Sunday Spell: Moment of Tranquility

Casting Time 1 standard action
Range close (25 ft +5 ft. / 2 levels)

Duration instantaneous
Saving throw: Will negates; Spell Resistance: yes

While using bardic performance, you can cast this spell to make creatures believe that your performance has quieted the raging battlefield. These creatures take no offensive actions for 1 round (as if affected by calm emotions). In addition, as they are transported by thoughts of peace far from the battlefield, they take a -1 penalty to attack and damage rolls for the rest of the encounter.

Notes

This spell is an attempt to make an interesting and effective second-level illusion spell for bards that uses a DC and contributes to the party in a significant way.

Also, welcome back to your regularly scheduled dose of Gaming Mage! Hopefully we shall proceed with fewer interruptions from now on.
