Ovinrbaane and Modify Memory


Rules Questions


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I'm asking this here because more people see it than in the Kingmaker thread, and it is more of a rules question anyway. I've using a spoiler just in case.

Kingmaker Book 4 Spoilers:
I'm running Kingmaker, and the party's sorcerer picked up Ovinrbaane (https://www.d20pfsrd.com/magic-items/artifacts/minor-artifacts/ovinrbaane- enemy-of-all-enemies/), He failed the ego check and the sword became dominate and cast modify memory on him. Here's my issue, RAW modify memory only works for 5 minutes, yet the sword slowly turns you into Armag. The way it's written makes me think that it modifies your memory, and the transformation begins it's slow process until you turn on your own party. If I have that wrong, how is it supposed to work if the modify memory only lasts 5 minutes?

Thanks in advance!


I don't know what the question is without looking at spoilers :(

Soo..... I guess it works. Unless it doesn't

I just didn't want to spoil anything for anyone playing Kingmaker.


Without spoiling anything: Reread the spell description.

Modify Memory makes a permanent (not instant, though, so it can be dispelled) modification to up to 5 minutes of the target's memory.

Spoiler:
So the sword will modify the owner's memories, 5 minutes at a time, until the owner's memories are all that of Armag; at that point,
for all intents and purposes, they ARE Armag, at least as far as their personality is concerned. The sword also alters their appearance. Of course it doesn't change class features, but I guess Armag would probably want to retrain their puny wizard class features to pick up Barbarian, you know, like a real man?
