Play Instrument/Sing includes any performance ability. When the performer plays, sings, or otherwise performs for the party, they gain a long lasting morale bonus from the invigorating performance. This bonus increases with level. Performance arts don’t make a huge difference in combat, but they can help to boost the party’s morale on long, grueling journeys to keep moving day after day. A little extra morale can also help when a fight gets long and fatigue sets in. A little song before a battle can give your combatants the edge they need. Examples of characters and creatures with Play Instrument/Sing in their build:
- Magus Lilt-This Saytr Bard is 100% a support character, daily morale boosts are only a small part of his arsenal.
- Lysle Hittite-This tavern bard at the Rusty Tankard is always in a good mood, getting to play every night. He might give a little boost to travelers coming through too. It bet he takes requests, if you behave.
- Fordi and Filmen Deeger-These Halfling twins both play, I bet the GM would give a little bonus to the ability when they perform together.
- Brass Dragons-These dragons mostly sing for their own benefit, but they might be bought off to sing your army to sleep every night at the right price.
