Enchantment is one of the eight schools of magic recognized on Golarion. It deals with influencing the minds of others, either by subtly charming them to get them to like you, or through compulsion, which exerts a more overt control over the subject.[1] Wizards who specialize in enchantment magics are known as enchanters.[2] Very perceptive individuals can discern whether someone is under the influence of an enchantment spell. Those targeted by compulsions are generally more obvious in this regard than those affected by a charm spell.[3] Elven minds seem to be particuarly resistant to enchantment magics.[4] The god Asmodeus is often associated with enchantments and enchanters of all kinds, and is often worshiped by the less wholesome ones.[5][6]

Notable enchanters[]

  • Runelord Sorshen: The Runelord of Lust of the ancient Thassilonian Empire was one of the most powerful enchanters the world has ever known.[7] Even though she has been absent for over 10,000 years, her influence can still be felt in the Varisian city of Korvosa. Built on the site of her ancient capital, Xin-Cyrusian, the magical college known as the Academae produces a disproportionately high number of enchantment specialists. In addition, every five to six years, the latent energies inherent in the site will produce an enchanter with powers far beyond his or her experience.[8]
