Agitate Crowd

Agitate Crowd

Components: V, S

Casting Time: 10 minutes

Duration: 8 hours

Range: Self

Area of Effect: Sphere, 60-ft. radius

Saving Throw: Wis / negates effect

This spell enables you to sway a large group of people toward accomplishing a specific goal. You must speak emphatically on the subject for 10 minutes, playing on the crowd’s emotions and reason, to inflame their fervor for or against a cause or person. You must be clear about the specific goal you want to achieve. For example, shouting that ‘The Academy of s is evil and corrupt!’ might make people dislike the academy, but it won’t spur them to action because it doesn’t tell them what to do. Adding ‘Follow me, and we’ll burn it to the ground!’ will send a crowd of torch-bearing arsonists to the academy tower.

The spell affects all sentient creatures that are able to hear and understand you within 60 feet.

When you finish casting the spell, all potential targets of the spell who fail a Wisdom saving throw are compelled to follow your instructions for the duration of the spell, as long as those orders are in keeping with the goal stated in the speech and you personally lead them. If these conditions aren’t met, the spell ends and the crowd becomes hostile toward you. The spell also ends when the goal has been achieved.
