I am confused as to what spells exactly clerics are and are not allowed to cast.
What I do understand for spell descriptors
- Good VS Evil
- Lawful VS Chaotic
Chaotic, Evil, Good, and Lawful Spells A cleric can't cast spells of an alignment opposed to her own or her deity's (if she has one). Spells associated with particular alignments are indicated by the chaotic, evil, good, and lawful descriptors in their spell descriptions.
What I do not understand is the other descriptors. For instance the spell Slay Living is a necromancy [death] spell, but its not an alignment spell. So would a Lawful/Neutral/Chaotic Good cleric be allowed to cast it? Or is death a descriptor thats "evil"?
