This masterwork lute appears like a completely ordinary lute until used to perform bardic music. When played as part of a bardic performance this lute offers special options based upon which bardic performance is played.
Inspire Courage: You may sing a paean of praise, focusing your bardic music upon just one target other than yourself. The morale bonus granted to that creature is increased by 2, but other allies gain no benefit from your song.
Inspire Competence: The competence bonus granted to the target is increased by +2 but only so long as they are not receiving any benefits from Aid Another.
Inspire Greatness: You may focus your bardic music upon just one target. For every target beyond the first you would normally have the bonus hit dice, and competence bonuses granted increase by +1.
Inspire Heroics: You may focus your bardic music upon just one target. For every target beyond the first you would normally have the bonuses increase by +2.
Prerequisites: Craft Wondrous Item, ability to Inspire Greatness, Perform 15 ranks, Heroism
Cost to Create: 7,500 GP and 600 XP Apparently having no frelling clue how to price something makes me True Neutral, who knew?
