The manifester concentrates on the desired target, willing into existence a hidden presence within the target’s being. If the target fails a Will saving throw (save DC 30 + manifesting ability modifier), he can thereafter be compelled by the manifester to do anything at the caster’s whim, from any distance, even across planes. As with the non-epic spell dominate person, the caster can concentrate on the spell as a standard action to receive full sensory input as interpreted by the mind of the subject (the caster cannot actually see or hear at the target’s location, but has a good idea of what is happening there). The compulsion is unobtrusive, and is usually left latent until some point where the target’s “treachery” is of greatest potential efficacy. The trojan curse can only be detected by divinations if the caster of the divination succeeds on a caster level check against the manifester of the trojan curse.

The trojan curse lasts for one week, even if the target has already fulfilled the primary purpose of the manifester. However, evil psions tend to compel those under the effect of the trojan curse to kill themselves once their task is finished.

The Prince himself, Leviathan, first developed this epic power.
