in straight cleric, after you've maxed out master of radiance, why not take the "radiant servant of pelor" if you have the prerequisites. You don't lose any caster levels or undead turning levels, so its as if you never stopped filling up cleric. Also the radiant servant has extra greater turnings, positive energy burst, and maxed out healing spells from the domain. (cure spells are inflict spells towards undead)

Side Notes[edit]

Limitations[edit]

<- conditions of when this build works ->

DM Counters[edit]

1) Living evil clerics to buff undead beyond turn-ability

2) waves upon waves of undead

3) constructs
