Campaign Design - Spells: Paraphasic Pianissimo

Paraphasic Pianissimo (found in Spells & Spellcraft)
Enchantment [Mind-Affecting, Sonic]

Level: Bard 3
Components: V
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: 60 feet
Target, Effect, or Area: 60-foot-radius circle centered on you
Duration: Concentration
Saving Throw: Will negates (see text)
Spell Resistance: Yes

The soft, lulling melody of this magical song created a zone in a 60-foot-radius around you in which your enemies suffer from paraphasia, a condition which causes spoken words to be jumbled or used inappropriately. Each round within the area of effect, intelligible speech can occur within the radius only if the enemy succeeds at a Will save. This limitation affects spellcasters in a terrible way. A failed Will save disrupts the casting of any spell with a verbal component just as if the spellcaster were struck in combat and failed a Concentration check. A spellcaster who fails their initial Will save can make an additional save for each spell they cast, until they either succeed or the spell's duration ends.
