I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

@ObliviousSage I disagree, see Good Subjective, Bad Subjective. The only good answers to a question like this are those with direct experience. I specifically retooled his question to ask in that specific way because it's the right way for SE. Random opinions are not expert, expertise is expert.

I'm sure she doesn't need to be at a ball 24x7, that's a stand-in for a general genre.; edited tags; edited tags

Do they need to be one of the "big 5" races? Do they need to level along with the PCs or can they be higher? What other restrictions exist? Why mind-affecting, is this so the party doesn't control them or some external threat? Why would your party be exerting mental control over their comrades, are they evil? Is this guy supposed to betray them at some point to where he has meaningful secrets?

comment What's the likely law enforcement response to my PCs in Nidal?
It looks like they may have caught another break in that I rolled a random encounter while they camped atop the grave site; there may be a lot of third party corpses involved soon that could provide some plausible deniability (no need to cast more spells, looks like they killed a brace of bad guys but they must have been overcome by the rest, killed and buried... Dang this is a lot of intestines)
