Cone of Silence

School abjuration; Level bard 3, sorcerer/wizard 3

CASTING

Casting Time 1 action
Components V, S, F (a small tuning fork)

EFFECT

Range personal or close (25 ft. + 5 ft./level)
Target you or one creature
Duration 10 minutes/level
Saving Throw Reflex negates; Spell Resistance yes

DESCRIPTION

An invisible mobile zone of silence surrounds the caster. The spell functions by bending all types of noise and sound around the caster, yet still allows the caster to hear herself speak.

Because the spell stops all sound, it provides complete protection from all sonic- and language-based attacks. Conversely, the envelope of the spell prevents a protected mage from launching any sonic- or language-based attacks but does not otherwise inhibit spellcasting. Unlike radius-effect silence spells, those around the caster can hear normally. Enveloped targets are considered deafened (though they can hear themselves} and cannot produce any sounds.

If used to envelop another being, the target receives a Reflex saving throw to negate the effect. If the saving throw fails, then the target is enveloped and suffers from the above effects.

Cone of Silence, Greater

School abjuration; Level bard 5, sorcerer/wizard 5

CASTING

Casting Time 1 action
Components V, S, F (tuning fork)

EFFECT

Range medium (100 ft. + 10 ft./level)
Area hemisphere with radius of up to 1 ft./level or wall of area up to one 10-ft. square/level
Duration 10 minutes/level
Saving Throw none; Spell Resistance yes

DESCRIPTION

An invisible barrier stops all sounds from reaching those so protected.

Greater cone of silence has two options in the form that it takes, either creating a hemisphere or a wall in a location specified by the caster. If a hemisphere is selected, then the caster has the option of moving it at a rate of 10 feet per round. Furthermore, the caster need not be in the spell’s area. If the wall option is selected, the wall must completely seal off and separate the area into which it is cast. If the area of the wall version cannot completely fill the space into which it is cast, then sound escapes around it and the spell fails.

Both versions of this spell function similarly to the lower level cone of silence by bending all types of noise and sound away from it. Likewise, both created barriers stop all normal sounds from passing from one side to the other and also therefore provide for complete protection from all sonic and language-based attacks. Likewise, either version prevents a mage from launching any sonic- or language-based attacks against an opponent on the other side of the barrier, but it does not otherwise inhibit spellcasting.
