You can send silent telepathic commands to subjects in an area. You can give him a simple command to all subjects that failed to resist; see the Suggest skill (p. B191) for guidelines. Any order that goes against a subject’s values or sense of self-preservation triggers another resistance roll, possibly at a bonus. The suggestion only lasts as long as the spell lasts. You can only give the same command to the whole group.
The subjects remembers everything they did, but they are convinced that they chose to do so. They will react to behavior too bizarre to be rationalized by pushing it out of their mind and not thinking about it. Hypnotism, Psychology, and Telepathy can be used to eventually bring out the truth.
If you tie or lose, the subjects can sense coercion coming from you. In addition, you cannot try to affect them again within 24 hours.
Statistics: Mind Control (Area Effect, 2 yards, +50%; Extended Duration, 3x, +20%; Fixed Duration, +0%; Independent, +70%; Rationalization, +20%; Sorcery, -15%; Suggestion, -40%) [103]. Additional levels add Area Effect (+50%) [+25].
