Ancients’ Flight (Oratory)

You compel dragons to recite an epic poem telling the story of their race’s creation.

Prerequisite(s): Perform (oratory) 13 ranks, ability to speak Draconic.

Cost: Feat or 5th-level bard spell known.

Effect: This urgent verse tugs at the racial arrogance of dragonkind, compelling dragons, both true and lesser, to perform the epic alongside you. Any creatures of the dragon type that can hear this masterpiece must succeed at a Will save or be compelled to join in the performance. Affected dragons cannot use their mouths to attack or even speak except to recite Ancients’ Flight, preventing them from using their bite attacks and breath weapons, casting spells with vocal components, or otherwise communicating vocally for the duration of the performance. The effect ceases as soon as you end your bardic performance.

Use: 2 bardic performance rounds per round.

Activation: 1 full round.
