Campaign Design - Spells: Fearsome Fortissimo

Fearsome Fortissimo (found in Spells & Spellcraft)
Enchantment [Fear, Mind-Affecting, Sonic]

Level: Bard 3
Components: V
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: 20 feet
Target, Effect, or Area: 20-foot-radius circle around you
Duration: Concentration
Saving Throw: Will negates
Spell Resistance: Yes

This loud verse, sung with great energy and confidence, induces fear in all enemies within a 20-foot radius for as long as you sing. All hostile creatures entering the radius must make a Will save or become panicked. Panicked creatures suffer a -2 morale penalty on saving throws and flee. A panicked creature has a 50% chance to drop what it is holding, and chooses its path randomly (as long as it is away from known danger). If cornered, a panicked creature cowers. The fear effect lasts for 1 round for each level of the caster. A hostile creature, even one who had previously succeeded at its Will save, who leaves and reenters the area of effect must make a Will save to avoid the fear effect.
