Lullabye uses the powerful persuasion of a bards singing voice in an attempt to lull a single target, usually a creature, to sleep. Depending upon the hidden endroll, the target may experience varying degrees of drowsiness, react more slowly than normal, be calmed, sit, or fall completely asleep, becoming prone. Undead and demon type creatures are significantly more resistant to this spell's effects, being both more likely to resist outright and unable to suffer the more significant effects.

Once affected, attacking the target regain consciousness, but the slow effect will remain for a short duration.

Lullabye is not renewable and not stackable upon itself.

Formula

The exact formula below was provided by GM Estild:

[(Caster level * 5) + Bard Base ranks + caster Influence bonus + d150]
minus
[(Target level * 5) + (target level / 2) + target Discipline bonus + 25 from Self Control (613) + 25 from Strength of Will (1119) + 30 for undead or demonic creatures]

If the end result is ≥ 0, it's successful. There are 4 success tiers, which is determined by the [(end result / 40) + 1] (min. 1, max. 4), with undead and demonic creatures also adding 1 (for rounding), but then reducing the result by half.

Magical Items and Scrolls

Lullabye (1005) has increased effect with Bard Base spell ranks.

If cast from a magic item or a scroll, the effective spell rank is determined by the larger of either the user's natively trained Bard Base spell ranks, or a phantom spell rank calculated based on Magic Item Use or Arcane Symbols, respectively. This calculated rank is identical for all activation verbs.

Semi-Profession Effective Spell Rank (MIU/AS)
0.25 per MIU/AS rank up to caster level
0.165 per MIU/AS rank up to 2x caster level
0.05 per MIU/AS rank above 2x caster level
