Song of Rage stimulates memories of anger in the target, causing it to become enraged and attack with full force. As a natural side effect, the caster becomes the focus of the target's anger. A single target will go to a fully offensive stance and try to attack the singer relentlessly for the song's duration. The singer must be visible in the room, and the creature may occasionally give up and walk away if it has no chance to hit the singer.

Renewal Cost

4 MP. The song must be manually renewed via RENEW 1016. Multiple renewals on a single target will stack, forcing the creature to become more and more enraged, and adding additional roundtime to the target. Renewals are not subject to the warding check, only the initial cast.

Continuing Effect

While the Song is affecting a target it will continue to suffer periodic roundtime additions even if the Bard makes no further renewals. These effects trigger approximately every 25 seconds, are visible in the target's "Spell Active" listing, and can be of any of the listed levels of effect (see chart below, tiers 1 through 5).

Lore Benefits

Mental Lore, Telepathy: Can increase the level of rage caused. The potential increase is up to one level of rage at 5 Telepathy ranks, two levels at 15 Telepathy ranks, three levels at 30 Telepathy ranks, and four levels at 50 Telepathy ranks.
