This spell creates an illusion making appear the target as if she was whining and snivelling when she speaks. Note that the spell doesn’t change any of the words the victim says. Rather it seemingly changes the way she says them, so as to naturally anger those listening to her. By no way such snivelling could induce pity; it will always induce irritation, as if whined by someone with odious manners and terrible Charisma. The victim of the spell will be unaware of the spell effects unless she makes a Will saving throw. The listeners are entitled a Will saving throw for disbelief only if they have a strong reason to suspect that something is amiss. However the irritation that the spell induces is a natural result, not a magical influence.

The subject of the spell gets a ·10 penalty on all her Charisma checks and skills of communication such as Bluff or Diplomacy, for spell duration. Moreover, all those listening to the subject have their reaction automatically shifted one factor closer to a -Hostile Attitude- reaction.
