The Dance of Kindled Desires (Dance)

Each sway and shake of your hips calls up another temptation from the depths of Hell until your spectator, hapless and drooling, finally succumbs and freely offers up his life, honor, or very soul for just a taste of what you have proffered.

Prerequisite: Perform (dance) 5 ranks.

Cost: Feat or 2nd-level bard spell known.

Effect: Your dance entices one creature within 30 feet that is able to see you, invoking every imaginable vice and craving until finally the desire the creature personally finds most appealing overwhelms its thoughts. You always know what your target wants, and, if you have the means to provide it, can offer it to the creature in exchange for a specific service. The creature can resist this effect with a successful Will saving throw, and creatures never agree if you offer services that are physically impossible or obviously suicidal, or if you lie about having the means to fulfill the desire in question. The service can never take more than a day to complete, and the affected creature gains a +2 bonus on its saving throw if the service requires more than an hour to complete.

Use: 3 bardic performance rounds.

Action: 3 full rounds.
