Special Abilities

Spells Planetars cast divine spells as 16th-level clerics. They do not gain access to domains or other cleric abilities.

Planetars are the generals of celestial armies. A typical planetar stands 9 feet tall and weighs 500 pounds. They focus on combat and the destruction of evil; though they understand diplomacy, a planetar would rather lead the charge against an army of fiends than negotiate peace.
