(M) Musician

  • Attribute:  Influence
  • Type:  Utility
  • Time:  N/A
  • Description:  Those with this skill are accomplished artists who are able to compose and play a number of songs and participate more fully in combat. It is a passive skill that provides the character with access to all six (E) Minstrel songs, and allows them to take attack actions during combat, without breaking the rhythm and ending the song. All other aspects of the (E) Minstrel skill remain unchanged. In addition, with a successful skill check, they are able to improvise music for entertainment or distraction at will, drawing a number of people up to the skill rank (assuming there are that many people in range) increasing the NPC reactions to the character by one level, i.e. hostile to unfriendly, neutral to friendly, etc. If the skill check fails, additional attempts may be made at a progressive difficult (-4) modifier, but after three fails, additional attempts may not be made again in that area.
  • Prerequisites:  The (E) Minstrel skill and eight skill points in Performance
