I'm sure I can think of something to use instead of a sunrod.
Illyahr's Mind-scattering Rave
Sandbox Goliath (Strike) [Funky, Mind-Affecting, Compulsion]
Prerequisites: 3 Sandbox Goliath maneuvers.
Initiation Action: Standard action.
Area: 15-ft radius burst centered on you.
Duration: 1 minute.
Saving Throw: Will negates.
You dance about, your blade flashing and flowing with neon colored light. As you weave this light it draws in the minds of onlookers pulling them in only to shatter them.
When you initiate this maneuver your weapon begins to glow with a strange light, weaving it about you fascinate opponents. You produce bright illumination in your square when you initiate this maneuver and are visible from up to 300-ft of darkness; this light only lasts during your turn. Any creature other than yourself within the area which can see must make a Will save (17 + Cha3.5 or Initiation ModifierPF) or be confused for 1 minute. Creatures in bright illumination gain a +4 on their saves, those in shadowy suffer a -2 penalty. Total magical darkness blocks this effect. This is a supernatural, mind-affecting maneuver.
