  • The suggestion must be worded in such a manner as to make the activity sound reasonable. Asking the creature to do some obviously harmful act automatically negates the effect of the spell.
  • The suggested course of activity can continue for the entire duration. If the suggested activity can be completed in a shorter time, the spell ends when the subject finishes what it was asked to do. You can instead specify conditions that will trigger a special activity during the duration. If the condition is not met before the spell duration expires, the activity is not performed.
  • A very reasonable suggestion causes the save to be made with a penalty (such as -1 or -2).

Material Component A snake’s tongue and either a bit of honeycomb or a drop of sweet oil.
