This spell allows a cleric to issue a single word command. The target must understand the word in the language which it was spoken and have heard. If successful the target must obey to the best of their ability. The command word must be completely clear and not something such as a noun. An example would be the word "suicide". The target would ignore the command. The command "Die!" would cause the target to be in a stunned state for 1 round. Commands often are: back, halt, flee, go, run, stop, fall, fly, go, leave, surrender, sleep, rest, etc. Targets with certain intelligence levels or greater than a set amount of hit dice are allowed a saving throw to resist the spell.
