Symbol of Persuasion

School enchantment (charm) [mind-affecting]; Level cleric 6, sorcerer/wizard 6

Components V, S, M (mercury and phosphorus, plus powdered diamond and opal worth a total of 5,000 gp)

Saving Throw Will negates

This spell functions like symbol of death, except that all creatures within the radius of a symbol of persuasion instead become charmed by the caster (as the charm monster spell) for 1 hour per caster level.

Unlike symbol of death, symbol of persuasion has no hit point limit; once triggered, a symbol of persuasion simply remains active for 10 minutes per caster level.

Note: Magic traps such as symbol of persuasion are hard to detect and disable. While any character can use Perception to find a symbol, only a character with the trapfinding class feature can use Disable Device to disarm it. The DC in each case is 25 + spell level, or 31 for symbol of persuasion.
