As you spend 1 minute to cast this spell, you infuse an area with holy (or unholy) energy for the duration. The area is a cylinder that is twice as big as normal centered on a point on the ground that you can see within 18 meters. Glowing runes appear wherever the cylinder intersects with the floor or other surface. Choose one of the following types of creatures: celestials, elementals, fey, fiends, or undead. The circle affects a creature of the chosen type in the following ways:
- The creature can’t willingly enter the cylinder by nonmagical means. If the creature tries to use teleportation or interplanar travel to do so, it must first succeed on a Will saving throw.
- The creature has disadvantage on attack rolls against targets within the cylinder.
- Targets within the cylinder can’t be charmed, frightened, or possessed by the creature and any creature charmed, frightened, or possessed by the creature is no longer charmed, frightened, or possessed upon entering the area.
When you cast this spell, you can elect to cause its magic to operate in the reverse direction, preventing a creature of the specified type from leaving the cylinder and protecting targets outside it.
You can expend 1 additional mana or psi to affect all celestials, elementals, fey, fiends, and undead.
You can expend 1 additional mana, increase the casting time to 24 hours, and expend materials equal to 500 sp to infuse the area with holy (or unholy) power until the spell is dispelled and increase the cylinder’s radius up to 18 meters. The spell fails if the radius includes an area already under the effect a hallow spell.
You can expend 1 additional mana or psi to bind an extra effect to the area. Choose the effect from the following list, or choose an effect offered by the GM. Some of these effects apply to creatures in the area; you can designate whether the effect applies to all creatures, creatures that follow a specific deity or leader, or creatures of a specific sort, such as orcs or trolls. When a creature that would be affected enters the spell’s area for the first time on a turn or starts its turn there, it can make a Will saving throw.
On a successful save, the creature ignores the extra effect until it leaves the area.

Darkness. Darkness fills the area. Normal light, as well as magical light created by spells using less mana or psi than you used to cast this spell, can’t illuminate the area.

Extradimensional Interference. Affected creatures can’t move or travel using teleportation or by extradimensional or interplanar means.
