You alter the target’s emotions and perceptions concerning a particular creature or topic, which can be as specific as “Vindaskayo Swarmripper, the current High Despot of the Veskarium” or as general as “technology.” The target’s attitude toward the chosen topic improves or worsens (your choice); the number of steps the target’s attitude changes is determined by the spell’s level (below). For example, you could use a 1st-level change attitude to improve the attitude of a target that’s normally indifferent toward AbadarCorp to make it friendly instead.
This spell doesn’t enable the target to be controlled as if it were an automaton, nor does it influence the target’s behavior in any way beyond its attitude. The target can discriminate between general creatures, topics, and individuals based on its experiences; for example, a vesk influenced by this spell to have a better attitude toward humans might begin with a friendly attitude toward all humans they meet, but if an individual human gravely insulted the target’s honor, their attitude can (and likely would) adjust to unfriendly or hostile toward that individual—and if the target was attacked by humans, the vesk would fight back.
1st: The spell adjusts the target’s attitude by one step.
2nd: The spell adjusts the target’s attitude by two steps.
3rd: The spell adjusts the target’s attitude by three steps.
4th: The spell adjusts the target’s attitude by four steps.
