Maligned Performance

Maligned Performance


Components: V, S, M (a broken mirror and an asp’s tongue)

Magma Eruption

Casting Time: 1 action

Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute

Range: 30 ft.

Area of Effect: 1 creature

Saving Throw: Wis / negates effect

You cause a creature’s performance to go subtly wrong, whilst shielding it from awareness of the spell. The targeted creature must make a Wisdom saving throw. If the saving throw fails, it subtracts 1d6 from its Charisma (Performance) checks and Charisma checks using musical instruments, and it is unable to benefit from tactical advantage on those checks. It can’t use any ability that would allow rerolls on these checks because it is unaware that the performance is going poorly.

The spell ends if the performer gets inescapable evidence of his or her bad performance, such as most of an audience getting up and leaving in disgust or being pelted with rotten tomatoes.
