The enemy of my enemy is my puppet.

You influence the actions of the target creature by suggesting a course of activity (limited to a sentence or two). The suggestion must be worded in such a manner as to make the activity sound harmful to a creature they are hostile or unfriendly towards. Asking the creature to do some obviously suicidal act automatically negates the effect of the maneuver.

The suggested course of activity can continue for the entire duration. If the suggested activity can be completed in a shorter time, the maneuver ends when the subject finishes what it was asked to do. You can instead specify conditions that will trigger a special activity during the duration. If the condition is not met before the maneuver duration expires, the activity is not performed.

If the suggestion seems to pose no harm whatsoever to the target, they get a -2 penalty on their save. If the suggestion poses any risk of death, they get a +6 bonus on their save.
