Your music actually creates a clear image, transferring that image to the mind of anyone listening as if they had been there themselves. This is an illusion, but is experienced internally rather than externally – anyone watching but too far away to hear the music (or who makes their saving throw) does not experience the image. The illusion may be frightening, beatific, whatever you choose. Those affected by the imagery are at -10 on all Spot and Listen checks as they lose track of their physical surroundings. Those who actively try to resist the illusion may make Will saves every round to attempt to shake off the spell, although any saving throws after the initial failure suffer a -2 penalty (not cumulative). If the persons affected by the imagery are attacked, they are freed from the spell effects.
Focus: Your musical instrument.
