Usage

The timer in between PRACTICE uses is about 30 seconds.

All characters are randomly assigned a singing voice (within the range dictated by race and gender). You can check your natural voice type with the PRACTICE VOICE command.

Bards with sufficient Performance skill have access to all voice types for their gender regardless of race and can change their voice types at will with the PRACTICE VOICE <type> command. Non-Bards cannot change their voice types.

Voice types display with use of the SING, CHANT, and CHORUS commands.
