At 3rd level, the priest can cast Faerie Fire once per day. Other special spells include: Sunrise once per day starting at 5th level, Boon of Lathander once per day at 7th level and False Dawn once per day at 9th level.

Description: Morninglords dress in bright, long sleeved robes of yellow, red, and pink. A sunburst headpiece is worn toward the back of the head to appear as a rising sun. Adventuring clerics usually wear more useful garb, but none the less prefer reds and yellows, to the point of tinting their armors that color.
Morninglords turn undead creatures at four levels higher than their listed level if the undead is affected by direct sunlight. Intelligent undead such as vampires know about Lathanderian specialty priests and either avoid direct conflict or act to remove the threat they pose as quickly as possible.
Morninglords convey a +10% bonus for the resurrection survival score of any beings, upon which they cast raise dead or resurrection (the Resurrection survival score cannot, however, exceed 99%).
