Zone of Deceit

Zone of Deceit
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-Affecting], [Chaos Domain]
Level: Bard 2, Cleric 2, Rogue Caster 2
Components: V, S, DF
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Area: 20-ft.-radius emanation
Duration: 1 min./level
Saving Throw: Will negates
Spell Resistance: Yes

Creatures within the emanation area (or those who enter it) must speak any and every deliberate and intentional lies that they can in response to the conversation at hand. Each potentially affected creature is allowed a save to avoid the effects when the spell is cast or when the creature first enters the emanation area. Affected creatures are aware of this enchantment. Therefore, they may avoid answering questions to which they would normally respond with the truth, or they may be evasive as long as they remain outside the boundaries of the truth. Creatures who leave the area are free to speak as they choose.

This spell is often used by evil clerics, rogues, bards, and others who consider themselves above or below the law.
