performances have power over creatures far beyond what mortal bards can accomplish.
Prerequisites: Perform 40 ranks.
Benefit: When the deity sings, plays a musical instrument, tells jokes, recites verse,
or engages in any other type of performance as a full-round action, the deity
has the option to create any of the following effects. The deity can use this
ability a number of times per day equal to its divine rank. It affects up to
one creature per divine rank within a burst with a radius of 10 feet per divine
rank, centered on the deity.
creatures become unable to take actions; instead, they dance, observe the performance
with rapt attention, laugh, or applaud at the deitys option. The affected
creatures also suffer a 4 penalty to Armor Class, cannot succeed at Reflex
saves (except on a roll of 20), and cannot use shields. Creatures can resist
this mind effect with a successful Will save (DC 10 + the deitys Charisma modifier + the deitys divine rank). The effects last for as long as the
deity performs and for up to 1 round per divine rank thereafter.
creatures become blissfully calm. They are immune to fear and compulsion effects
except for those created by deities of higher rank than the performing deity
and any such effects already operating on affected creatures are countered and
dispelled. This ability also counters and dispels rage effects except for those
created by deities of higher rank than the performing deity. Immunity to fear
and compulsion last for as long as the deity performs and for up to 1 round
per divine rank thereafter.
creatures fall asleep. This works like the sleep spell, except that any living creature can be affected. Creatures can resist
this mind effect with Will saves (DC 10 + the deitys Charisma modifier + the deitys divine rank). Affected creatures sleep for up to
1 hour per divine rank or until awakened. The deity can end the effect at will.
creatures are so deeply moved that they simply die. Only living creatures with
Hit Dice equal to or less than the deitys divine rank are affected. Creatures
can resist the effect with Fortitude saves (DC 10 + the deitys Charisma modifier + the deitys divine rank).
Once a creature
makes a successful save against one of the deitys performances, the creature
cannot be affected again for one day.
all deities with this ability can create all the mentioned effects, as specified
in the deity descriptions.
Portfolio Elements: Art, bards,
beauty, dance, love, music, poetry.
