Song of Discord

School enchantment (compulsion) [mind-affecting, sonic]; Level bard 5

CASTING

Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S

EFFECT

Range medium (100 ft. + 10 ft./level)
Area creatures within a 20-ft.-radius spread
Duration 1 round/level
Saving Throw Will negates; Spell Resistance yes

DESCRIPTION

This spell causes those within the area to turn on each other rather than attack their foes. Each affected creature has a 50% chance to attack the nearest target each round. (Roll to determine each creature’s behavior every round at the beginning of its turn.) A creature that does not attack its nearest neighbor is free to act normally for that round. Creatures forced by a song of discord to attack their fellows employ all methods at their disposal, choosing their deadliest spells and most advantageous combat tactics. They do not, however, harm targets that have fallen unconscious.

Song of Discord, Greater

School enchantment (compulsion) [mind-affecting, sonic]; Level bard 6, mesmerist 6, psychic 8
Saving Throw Will partial; Spell Resistance yes

DESCRIPTION

This spell functions as song of discord except that affected creatures automatically attack the nearest target each round.

In addition, all affected creatures gain a +4 morale bonus to Strength for the duration of the spell. A creature that succeeds at the Will save reduces the effect’s duration to 1 round.
