Command's effects end when the spell ends though, the psychological effects of Nybor's Gentle Reminder last a lot longer. Eventually allowing me to control a large group of slaves.

I imagine it would lose its effectivity as a tool of control when they figure out you can only do it once per day, though. Still a decent substitute for a taser or pepper spray, though.

But NOT using it immediately after an offense would keep its effectiveness up, for at least a little while.
If someone does the “Fine, you’re right, I’m clearly a terrible person, I’m Satan, I’m the worst person alive, I should just die” thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.


Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial in

Honestly I think I want a cantrip, Mage Hand.  I can see being able to pick up and manipulate stuff from 25 feet away being useful damn near all the time.

Well, hell, if you're gonna be practical, go with "Clean" as a cantrip.

Offed an orc with that one, once...  Narrow stairway, he was giving the fighters some trouble...  Tossed a rag down with the "Clean" cantrip, told it to give his face a good cleaning.

The DM about laughed his ass off.

I had forgotten about command! It only lasts a round, so I'd want the 2nd edition edition version where rounds are still a minute long.  :lol:

In this mundane world without magic, I wonder if people could even recognize that they've been magically compelled. Like if I was all "Command: back massage" (or something), when the command wore off, I wonder if people would continue to massage because they just think that this is what they chose to do.

I'm surprised nobody's said Cure Light Wounds... I would live very dangerously if I could cure the equivalent of a nasty knife wound every day. I would also be fabulously rich.

Oh, if we're including Clerical spells....no, still Charm Person.

Although, Larloch's Minor Drain is actually superior in curative ability, if you don't mind stealing others health.

If it were any curative spell, gimme Cure Disease.  I'd be truly, stinking rich.

Not me.  I'd cure a bunch of people, and then ask - VERY loudly - "WHAT HAVE YOU PEOPLE BEEN UP TO WHILE I'VE BEEN GONE?  I AM NOT HAPPY."

Magic Missile.

This could be fun. Commoners have d4 for hit dice, iirc, so basically you get to beat someone to within an inch of their life at will once per day, at range, and it never misses.
