Range 30 feet; Targets 1 creature whose true name you know
Saving Throw Will; Duration varies
You instruct the target to do something, compelling obedience by calling it by its true name. Your instructions can't be self-destructive. Though this spell has the linguistic trait, this applies only to the instructions; the creature doesn't need to know its own true name to be affected. The target must attempt a Will saving throw.

Critical Success The target is unaffected, is temporarily immune to further castings of this spell by you for 1 week, and learns your true name.
Success The target is unaffected, is temporarily immune to further castings of this spell by you for 1 day, and learns a fragment of your true name (see the Fragmentary Names sidebar).
Failure The target does as you command. The spell has a duration of 10 minutes, or until the target has completed a finite instruction or the instructions become self-destructive. The creature is temporarily immune to further castings of this spell by you for 1 hour.
Critical Failure As failure, but the spell's duration is 8 hours, and the creature is not temporarily immune.
