Thorn (thinking): “Compulsion.”
Now bring up the Ceannic-language version of the page . . .
A type of bodily function spell, typically ensorcelled on a subdermal microchip.
Compulsions act to change a subject’s behavior. Although the spell cannot directly force a subject’s actions or change their thoughts, it provides an incentive by stimulating pain receptors when a specified condition is not met.
Historically, these spells have been used to manage problems like addiction, compulsive behaviors, and harmful sexual proclivities.
Thorn (thinking): Harsh. I can imagine why someone would choose that method as a last resort, but . . .
Because of the general ethical concerns and the potential for abuse, compulsions are now super duper illegal in Ceannis. Seriously. Don’t even try it.
Thorn (thinking): . . . yeah, that’s what I thought. Different country, very different standards.
