Sing

  • You clear your throat, then run through a short scale before launching into a chorus from one of the ballads taught to your during your initiation into the guild. Your voice cracks on the second line, however, and you stop, unable to remember any more of the song anyway.
  • You clear your throat, then run through a short scale before launching into the chorus from one of the ballads taught to you during your initiation into the guild.

  • You clear your throat, then run through a short scale before launching into the chorus from one of the ballads taught to your during your initiation into the guild. You feel a bit tired as you finish, but grin despite that for the ease at which you sang.
  • You clear your throat, then run through a short scale before launching into a rendition of a ballad taught you during your initiation into the guild.

  • You clear your throat, then run through a short scale before launching in to a confident rendition of a ballad taught to you during your initiation into the guild.

When the song finally comes to a close, you bow your head, your ears ringing in the silence.

Play

Initial wording varies slightly by instrument.

Stringed: You hold your <instrument> gently, letting your hands wander across the strings seemingly aimlessly.
Percussion: You hold your <instrument> gently, letting your hands pick out a rhythm of their own choosing.
Wind: You hold your <instrument> carefully, exhaling softly into it as you let your breath and slight movements of your hands determine the song being played.

  • You stop only after a few moments, however, realizing that you cannot focus upon so much as the simplest musical phrase in your current state of mind.
  • Stumbling along passages that seemed clear in your mind, your fingers seem to tangle amongst themselves as you attempt to play. Somehow, you just don't feel very sure of your ability to perform just now.
  • Frustration wracks you as you seem unable to form a strong melody upon your bones, and your mind keeps wandering as you attempt to focus upon a specific tune to follow. After only a short moment you give up in exasperation and stop trying to play altogether.
  • You hesitate often as you play, the melody in your mind evading your grasp as you attempt to bring it to reality upon your bones. You shake your head slightly as you realize that you're not quite up to a true performance.
  • You hesitate slightly during a slow passage, unsure of where to take your song, but overall the music that is produced from your efforts is both clear and precise.
  • The music you produce is both confident and strong, displaying the surety you hold in your ability to perform.
  • The music produced by your efforts is flawless and clear, played with such confidence that the adeptness with which you perform your craft is evident in each movement.
  • The music you produce is playfully complex, weaving a delicate thread of melody in and out of a main theme with the skill and confidence of one talented in their craft.
  • The music produced is a seamless, graceful demonstration of the total perfection and confidence in both your own abilities and the mastery of your craft. Your spirit soars upon the evocative rhythms you send to float gently upon the air.
  • The music produced is a riveting, complex piece resplendent with flourishes that display the innate talent of your craft. You revel in the rich tones that form a tapestry of sound as colorful as a field of wild flowers in the foothills of Leth Deriel during the full throes of Spring.

Dance
