Glibness was a transmutation spell that altered the caster's speech, making his or her elocution much more convincing and believable.[2]


The caster of this spell was blessed with an agility of speech that greatly increased the chance that a bluff would succeed. It even made magical means of detecting or preventing lies,[5] such as discern lies, or a zone of truth, difficult and more likely to fail. The silver tongue ability lasted for 10 minutes per experience level of the caster.[2]


Only a somatic component was required to cast this spell, making it very subtle.[2]
