When you cast this spell, you dictate one specific topic or recent event and instill a magical obsession with that subject within the target. An affected creature becomes fascinated by the topic, and becomes completely focused on discussing the event with anyone nearby, possibly wandering off or distracting unaffected creatures.
Passing fancy has no effect on a creature with an Intelligence of 2 or less.
Because the target talks and interacts with its usual cadence, onlookers take a –10 penalty on Sense Motive checks to notice that anything is amiss with the target’s behavior.
This spell functions as per passing fancy except as noted.
