Piercing Shriek

School enfeebling; Level bard 2


Casting Time 1 standard action


Range 30 ft.
Target 1d4 creatures
Duration 1 round/level
Saving Throw Fortitude negates; Spell Resistance yes


You emit an ear-splitting shriek which can be heard only by the target of this song; all other observers merely see you screaming silently. The target suffers wracking pain from the scream, gaining the Staggered status effect. This song has no effect on deaf creatures and cannot penetrate an area of silence.

Staggered: A staggered creature may take a single move action or standard action each round (but not both, nor can he take full-round actions). A staggered creature can still take free, swift, and immediate actions. A creature with nonlethal damage exactly equal to its current hit points gains the staggered condition.
