Limited Domain (Ex)

The realm of a guardian daemon encompasses only the area it is summoned to guard; a room, chamber, or treasure. The area can be no larger than 100 feet + 10 feet per caster level of the one who summoned it. The guardian daemon can wander freely in its area, but cannot move beyond the precincts of the designated area.

Editor's Note

Although listed as a daemon, it lacks the daemon subtype and evil subtype common to all daemons.  However, it appears to have all the features and common abilities for creatures with these subtypes.  We recommend GM's consider the Guardian Daemon to have the daemon and evil subtypes.

Summoning a Guardian Daemon

A guardian daemon can be summoned by a planar ally, greater planar ally, planar binding, greater planar binding or similar magic that allows a spellcaster to bring an outsider to the Material Plane.
