    Relationship with Roland
    If you successfully bind Roland you manifest all of the benefits as a Binder would. You may never bind another Vestige or you lose all of the class abilities for Templar of Roland until you atone. In addition you must remain Lawful and Good and in good standing with Sophia or lose the class abilities for Templar of Roland until you regaining Lawful Good alignment and a good standing with Sophia. Your Binder level is equal to your levels in Templar of Roland. You may not gain any levels of another class until you have completed this prestige class to level 10.

    Divine Guidance
    Your levels in Templar of Roland stack with Paladin levels for determining your Smite Evil, Turn Undead, Remove Disease and Spellcasting (if you could cast before entering this class only). If you had no levels in Paladin then you count as a Paladin of your level -1 (min 0) for those abilities (except the spellcasting). If you had Turn undead that was not from Paladin levels before entering this class then this add your levels in Templar of Roland-4 to determine Turn Undead Abilities.

    Holy Rage
    <weaker barbarian rage that also makes attacks good aligned and deals extra damage to undead, stacks with barbarian rage for daily use.>

    Obscure Personal Truename
    Gain Obscure Personal Truename as a bonus feat. If you already have it you may chose any other True Name feat you qualify for.

    Mettle

    Gain Rapid Pact Making as a bonus feat. If you already have it you may chose any other pact making feat you qualify for.

    DR 5/Evil
    At level 5 your devotion grants you DR 5/EVIL.
    If you have Roland bound then add 2 DR to this (DR 7/EVIL). This replaces your DR from binding Roland.

    Improved Holy Rage
    <improved bonuses from Holy Rage, less penalties>

    Improved Mettle
    <as normal improved mettle>

    Purification Domain
    You gain the granted power of the Purification Domain. If you are a Paladin and can cast spells you may cast from the Purification Domain in addition to your normal spells.

    DR 10/Evil and Magic
    At level 10 your DR increases to DR 10/Evil and Magic
    If you have Roland bound then add 5 DR to this (DR 15/EVIL & MAGIC). This replaces your DR from binding Roland.

    Cleanse the Flesh
    Once per day you may kneel in mediation for a single combat round. If you are not struck or pass a concentration check (DC10+damage taken) then you may activate Cleanse the Flesh.

    You should give him some sort of progression for paladin casting, like 1/2 levels, or possibly weak casting with a limited list of utility/undead detection spells. Can't believe that bastard gets his own prestige, haha. Too awesome.

    I think you should give the class the Blackguard casting (with paladin spells) instead of letting it progress the Paladin's casting.

    And you could make the Caster level the sum of your Templar and Paladin levels.

    I'm afraid I don't really know how to build vestiges properly. I gave a stab at a starting design. Also, I can't seem to find the suggestions Erik and I posted.
