It is said that a talented bard can charm the very air to respond to his music, and with this large, silver-etched lute that is certainly true. The etchings on the lute are stylized weather images, like lightning bolts and clouds and raindrops. When playing this lute and performing well (DC 20 Performance check) the bard has the power to alter the weather around him as if he had cast the spell control weather. He can only manipulate the weather by playing the appropriate music, however powerful, violent music for thunderstorms; slow, sad music for a gentle rain;gentle, soothing music for a soft breeze. The weather instantly reverts to normal when the bard stops playing. The lute functions in this way once per day.
