Melody of Pain
Level: Brd 3, Illustree 3
Components: V, (F)
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 30 ft. radius spread centered on you
Target/Area/Effect: All enemies within range
Duration: Concentration up to one round/level
Saving Throw: Will partial (see text)
Spell Resistance: Yes
When you sing the melody of pain you cause all enemies within a 30 foot radius of you suffer terrible pain as you sing. Enemy combatants within the area of effect suffer 1d4 per caster levels (maximum 10d4) points of subdual damage, a -2 circumstance penalty to all attacks and checks, and may only move at one-half speed. A successful Will saving throw reduces subdual damage by one-half, negates circumstance penalties to attacks and checks, and allows the affected creature to move freely within the area of effect. Creatures attempting to leave the area of affect or move away from you do not suffer a reduction in speed but are otherwise still affected by the spell.
Focus: Use of an instrument with this spell is not necessary for spell completion, but does increase the save DC by +2.
