Dirge of Doom


Rules Questions

Dedicated Voter 2013

Coldn't find an answer using the search function so I will ask the question.

Do victims of the Bardic Perormance ability Dirge of doom receive a save (DC10+1/2 bard level+cha mod) to prevent being shaken, or is this a no save ability.

Seems to me a save should be aloud but RAW is silent on the matter.

Thanks

No save. Think about the level at which the bard gets it, the limits of its use, and the status that being shaken imparts: Sounds about right to me.


Well in the corerulebook there is no mention of a save, and all the other bardic music effects have a save, so its upto you as DM to intrpret wether or not Paizo did that on purpose. If you think its a typo the the save all the similiar bardic music effects have is "A Will saving throw (DC 10 +1/2 the bard’s level + the bard’s Cha modifier) negates the
effect.2
