    Well i keep seeing the posts saying bards need more how about song spell book type thing or more magical instruments then it just dawned on me hehe

    The Music boxes Littering the world could get a revamping with special affects added to your music depending which song you have playing in the music box so say you have a comon tune playing and try to disco that monster but it also adds a curse spell at same time same thing with provoke.. different songs playing give different bouns say +/-% success with peace disco provoke when playing said song on the box. And perhaps greater abilitys on uncomon and rare music trax.. or how about one song that if you use area peace will heal everything and everyone with a heal spell... Just Spitballing idea's be neet to hear others

    I'd be happy with new tunes, let alone a song book. :D

    Each instrument has only one tune (two if you count fails), no matter which skill you use. There could be four tunes per instrument, one for each of the skills..



    Anyway.. the song books would be good. Perhaps having two or three secondary skills in combination could unlock certain songs with particular effects. Maybe..

    Peace + Provoke = Confusion: monster ignores players
    Discord + Provoke = Berserk: increases monster attack/lowers defence
    Discord + Peace = Despair: lowers monster swing speed/stops spellcasting
    Peace + Discord + Provoke = Cacophony: area effect, drives monsters away

    Each would be ongoing until broken by attacks, failed provokes, loss of line of sight, etc.. strength based on average of the skills needed..
     
  3. I love the idea of a song book!

    Make songs that you have to quest to find, rather than just have them on NPC vendors. (Maybe make them craftable?)

    Make the books craftable, with special properties available on the books, like spell books.

    Songs should include:

    - debuff song - works like curse
    - buff song - works like bless
    - cure song - cures poison
    - healing song - works like heal
    - damage songs - not sure how to approach this, but there should be multiple types
    - luck songs - adds a small amount of luck to target or a group

    Make it so that these songs do not replace mage spells. They should have much lesser effects than magery has. The books could increase one or more of these.

    And fc/fcr type ratings to insturments that allow these to take effect slower or faster...and increase/decrease the delay between uses of them and the current skills we have (Provo, Disco, Peace).

    Also, it would be really neat if every song we played had a different actual sound that plays with them, as well as the skills too.
