Casting Time 10 minutes
Target one living creature
Saving Throw none; Spell Resistance no
This spell functions similarly to lesser geas, except that it affects a creature of any HD and allows no saving throw. If the subject is prevented from obeying the geas/quest for 24 hours, it takes a -3 penalty to each of its ability scores. Each day, another -3 penalty accumulates, up to a total of -12. No ability score can be reduced to less than 1 by this effect. The ability score penalties are removed 24 hours after the subject resumes obeying the geas/quest. A geas/quest (and all ability score penalties) can be ended by the cross spell only if its caster level is at least two higher than your caster level. Dispel does not affect a lesser geas.
