Bendarion: CN (good tendencie), deity of dancing and revels. Patron Deity of Bards

A legendary entertainer who performed to packed inns and full houses, Benjamin Darion took his lute and rapier with him on his many travels. Over the years, his reputation grew, and with it, his power. When he reached his 30th year, he stopped aging all together- the stories of his dashing good looks eternally freezing him in time.
When his natural lifespan should have been up, he found that his fame had spread so much the world literally wouldn't allow him to die. His fans had started to worship him at this point, with multiple generations devoting themselves to following him and spreading the word of his great skill and talent.
After many centuries of this worship, his life followed the only natural course of action it could. He became a divine- one of the named deities raised from the ranks of mortals. A face to the ideals the church of the Eight Pointed star described. He adopted the name Bendarion and named his greatest followers to be his high priests.

Drink up!
Level: Revelry 7
Components: V, S, M
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Close (25 ft+5ft/leve)
Target: 1 creature/level no two of which may be more than 30ft apart
Duration: 1 rd/level
Saving Throw: Fortitude Partial
Spell Resistance: Yes
This spell makes the targeted creatures feel as though they've just spent a night drinking in the tavern. Creatures failing a fortitude saving throw are staggered, those who succeed on the save are still nauseated.

Dance Party!
Level: Revelry 8
Components: V, S, M
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Close (25 ft+5ft/leve)
Target: 1 creature/level no two of which may be more than 30ft apart
Duration: 1 round
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: Yes
This spell functions exactly like Irresistible Dance, only it affects multiple targets but only lasts one round (also accompanied by dance music)

Bendarion's Eternal Reward
Level: Revelry 9
Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Touch
Target: Creature touched
Duration: Instantaneous
Saving Throw: Will negates
Spell Resistance: Yes
This spell functions like Imprisonment, only instead of entombing the subject beneath the earth, it sends them to a plane of eternal partying and merriment (from which there is no escaping save by the casting of freedom). Still, it's a lot nice than being Imprisoned

The spell selection for the new domain is probably too powerful. You are giving spells 2 spell levels early for a cleric, or in one case giving it 2 levels earlier off of another classes list. Giving spells off another classes list is OK, but usually not sooner than that other class gets them.

I adjusted the spells a bit, but kept tongues as the 2nd level, mostly because the ability to communicate with any creature isn't overly powerful.
I adjusted the mass irresistible dance to make it only last a single round.
Other than that, juggled stuff around and put in major image.
