Could someone please explain to me, in simple words, what the following means?

1st innate of a mantic Repel Supernatural Evil - as per the paladinic ability to repel evil - but will only work on evil supernatural creatures such as demons and undead.

Cheers y'all xx

As per the paladin ability repel evil, ie forced back 10 feet, onlu works on supernatural evil creatures, such as demons or undead... it is mantic so works on beings with a spirit or magically, or mantic only beings.

Supernatural means they are no just evil humans but a being supernatural in its evil source, such as an undead which is an evil spirit from another plane in a host body. Or demons which come from other planes etc.

Okay, so where does 1st innate come into it? And is it like a magnet that's just there all the time, or do you have to cast it? If the latter, how much does it cost?

(Sorry, blonde at work.)

I don't have an almanac to hand - but with regards to the 1st innate - I imagine it's because you can pick up the 2nd innate on a higher Tier.

Repel Evil is not permantly on like a magnet (in this case), so needs to be 'cast' although being a guild ability it costs 0 life.

You have a single use of it which you need to activate, it has no verbal but you desclare it as "Repel (Supernatural) Evil"

So it goes out like a wave and repels all of the supernatural evil thingies - do they then all turn round and come back at me again, or do they stay repelled for a couple of minutes or something?

Sorry to be dim, I just find it easier to get my head around all this before I wind up in a situation where I need it and suddenly realise I have no idea what it does! Huge thanks all round.

They go away and can come right back.

It's generally good to buy yourself a few seconds for a warrior to get there/draw a prot or to save someone from a demon creeping up behind.

I tend to save it either for saving someone else who hasn't noticed they are about to be jumped (as Tiffer said) or as a last line of 'oh my god I'm about to die' type get out.

The paladinic ability can only be used to help others though that might have been removed since the handbook got re written.

Think of it as a sudden pulse of mantic power that throws evil things back ten foot. They can then come back at you, but it buys you time.
