Versatile Performance and Blistering Invective

Rules Questions

Hi all, I have a rather specific question that I hope you can help me with.

I play as a Bard/Sky Druid Multiclass (4/2) and have been using my performance (percussion) for intimidate checks and it has been going very well (Sylph using windchimes FTW), however I just got a new spell: Blistering Invective.

"You unleash an insulting tirade so vicious and spiteful that enemies who hear it are physically scorched by your fury. When you cast this spell, make an Intimidate check to demoralize each enemy within 30 feet of you. Enemies that are demoralized this way take 1d10 points of fire damage and must succeed at a Reflex save or catch fire. Spell resistance can negate the fire damage caused by this spell, but does not protect the creature from the demoralizing effect."

Now this says to make an intimidate check and I was wondering whether this would still be able to use my performance check that I have been using up until this point.

This is all just for reference as my GM will rule at their discretion but having some opinions on the matter would be great.

Thanks in advance. (My first post BTW)

An intimidate check is just a skill check.

He can use his bonus in that skill in place of his bonus in associated skills. When substituting in this way, the bard uses his total Perform skill bonus, including class skill bonus, in place of its associated skill's bonus, whether or not he has ranks in that skill or if it is a class skill.

Yes, you can use the skill via Versatile Performance for that spell.

That's a special kind of great.

Anyways, yes, it works.

Fantastic, I had hoped that was the case.

I would be tempted to use a Goblin Fire Drum for my instrument.
