Only the holiest and strongest willed clerics can turn undead; lesser priests lack the faith and confidence necessary to drive away the unliving.
Forbiddance is a variant rule for D20 fantasy gaming, which can easily be included in modern magic and supernatural horror D20 Modern campaigns. Inspired by scenes in works like ‘Salem’s Lot and The Exorcist, Forbiddance adds a new layer of uncertainty and complexity to encounters with undead.
