You can use benign dispel to dispel magic you have created or cast yourself. You can choose to suppress a single magic item you created, dispel a single targeted spell, all spells on a single targeted object or creature, or a single spell on each object or creature in a 20-ft.-radius burst.

A dispelled spell ends as if its duration had expired. Some spells, as detailed in their descriptions, can’t be defeated by benign dispel. Benign dispel can dispel spell-like effects just as it does spells, but not supernatural effects.

If you cast it on a magic item you have created, all the item’s magical properties are suppressed for 1d4 rounds, after which the item recovers on its own. A suppressed item becomes nonmagical for the duration of the effect. An interdimensional interface (such as a bag of holding) is temporarily closed. A magic item’s physical properties are unchanged: A suppressed magic sword is still a sword (a masterwork sword, in fact).

Benign Dispel, Greater

Level: Ass 1, Blk 1, Brd 1, Clr 1, Sor/Wiz 1
Range: Long (400 ft. + 40 ft./level)
Target or Area: One spell, creature, or object

Except as noted this is the same as benign dispel. Greater benign dispel cannot affect an area, but does not require a line of sight or effect; as long as the target is in range you can cast it successfully.

Benign Dispel, Swift

Level: Brd 2, Clr 3, Drd 2, Sor/Wiz 2
Casting Time: 1 swift action

Except as noted above this is the same as benign dispel.
