This skill allows the player to break down an intelligent mob and enslave them.
Once enslaved, a mob can be sold to slave traders, brought to the players clan
homes or personal homes to remain as permanent residents, ORDERed as vassals of
the owner, and, of course, command them to perform tasks.  Tasks for the slave
to perform must be directed to the slave with the SAY command, and must begin
with the words "I command you to" or "I order you to".  The slave will then
wander around as in a GEAS trying to perform the task.  The slave can be
released from the task by saying "cancel" to them.  Slaves are different from
pets in that they require food and drink to survive.  If given the food and
water, they will eat and drink as necessary from what they have been given. 
Slaves eventually lose loyalty as well.  If they starve, or if they take damage
for any reason, their loyalty will decrease, making them more and more likely
to leave their masters homes, or attack their masters.

This is an archon skill to assist in determining if a set of players who are

circumstantial evidence of someone multiplaying.  The definition of the numbers
are as follows:
SYNC - The number of commands entered by more than one member of an IP group
within a single 4 second period. 
SPEECH - This refers to SAY commands, broken into three sections.  The first
number represents the number of SAY commands done in the same room with a
player who has the same IP address.  The second number represents the number of
SAY commands directed at another player.  The last number is the number of SAY
commands total.
SOCIALS - These are also divided into three numbers where, again, the first is
the number of socials in the same room with a player with the same IP, the
second being socials directed at another player, and the last being the number
of total socials.
CMD - The number of commands entered which are different than the previous
command entered.
ORDER - The number of times one of the players in the group gave an ORDER to
another player in the group.  A sure sign indeed.
