Enchantment (Compulsion) [Language-Dependent, Mind-Affecting]
Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
One living creature with 7 HD or less
or until discharged (D)
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 Hit Dice
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 one 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.
