Friends was an arcane enchantment spell that could influence the mood of a creature in favor of the caster.[2]

Effects[]

While the caster concentrated, for up to one minute, the target creature became more inclined to believe, be persuaded or otherwise influenced by the caster. Once the effect of the spell wore off, the target creature immediately realized that magic was used to influence its mood, and could react violently.[2]

Components[]

The spell needed somatic and material components. As the material component, a bit of makeup was applied to the caster's face,[2] but this could be replaced by the use of an arcane focus.[8]

History[]

The spell was attributed to Netherese arcanist Keonid in −1890 DR and was originally known as Keonid's friendship.[1]
