Song of Peace creates a minor sanctuary where all creatures and players are held passive due to the soothing rhythmic sounds of the song. While this spell is in effect, most creatures will avoid entering the area of the spell. Persons or creatures that are in the area will not be able to attack or steal from others.

Any unfriendly creature in the room above the caster's level will contribute (based on level difference) to the failure chance of the spell. Additionally, any unfriendly creatures in the room that are equal to or less than the caster's level (but no more than 10 levels below the caster's) will contribute a small amount to the failure chance of the spell. Training in Mental Lore, Telepathy will reduce the failure chance of the spell.

Minor demons are beasts of chaos that are capable of interfering with a Song of Peace. Imps can even break existing sanctuaries created by Song of Peace, forcing the Bard to stop singing their song. Training in the Bard Base circle and Mental Lore, Telepathy can help the Bard prevent a demon from interfering with or breaking his or her sanctuary.

A sanctuary will prematurely end shortly after the Bard leaves the room in which the spell was cast. Bards may renew Song of Peace to create a new sanctuary in the current room.

Lore Benefit
