Range: Close (LoS)

Area of Effect: Special

Duration: 1 month/2 levels

Saving Throw: Morale negates

Spell Resistance: Yes

Description: A group of drummers and their drums will be enchanted. These drums can only be of the biggest kind available, like Japanese Kodo drums which can have a diameter of up to 1.5 m. The players of these drums can once per battle play a special hymn which strikes fear in the hearts of the enemy

Spell Effect: All enemy units that can hear the drumming (generally all those on the battlefield) make a morale check immediately; failure means fleeing the battlefield altogether. Units that make it can fight on like normal. Those units that flee will scatter and it takes at least a full week up to 2 weeks until they are regrouped and can be used for a new battle in an army. The effects of this spell can be used as long as the period for which the spell was cast, but only once per battle.
