The Tragedy of False Hope (Oratory, Sing)

You remind those around you of how danger was ignored in expectation of a gods return.

Prerequisite: Perform (oratory) or Perform (sing) 4 ranks.

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

Effect: You create a feeling of deceptive confidence in an enemy. When you activate this performance, one target within 30 feet becomes flat-footed for as long as you maintain the performance (Will negates). If you target a creature that has not yet acted in a surprise round, the creature does not get to act in the surprise round. Any target with the uncanny dodge class feature or an ability with a similar effect is immune to this performance. This is a mind-affecting emotion effect.

Use: 1 bardic performance round per round.

Action: 1 standard action.
