By casting this spell, divine power is brought to bear to help the caster dominate his foes through strength (and strife). To complete the spell, the caster brandishes a metal gauntlet and throws it on the ground, a symbol of his domination and a challenge to any that oppose him. For the duration of the spell, the caster gains a powerful divine aid. Any creature that seeks to strike the caster in melee combat must make a will save or hesitate, allowing the caster a bonus attack of opportunity. If the caster chooses to take advantage of the opportunity to attack, it does not count against his limit.
For the duration of the spell, whenever the caster makes any kind of melee attack (including attacks of opportunity, or bonus AoO), he does so with effective 2 to hit and +2 damage).
The divine focus for this spell is a holy symbol, and the material component is a metal gauntlet which is thrown to the ground, but not necessarily consumed or destroyed in the casting.
