Campaign Design - Spells: Compelling Question (Shakedown)

Compelling Question (Shakedown) (found in the Book of Roguish Luck)
Enchantment (Compulsion)[Language-Dependent, Mind-Affecting]

Level: Gutter Mage 1, Shadowsworn 1
Components: V
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Close (25 feet + 5 feet per 2 caster levels)
Target, Effect, or Area: One creature
Duration: Instantaneous
Saving Throw: Will negates
Spell Resistance: Yes

You ask another creature one simple question that it can answer with a single word. On the subject's next turn, as a free action, it answers you as truthfully as possible. The DM is free to assign modifiers to the saving throw based on how important the target considers the information to be. Asking someone whether she is the king's murderer, for example, involves a closely guarded secret, and may earn a trained assassin a +4 competence bonus on the save.
