Strings made of Darkmantle
hide resemble a supple, dark-coloured leather and are as rare as the beasts
from which they are taken. Though they provide no bonuses to the Perform
skill, or to any abilities linked to bardic music, Darkmantle
hide strings have saved the lives of more than a few bards who have taken up
a life of adventuring. Properly prepared and alchemically treated, Darkmantle
hide strings offer the bard playing an instrument strung with them a portion
of the creatures most impressive power. When played, an instrument with
Darkmantle hide strings produces a low
vibration, inaudible and imperceptible to anyone but the musician. This vibration
gives the bard playing the instrument a limited amount of Blindsight, allowing
him to see through the Blindsight out to a range of 30 feet. This
ability lasts only so long as the instrument is played; the moment the music
stops, so does the Blindsight.
