Two sessions ago, during our weekly Pathfinder game, my bard almost kicked the bucket. She got saved in time by the other players, but it was really close. So afterward, our (LN) inquisitor approached her and discreetly handed her a wand of 'Infernal Healing' with the instructions to use it next time, please.
Now, Infernal Healing has the [evil] descriptor and fluff-wise I always took it as some sort of subtle temptation. Yeah, it's useful, but it still works with devils blood/unholy water and you are kinda dealing with evil. Accepting help from devils – slippery slope and all. The bard recognized the spell, but is not worldly/wise enough to know what to expect from it.
I heard that using spells with the [evil] descriptor shift your alignment to neutral after 3 uses and then it's two more uses till you're evil. Further research turned up conflicting information. Soooo… is this true in Pathfinder? Does it apply to wands as well? And is this a slightly magical/mind-controlly thing or just mundane 'your PC is doing evil stuff, so they're evil now'?
Admittedly, it would be pretty funny if the CG (“nicest member of the party”, according to the inquisitor) bard slowly got corrupted with nobody noticing… the staff still has 40+ uses, after all….
