The Dragon and the First King (String, Wind)


You affect the mood of listeners by celebrating the defeat of the father of all dragons.

Prerequisite(s): Perform (string) or Perform (wind) 6 ranks.

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

Effect: This stirring pibroch reminds dragons of a significant victory by one of the legendary heroes of their kind and fills lesser races with a feeling of frustration and rage. Any creature of the dragon type that hears the entire performance must succeed at a Will save to avoid having her attitude toward the performer and his allies improved by two steps (from Hostile to Indifferent, for example).

A creature of any other type (apart from the bard and his allies) must succeed at a Will save to avoid having her attitude toward the performer and his allies worsened by two steps (from Indifferent to Hostile, for example).

These effects last for 1 minute per bard level, or until he or his comrades do anything to worsen the mood of the dragon, or improve the mood of those affected otherwise. Multiple uses of this masterpiece cannot improve or worsen attitudes more than two steps.

Use: 2 bardic performance rounds.

Activation: 2 full rounds.
