If you are currently shaken, those who fail their saves are shaken as well. Note that this spell does not share thoughts or reasons, just the emotions themselves – a priest who is infuriated because his shrine had been desecrated could only share his righteous anger, not the reasons behind it. The other limitation of this spell is that it only shares whatever the caster is currently feeling – if he is angry, he can-not use this spell to make others feel sad or happy. This spell is frequently used in conjunction with a stirring oratory, to incite a crowd to take some action the caster fervently desires; it may be used to incite riots, or to enhance the enjoyment of everyone at a festival.
