None - Yes (harmless) Adp 2, Clr 2, Luck 2 V, S, DF
1 min./level Touch 5 minutes
Target: Living creature touched

+1 on attack rolls and saves against fear, 1d8 temporary hp +1/level (max +10).

Animal Messenger
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 minute PRPG-O
None; see text - Yes Brd 2, Drd 2, Rgr 1 V, S, M
1 day/level Close 6 hours
Target: One Tiny animal

Sends a Tiny animal to a specific place.

You compel a Tiny animal to go to a spot you designate. The most common use for this spell is to get an animal to carry a message to your allies. The animal cannot be one tamed or trained by someone else, including such creatures as familiars and animal companions.

Using some type of food desirable to the animal as a lure, you call the animal to you. It advances and awaits your bidding. You can mentally impress on the animal a certain place well known to you or an obvious landmark. The directions must be simple, because the animal depends on your knowledge and can't find a destination on its own. You can attach a small item or note to the messenger. The animal then goes to the designated location and waits there until the duration of the spell expires, whereupon it resumes its normal activities.

During this period of waiting, the messenger allows others to approach it and remove any scroll or token it carries. The intended recipient gains no special ability to communicate with the animal or read any attached message (if it's written in a language he doesn't know, for example).

Animal Trance
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] [Sonic] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Adp 2, Brd 2, Drd 2 V, S
Concentration Close General
Targets: Animals or magical beasts with Intelligence 1 or 2

Fascinates 2d6 HD of animals.

Your swaying motions and music (or singing, or chanting) compel animals and magical beasts to do nothing but watch you. Only a creature with an Intelligence score of 1 or 2 can be fascinated by this spell. Roll 2d6 to determine the total number of HD worth of creatures that you fascinate. The closest targets are selected first until no more targets within range can be affected.

Antipathy
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 hour PRPG-O
Will partial - Yes Drd 9, Sor/Wiz 8 V, S, M/DF
2 hours/level (D) Close General
Target: One location (up to a 10-ft. cube/level) or one object

Object or location affected by spell repels certain creatures.

You cause an object or location to emanate magical vibrations that repel either a specific kind of intelligent creature or creatures of a particular alignment, as defined by you. The kind of creature to be affected must be named specifically. A creature subtype is not specific enough. Likewise, the specific alignment to be repelled must be named.

Creatures of the designated kind or alignment feel an urge to leave the area or to avoid the affected item.

A compulsion forces them to abandon the area or item, shunning it and never willingly returning to it while the spell is in effect. A creature that makes a successful saving throw can stay in the area or touch the item but feels uncomfortable doing so. This distracting discomfort reduces the creature's Dexterity score by 4 points.

Antipathy counters and dispels sympathy .

Bane
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Fear] [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Clr 1 V, S, DF
1 min./level 50 ft. General
Area: 50-ft.-radius burst, centered on you

Enemies take 1 on attack rolls and saves against fear.

Bane fills your enemies with fear and doubt. Each affected creature takes a –1 penalty on attack rolls and a –1 penalty on saving throws against fear effects. Bane counters and dispels bless .

Binding (M)
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 minute PRPG-O
Will negates; see text - Yes Sor/Wiz 8 V, S, M
See text (D) Close General
Target: One living creature
Materials: Opals worth 500 gp per HD of the target creature, plus other components as specified below

Utilizes an array of techniques to imprison a creature.

A binding spell creates a magical restraint to hold a creature. The target gets an initial saving throw only if its Hit Dice equal at least half your caster level.

You may have as many as six assistants help you with the spell. For each assistant who casts suggestion, your caster level for this casting of binding increases by 1. For each assistant who casts dominate animal or dominate monster your caster level for this casting of binding increases by a number equal to a third of that assistant's level, provided that the spell's target is appropriate for a binding spell. Since the assistants' spells are cast simply to improve your caster level for the purpose of the binding spell, saving throws and spell resistance against the assistants' spells are irrelevant. Your caster level determines whether the target gets an initial Will saving throw and how long the binding lasts. All binding spells are dismissible.

Regardless of the version of binding you cast, you can specify triggering conditions that end the spell and release the creature whenever they occur. These triggers can be as simple or elaborate as you desire, but the condition must be reasonable and have a likelihood of coming to pass. The conditions can be based on a creature's name, identity, or alignment, but otherwise must be based on observable actions or qualities. Intangibles such as level, class, Hit Dice, or hit points don't qualify. Once the spell is cast, its triggering conditions cannot be changed. Setting a release condition increases the save DC (assuming a saving throw is allowed) by 2.

If you cast any of the first three versions of binding (those with limited durations), you may cast additional binding spells to prolong the effect, overlapping the durations. If you do so, the target gets a saving throw at the end of the first spell's duration, even if your caster level was high enough to disallow an initial saving throw. If the creature's save succeeds, all binding spells it has received are broken.

The binding spell has six versions. Choose one of the following versions when you cast the spell.

Chaining : The subject is confined by restraints that generate an antipathy spell affecting all creatures who approach the subject, except you. The duration is 1 year per caster level. The subject of this form of binding is confined to the spot it occupied when it received the spell. Casting this version requires a chain that is long enough to wrap around the creature three times.

Slumber : This version causes the subject to become comatose for as long as 1 year per caster level. The subject does not need to eat or drink while slumbering, nor does it age. This form of binding is slightly easier to resist. Reduce the spell's save DC by 1. Casting this version requires a jar of sand or rose petals. This is a sleep effect.

Bound Slumber : This combination of chaining and slumber lasts for as long as 1 month per caster level. Reduce the save DC by 2. Casting this version requires both a long chain and a jar of sand or rose petals. This is a sleep effect.

Hedged Prison : The subject is transported to or otherwise brought within a confined area from which it cannot wander by any means. This effect is permanent. Reduce the save DC by 3. Casting this version requires a tiny golden cage worth 100 gp that is consumed when the spell is cast.

Metamorphosis : The subject assumes gaseous form, except for its head or face. It is held harmless in a jar or other container, which may be transparent if you so choose. The creature remains aware of its surroundings and can speak, but it cannot leave the container, attack, or use any of its powers or abilities. The binding is permanent. The subject does not need to breathe, eat, or drink while metamorphosed, nor does it age. Reduce the save DC by 4.

Minimus Containment : The subject is shrunk to a height of 1 inch or less and held within some gem, jar, or similar object. The binding is permanent. The subject does not need to breathe, eat, or drink while contained, nor does it age. Reduce the save DC by 4.

You can't dispel a binding spell with dispel magic or a similar effect, though an antimagic field or mage's disjunction affects it normally. A bound extraplanar creature cannot be sent back to its home plane by dismissal or a similar effect.

Bless
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
None - Yes (harmless) Adp 1, Clr 1, Community 1, Pal 1 V, S, DF
1 min./level 50 ft. 30 minutes
Area: The caster and all allies within a 50-ft. burst, centered on the caster

Allies gain +1 on attack rolls and saves against fear.

Bless fills your allies with courage. Each ally gains a +1 morale bonus on attack rolls and on saving throws against fear effects.

Bless counters and dispels bane .

Calm Animals
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Animal 1, Drd 1, Rgr 1 V, S
1 min./level Close General
Targets: Animals within 30 ft. of each other

Calms 2d4 + level HD of animals.

This spell soothes and quiets animals, rendering them docile and harmless. Only ordinary animals (those with Intelligence scores of 1 or 2) can be affected by this spell. All the subjects must be of the same kind, and no two may be more than 30 feet apart. The maximum number of HD of animals you can affect is equal to 2d4 + caster level.

The affected creatures remain where they are and do not attack or flee. They are not helpless and defend themselves normally if attacked. Any threat breaks the spell on the threatened creatures.

Calm Emotions
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 2, Charm 2, Clr 2 V, S, DF
Concentration, up to 1 round/level (D) Medium General
Area: Creatures in a 20-ft.-radius spread

Calms creatures, negating emotion effects.

This spell calms agitated creatures. You have no control over the affected creatures, but calm emotions can stop raging creatures from fighting or joyous ones from reveling. Creatures so affected cannot take violent actions (although they can defend themselves) or do anything destructive. Any aggressive action against or damage dealt to a calmed creature immediately breaks the spell on all calmed creatures.

This spell automatically suppresses (but does not dispel) any morale bonuses granted by spells such as bless and rage and also negates a bard's ability to inspire courage or a barbarian's rage ability. It also suppresses any fear effects and removes the confusedcondition from all targets. While the spell lasts, a suppressed spell, condition, or effect has no effect. When the calm emotions spell ends, the original spell or effect takes hold of the creature again, provided that its duration has not expired in the meantime.

Charm Animal
Enchantment (Charm) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Drd 1, Rgr 1 V, S
1 hour/level Close 1 hour
Target: One animal

Makes one animal your friend.

This spell functions like charm person, except that it affects a creature of the animal type.

Charm Monster
Enchantment (Charm) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 3, Charm 5, Sor/Wiz 4 V, S
1 day/level Close 1 hour
Target: One living creature

Makes monster believe it is your ally.

This spell functions like charm person, except that the effect is not restricted by creature type or size.

Mass Charm Monster
Enchantment (Charm) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 6, Sor/Wiz 8 V
1 day/level Close 1 hour
Targets: One or more creatures, no two of which can be more than 30 ft. apart

As charm monster, but all within 30 ft.

This spell functions like charm person, except that the effect is not restricted by creature type or size.

This spell functions like charm monster except that mass charm monster affects a number of creatures whose combined HD do not exceed twice your level, or at least one creature regardless of HD. If there are more potential targets than you can affect, you choose them one at a time until you must choose a creature with too many HD to affect.

Charm Person
Enchantment (Charm) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 1, Charm 1, Sor/Wiz 1 V, S
1 hour/level Close 1 hour
Target: One humanoid creature

Makes one person your friend.

This charm makes a humanoid creature regard you as its trusted friend and ally (treat the target's attitude as friendly). If the creature is currently being threatened or attacked by you or your allies, however, it receives a +5 bonus on its saving throw.

The spell does not enable you to control the charmed person as if it were an automaton, but it perceives your words and actions in the most favorable way. You can try to give the subject orders, but you must win an opposed Charisma check to convince it to do anything it wouldn't ordinarily do. (Retries are not allowed.) An affected creature never obeys suicidal or obviously harmful orders, but it might be convinced that something very dangerous is worth doing. Any act by you or your apparent allies that threatens the charmed person breaks the spell. You must speak the person's language to communicate your commands, or else be good at pantomiming.

Command
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Language-dependent] [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Adp 1, Clr 1 V
1 round Close General
Target: One living creature

One subject obeys selected command for 1 round.

You give the subject a single command, which it obeys to the best of its ability at its earliest opportunity. You may select from the following options.

Approach : On its turn, the subject moves toward you as quickly and directly as possible for 1 round. The creature may do nothing but move during its turn, and it provokes attacks of opportunity for this movement as normal.

Drop : On its turn, the subject drops whatever it is holding. It can't pick up any dropped item until its next turn.

Fall : On its turn, the subject falls to the ground and remains prone for 1 round. It may act normally while prone but takes any appropriate penalties.

Flee : On its turn, the subject moves away from you as quickly as possible for 1 round. It may do nothing but move during its turn, and it provokes attacks of opportunity for this movement as normal.

Halt : The subject stands in place for 1 round. It may not take any actions but is not considered helpless.

If the subject can't carry out your command on its next turn, the spell automatically fails.

Greater Command
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Language-dependent] [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O

Approach : On its turn, the subject moves toward you as quickly and directly as possible for 1 round. The creature may do nothing but move during its turn, and it provokes attacks of opportunity for this movement as normal.

Drop : On its turn, the subject drops whatever it is holding. It can't pick up any dropped item until its next turn.

Fall : On its turn, the subject falls to the ground and remains prone for 1 round. It may act normally while prone but takes any appropriate penalties.

Halt : The subject stands in place for 1 round. It may not take any actions but is not considered helpless.

If the subject can't carry out your command on its next turn, the spell automatically fails.

This spell functions like command except that up to one creature per level may be affected, and the activities continue beyond 1 round. At the start of each commanded creature's action after the first, it gets another Will save to attempt to break free from the spell. Each creature must receive the same command.

Confusion
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 3, Madness 4, Sor/Wiz 4, Trickery 4 V, S, M/DF
1 round/level Medium General
Targets: All creatures in a 15-ft.-radius burst

Any confused character who is attacked automatically attacks its attackers on its next turn, as long as it is still confused when its turn comes. Note that a confused character will not make attacks of opportunity against any creature that it is not already devoted to attacking (either because of its most recent action or because it has just been attacked).

Lesser Confusion

Crushing Despair
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 4 V, S, M
1 min./level 30 ft. General
Area: Cone-shaped burst

Subjects take 2 on attack rolls, damage rolls, saves, and checks.

Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 0, Sor/Wiz 0 V, S, M
1 round Close General
Target: One humanoid creature of 4 HD or less

Humanoid creature of 4 HD or less loses next action.

This spell clouds the mind of a humanoid creature with 4 or fewer Hit Dice so that it takes no actions. Humanoids of 5 or more HD are not affected. A dazed subject is not stunned, so attackers get no special advantage against it. After a creature has been dazed by this spell, it is immune to the effects of this spell for 1 minute.

Daze Monster

Will negates - Yes Brd 2, Sor/Wiz 2 V, S, M
1 round Medium General

Demand
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 10 minutes PRPG-O
Will partial - Yes Charm 8, Nobility 8, Sor/Wiz 8 V, S, M/DF
1 round; see text See text 30 minutes
Target: One creature

As sending, plus you can send suggestion.

This spell functions like sending but the message can also contain a suggestion (see the suggestion spell), which the subject does its best to carry out. A successful Will save negates the suggestion effect but not the contact itself. The demand, if received, is understood even if the subject's Intelligence score is as low as 1. If the message is impossible or meaningless according to the circumstances that exist for the subject at the time the demand is issued, the message is understood but the suggestion is ineffective.

The demand 's message to the creature must be 25 words or less, including the suggestion The creature can also give a short reply immediately.

Dominate Animal
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 round PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Animal 3, Drd 3 V, S
1 round/level Close General
Target: One animal

One animal obeys your silent mental commands and orders.

This spell allows you to enchant the targeted animal and direct it with simple commands such as "Attack," "Run," and "Fetch." Suicidal or self-destructive commands (including an order to attack a creature two or more size categories larger than the dominated animal) are simply ignored.

Dominate animal establishes a mental link between you and the subject creature. The animal can be directed by silent mental command as long as it remains in range. You need not see the creature to control it. You do not receive direct sensory input from the creature, but you know what it is experiencing. Because you are directing the animal with your own intelligence, it may be able to undertake actions normally beyond its own comprehension. You need not concentrate exclusively on controlling the creature unless you are trying to direct it to do something it normally couldn't do. Changing your instructions or giving a dominated creature a new command is the equivalent of redirecting a spell, so it is a move action.

Dominate Monster
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 round PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Charm 9, Sor/Wiz 9 V, S
1 day/level Close 1 hour
Target: One creature

As dominate person, but any creature.

This spell functions like dominate person except that the spell is not restricted by creature type.

Dominate Person
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 round PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 4, Sor/Wiz 5 V, S
1 day/level Close 1 hour
Target: One humanoid

Controls humanoid telepathically.

You can control the actions of any humanoid creature through a telepathic link that you establish with the subject's mind.

If you and the subject have a common language, you can generally force the subject to perform as you desire, within the limits of its abilities. If no common language exists, you can communicate only basic commands, such as "Come here," "Go there," "Fight," and "Stand still." You know what the subject is experiencing, but you do not receive direct sensory input from it, nor can it communicate with you telepathically.

Once you have given a dominated creature a command, it continues to attempt to carry out that command to the exclusion of all other activities except those necessary for day-to-day survival (such as sleeping, eating, and so forth). Because of this limited range of activity, a Sense Motive check against DC 15 (rather than DC 25) can determine that the subject's behavior is being influenced by an enchantment effect (see the Sense Motive skill description).

Changing your orders or giving a dominated creature a new command is a move action.

By concentrating fully on the spell (a standard action), you can receive full sensory input as interpreted by the mind of the subject, though it still can't communicate with you. You can't actually see through the subject's eyes, so it's not as good as being there yourself, but you still get a good idea of what's going on.

Subjects resist this control, and any subject forced to take actions against its nature receives a new saving throw with a +2 bonus. Obviously self-destructive orders are not carried out. Once control is established, the range at which it can be exercised is unlimited, as long as you and the subject are on the same plane. You need not see the subject to control it.

If you don't spend at least 1 round concentrating on the spell each day, the subject receives a new saving throw to throw off the domination.

Protection from evil or a similar spell can prevent you from exercising control or using the telepathic link while the subject is so warded, but such an effect does not automatically dispel it.

Enthrall
Enchantment (Charm) [Language-dependent] [Mind-affecting] [Sonic] 1 round PRPG-O
Will negates; see text - Yes Brd 2, Clr 2, Nobility 2 V, S
1 hour or less Medium General
Targets: Any number of creatures

Captivates all within 100 ft. + 10 ft./level.

If you have the attention of a group of creatures, you can use this spell to hold them enthralled. To cast the spell, you must speak or sing without interruption for 1 full round. Thereafter, those affected give you their undivided attention, ignoring their surroundings. They are considered to have an attitude of friendly while under the effect of the spell. Any potentially affected creature of a race or religion unfriendly to yours gets a +4 bonus on the saving throw.

A target with 4 or more HD or with a Wisdom score of 16 or higher remains aware of its surroundings and has an attitude of indifferent. It gains a new saving throw if it witnesses actions that it opposes.

The effect lasts as long as you speak or sing, to a maximum of 1 hour. Those enthralled by your words take no action while you speak or sing and for 1d3 rounds thereafter while they discuss the topic or performance. Those entering the area during the performance must also successfully save or become enthralled. The speech ends (but the 1d3-round delay still applies) if you lose concentration or do anything other than speak or sing.

If those not enthralled have unfriendly or hostile attitudes toward you, they can collectively make a Charisma check to try to end the spell by jeering and heckling. For this check, use the Charisma bonus of the creature with the highest Charisma in the group; others may make Charisma checks to assist. The heckling ends the spell if this check result beats your Charisma check result. Only one such challenge is allowed per use of the spell.

If any member of the audience is attacked or subjected to some other overtly hostile act, the spell ends and the previously enthralled members become immediately unfriendly toward you. Each creature with 4 or more HD or with a Wisdom score of 16 or higher becomes hostile.

Feeblemind
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates; see text - Yes Sor/Wiz 5 V, S, M
Instant Medium General
Target: One creature

Subject's Int and Cha drop to 1.

Target creature's Intelligence and Charisma scores each drop to 1. The affected creature is unable to use Intelligence- or Charisma-based skills, cast spells, understand language, or communicate coherently. Still, it knows who its friends are and can follow them and even protect them. The subject remains in this state until a heal, limited wish, miracle, or wish spell is used to cancel the effect of the feeblemind . A creature that can cast arcane spells, such as a sorcerer or a wizard, takes a –4 penalty on its saving throw.

Lesser Geas
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Language-dependent] [Mind-affecting] 1 round PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 4 V
1 day/level or until discharged (D) Close General
Target: One living creature with 7 HD or less

Commands subject of 7 HD or less.

A lesser geas places a magical command on a creature to carry out some service or to refrain from some action or course of activity, as desired by you. The creature must have 7 or fewer HD and be able to understand you. While a geas cannot compel a creature to kill itself or perform acts that would result in certain death, it can cause almost any other course of activity.

The geased creature must follow the given instructions until the geas is completed, no matter how long it takes.

If the instructions involve some open-ended task that the recipient cannot complete through his own actions, the spell remains in effect for a maximum of 1 day per caster level. A clever recipient can subvert some instructions.

If the subject is prevented from obeying the lesser geas for 24 hours, it takes a –2 penalty to each of its ability scores. Each day, another –2 penalty accumulates, up to a total of –8. No ability score can be reduced to less than 1 by this effect. The ability score penalties are removed 24 hours after the subject resumes obeying the lesser geas.

A lesser geas (and all ability score penalties) can be ended by break enchantment, limited wish, remove curse, miracle, or wish . Dispel magic does not affect a lesser geas .

Geas/Quest
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Language-dependent] [Mind-affecting] 10 minutes PRPG-O
None - Yes Brd 6, Charm 6, Clr 6, Nobility 6, Sor/Wiz 6 V
1 day/level or until discharged (D) Close General
Target: One living creature

As lesser geas, but affects any creature.

This spell functions similarly to lesser geas, except that it affects a creature of any HD and allows no saving throw.

If the subject is prevented from obeying the geas/quest for 24 hours, it takes a –3 penalty to each of its ability scores. Each day, another –3 penalty accumulates, up to a total of –12. No ability score can be reduced to less than 1 by this effect. The ability score penalties are removed 24 hours after the subject resumes obeying the geas/quest.

A remove curse spell ends a geas/quest spell only if its caster level is at least two higher than your caster level. Break enchantment does not end a geas/quest, but limited wish, miracle, and wish do.

Bards, sorcerers, and wizards usually refer to this spell as geas, while clerics call the same spell quest .

Hideous Laughter
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 1, Sor/Wiz 2 V, S, M
1 round/level Close General
Target: One creature; see text

Subject loses actions for 1 round/level.

This spell afflicts the subject with uncontrollable laughter. It collapses into gales of manic laughter, falling prone. The subject can take no actions while laughing, but is not considered helpless. After the spell ends, it can act normally. On the creature's next turn, it may attempt a new saving throw to end the effect. This is a full round action that does not provoke attacks of opportunity. If this save is successful, the effect ends. If not, the creature continues laughing for the entire duration.

A creature with an Intelligence score of 2 or lower is not affected. A creature whose type is different from the caster's receives a +4 bonus on its saving throw, because humor doesn't "translate" well.

Hypnotism
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 round PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 1, Sor/Wiz 1 V, S
2d4 rounds (D) Close General
Area: Several living creatures, no two of which may be more than 30 ft. apart

Fascinates 2d4 HD of creatures.

Your gestures and droning incantation fascinate nearby creatures, causing them to stop and stare blankly at you. In addition, you can use their rapt attention to make your suggestions and requests seem more plausible. Roll 2d4 to see how many total HD of creatures you affect. Creatures with fewer HD are affected before creatures with more HD. Only creatures that can see or hear you are affected, but they do not need to understand you to be fascinated.

If you use this spell in combat, each target gains a +2 bonus on its saving throw. If the spell affects only a single creature not in combat at the time, the saving throw has a penalty of –2.

While the subject is fascinated by this spell, it reacts as though it were two steps more friendly in attitude. This allows you to make a single request of the affected creature (provided you can communicate with it). The request must be brief and reasonable. Even after the spell ends, the creature retains its new attitude toward you, but only with respect to that particular request.

A creature that fails its saving throw does not remember that you enspelled it.

Insanity
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Charm 7, Madness 7, Sor/Wiz 7 V, S
Instant Medium General
Target: One living creature

Subject suffers continuous confusion.

The affected creature suffers from a continuous confusion effect, as the spell.

Remove curse does not removeinsanity. Greater restoration, heal, limited wish, miracle, or wish can restore the creature.

Irresistible Dance
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will partial - Yes Brd 6, Sor/Wiz 8 V
1d4+1 rounds Touch General
Target: Living creature touched

Forces subject to dance.

The subject feels an undeniable urge to dance and begins doing so, complete with foot shuffling and tapping. The spell effect makes it impossible for the subject to do anything other than caper and prance in place. The effect imposes a –4 penalty to Armor Class and a –10 penalty on Reflex saves, and it negates any AC bonus granted by a shield the target holds. The dancing subject provokes attacks of opportunity each round on its turn. A successful Will save reduces the duration of this effect to 1 round.

Lullaby
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 0 V, S
Concentration + 1 round/level (D) Medium General
Area: Living creatures within a 10-ft.-radius burst

Makes subject drowsy; 5 on Perception checks, 2 on Will saves against sleep.

Any creature within the area that fails a Will save becomes drowsy and inattentive, taking a –5 penalty on Perception checks and a –2 penalty on Will saves against sleep effects while the lullaby is in effect. Lullaby lasts for as long as the caster concentrates, plus up to 1 round per caster level thereafter.

Mind Fog
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 5, Sor/Wiz 5 V, S
30 minutes and 2d6 rounds; see text Medium 6 hours
Effect: Fog spreads in 20-ft. radius, 20 ft. high

Subjects in fog get 10 to Wis and Will checks.

Mind fog produces a bank of thin mist that weakens the mental resistance of those caught in it. Creatures in the mind fog take a –10 penalty on Wisdom checks and Will saves. (A creature that successfully saves against the fog is not affected and need not make further saves even if it remains in the fog.) Affected creatures take the penalty as long as they remain in the fog and for 2d6 rounds thereafter. The fog is stationary and lasts for 30 minutes (or until dispersed by wind).

A moderate wind (11+ mph) disperses the fog in 4 rounds; a strong wind (21+ mph) disperses the fog in 1 round.

The fog is thin and does not significantly hamper vision.

Modify Memory
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 round; see text PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 4 V, S
Permanent Close General
Target: One living creature

Changes 5 minutes of subject's memories.

You reach into the subject's mind and modify as many as 5 minutes of its memories in one of the following ways.

  • Eliminate all memory of an event the subject actually experienced. This spell cannot negate charm, geas/quest, suggestion, or similar spells.
  • Allow the subject to recall with perfect clarity an event it actually experienced.
  • Change the details of an event the subject actually experienced.
  • Implant a memory of an event the subject never experienced.

Casting the spell takes 1 round. If the subject fails to save, you proceed with the spell by spending as much as 5 minutes (a period of time equal to the amount of memory you want to modify) visualizing the memory you wish to modify in the subject. If your concentration is disturbed before the visualization is complete, or if the subject is ever beyond the spell's range during this time, the spell is lost.

A modified memory does not necessarily affect the subject's actions, particularly if it contradicts the creature's natural inclinations. An illogical modified memory is dismissed by the creature as a bad dream, too much wine, or another similar excuse.

Gives +2 to Str and Con, +1 on Will saves, 2 to AC.

Sleep
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 round PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Adp 1, Brd 1, Sor/Wiz 1 V, S, M
1 min./level Medium General
Area: One or more living creatures within a 10-ft.-radius burst

Puts 4 HD of creatures into magical slumber.

A sleep spell causes a magical slumber to come upon 4 HD of creatures. Creatures with the fewest HD are affected first. Among creatures with equal HD, those who are closest to the spell's point of origin are affected first. HD that are not sufficient to affect a creature are wasted. Sleeping creatures are helpless. Slapping or wounding awakens an affected creature, but normal noise does not. Awakening a creature is a standard action (an application of the aid another action). Sleep does not target unconscious creatures, constructs, or undead creatures.

Song of Discord
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] [Sonic] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 5 V, S
1 round/level Medium General
Area: Creatures within a 20-ft.-radius spread

Forces targets to attack each other.

This spell causes those within the area to turn on each other rather than attack their foes. Each affected creature has a 50% chance to attack the nearest target each round. (Roll to determine each creature's behavior every round at the beginning of its turn.) A creature that does not attack its nearest neighbor is free to act normally for that round. Creatures forced by a song of discord to attack their fellows employ all methods at their disposal, choosing their deadliest spells and most advantageous combat tactics. They do not, however, harm targets that have fallen unconscious.

Suggestion
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Language-dependent] [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 2, Charm 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, M
1 hour/level or until completed Close 30 minutes
Target: One living creature

Compels subject to follow stated course of action.

You influence the actions of the target creature by suggesting a course of activity (limited to a sentence or two). The suggestion must be worded in such a manner as to make the activity sound reasonable. Asking the creature to do some obviously harmful act automatically negates the effect of the spell.

The suggested course of activity can continue for the entire duration. If the suggested activity can be completed in a shorter time, the spell ends when the subject finishes what it was asked to do. You can instead specify conditions that will trigger a special activity during the duration. If the condition is not met before the spell duration expires, the activity is not performed.

A very reasonable suggestion causes the save to be made with a penalty (such as –1 or –2).

You influence the actions of the target creature by suggesting a course of activity (limited to a sentence or two).

You can instead specify conditions that will trigger a special activity during the duration. If the condition is not met before the spell duration expires, the activity is not performed.

A very reasonable suggestion causes the save to be made with a penalty (such as –1 or –2).

This spell functions like suggestion, except that it can affect more creatures. The same suggestion applies to all these creatures.

Triggered rune renders nearby creatures insane.

This spell functions like symbol of death, except that all creatures within the radius of the symbol of insanity instead become permanently insane (as the insanity spell).

Unlike symbol of death, symbol of insanity has no hit point limit; once triggered, a symbol of insanity simply remains active for 10 minutes per caster level.

Note : Magic traps such as symbol of insanity are hard to detect and disable. A rogue (only) can use the Perception skill to find a symbol of insanity and Disable Device to thwart it. The DC in each case is 25 + spell level, or 33 for symbol of insanity .

Triggered rune puts nearby creatures into catatonic slumber.

This spell functions like symbol of death, except that all creatures of 10 HD or less within 60 feet of the symbol of sleep instead fall into a catatonic slumber for 3d6 × 10 minutes. Unlike with the sleep spell, sleeping creatures cannot be awakened by nonmagical means before this time expires.

Unlike symbol of death, symbol of sleep has no hit point limit; once triggered, a symbol of sleep simply remains active for 10 minutes per caster level.

Note : Magic traps such as symbol of sleep are hard to detect and disable. A rogue (only) can use the Perception skill to find a symbol of sleep and Disable Device to thwart it. The DC in each case is 25 + spell level, or 30 for symbol of sleep .

Sympathy (M)

Will negates; see text - Yes Drd 9, Sor/Wiz 8 V, S, M
2 hours/level (D) Close General
Target: One location (up to a 10-ft. cube/level) or one object
Materials: A drop of honey and crushed pearls worth 1,500 gp

Object or location attracts certain creatures.

You cause an object or location to emanate magical vibrations that attract either a specific kind of intelligent creature or creatures of a particular alignment, as defined by you. The particular kind of creature to be affected must be named specifically. A creature subtype is not specific enough. Likewise, the specific alignment must be named.

Creatures of the specified kind or alignment feel elated and pleased to be in the area or desire to touch or possess the object. The compulsion to stay in the area or touch the object is overpowering. If the save is successful, the creature is released from the enchantment, but a subsequent save must be made 1d6 × 10 minutes later. If this save fails, the affected creature attempts to return to the area or object.

Sympathy counters and dispels antipathy .

Touch of Idiocy
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
None - Yes Madness 2, Sor/Wiz 2 V, S
10 min./level Touch General
Target: Living creature touched

Subject takes 1d6 penalty to Int, Wis, and Cha.

With a touch, you reduce the target's mental faculties. Your successful melee touch attack applies a 1d6 penalty to the target's Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma scores. This penalty can't reduce any of these scores below 1.

This spell's effect may make it impossible for the target to cast some or all of its spells, if the requisite ability score drops below the minimum required to cast spells of that level.

Zone of Truth
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Clr 2, Pal 2 V, S, DF
1 min./level Close 30 minutes
Area: 20-ft.-radius emanation

Subjects within range cannot lie.

Creatures within the emanation area (or those who enter it) can't speak any deliberate and intentional lies. Each potentially affected creature is allowed a save to avoid the effects when the spell is cast or when the creature first enters the emanation area. Affected creatures are aware of this enchantment. Therefore, they may avoid answering questions to which they would normally respond with a lie, or they may be evasive as long as they remain within the boundaries of the truth. Creatures who leave the area are free to speak as they choose.
