    Default Power word, Smile [Spell]

    Power word: Smile
    (I forgot what school other power words are)

    Level: 0 Bard, 1 Sor/Wiz
    Components: V
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: 25ft+5ft/level
    Duration: 1 round
    Saving Throw: None*

    An amusing cantrip thats power links in to the deadly words of power uttered by only the most powerful of wizards and sorcerers. Upon speaking the verbal component (Ironicly, it is "Cheese") the subject of the spell is suddenly compelled to give a cheerful smile. This spell can only effect those who can smile, eg. the spell can make a half rotten zombie give a cheesy grin, or a feral yaun-ti smile with glee but it can't make a creature, such as a golem grind his gears trying to smile.

    The only combat use of this spell is to disrupt casters. A spellcaster under the effect of this spell has 10% chance to fail the intricate verbal components of spellcasting, likewise a bard attempting to sing or chant or any other verbal based task has the same 10% chance of failure.

    * Those who do not identify that the caster is using a spell on them (Spellcraft check) make a will save, if they pass, they understand that they are being forced to smile, If they fail, they beleive they are smiling upon their own free will.

    I can think of a few other uses for it.

    Bard slips a Silent power word smile in after Diplomatic talks with the orc cheiftan, The orc thinks "Hmm *grin* This idea sound good."

    Or messing with the paladin.

    The level of the spell you go after the list for which the spell is on. You also need to add emo-kid as the example of creature unable to smile.

    I'd make it a cantrip for all classes, it isn't nearly powerful enough to bother taking as a 1st-level spell.

    I'm pretty sure it wasn't the dark lord doing the slapping.

    more like the fighter/straight-man.

    This is a real beast of a spell.
    doth thou desire to aid in the production of a power word spell of every level? and then make a power word domain.

    Granted Power: You gain a +3 bonus to all interaction checks made using only one word. I.E "Look!" (points off in the distance) for a +3 to bluff made to create a diverson.

    Heehee, fun. I'm also suggest you make it sor/wiz 0, too weak for a level one spell.

    That's a cute spell.

    Also, goths only smile when they are cutting themselves.
