It's me again with my cleric domain spleen...

I want to have the four seasons as domains.
Got all spells listed, but now I need granted powers.

Background Info (again):
IMC clerics don't get Turn Undead for free,
but only the GP of their domains.

Summer:
Some light and heat effect...
Maybe like the spell Daylight with additional resistance
10/cold granted in it's area (to everybody, friend and foe).

Duration 10 min./level seems too much.
How about 10 min. for each use and usable 3 + Cha mod per day?

Winter:
Darkness and cold of course, so:
Like the spell Deeper Darkness plus resistance 10/fire.

Duration etc. as above.

Spring and Autumn:
No good idea so far...

Now that there are Divine feats, which let a cleric convert a turn usage into
some other effect, this is really bad for non-turning clerics. You should at
least convert "turn undead" into "special power" or some such -- and think
about an appropriate "special power" for non-turning domains.

This would make a good "special power" as outlined above, but you'd still need
a granted power.

I don't know about where you live, but here it seems to rain a lot in those
seasons -- or maybe we just notice it more than in the summer.

Riffing:

Spring
- get plants as animal companions
- water
- bonuses to growing plant spells, such as entangle
- animate plant/awaken plant

Autumn
- hold
- sleep
- paralysis
- ghosts/speak with dead
- see the unseen
- the spirits move

Generally you want resistances to what the environment would be, so
should be 10/fire (or heat or whatever)

That's another way to look at it.

I see the cleric evoking the power of the domain in a way that makes
the area more summerly. It's a display of summer's power, so that cold
(winter's power) is weakened / has less influence on people.

A third possibility for a Summer GP would be the causing of heat/fire
damage in the area (should be cone-shaped instead of sperical and
centered on the cleric). But that's more fitting for Sun or Fire IMO.
