This spell creates phantasmal voices that call out for the target to follow them. The sounds can be heard by all within 30 ft. of the target, but the spell only directly affects the target. The target is compelled to follow the voices, unless he makes a successful Will save. If the target's life is in danger, meaning that an enemy attacks him, he can suppress the urge to follow the voices and engage in combat instead. If his allies are in danger, he must make a second Will save, as the phantasmal voices try to convince him that they will be okay. If he succeeds at this second save, the spell ends. Furthermore, while influenced by this spell, the target takes a -4 penalty to Perception checks.

The caster directs the voices each round, using a swift action. They can move outside the range of the spell, 30 ft. each round.
