New Magic Item – Steelidun Fiddle11 July, 2013
“Let me play you a stompin’, dancing’ song,” said the smiling Bard Aja with a wink. His fingers and bow flashing across the fiddle as his music filled the barn.
“Grab you partner!”
The Steelidun Clan love their music and that is shown in the craftsmanship of these fiddles, made of the best wood the maker was able to beg, borrow or steal. They are decorated as best the maker can, with inlays of wood or more rarely shell or metal. It is tradition for each new owner to lightly carve his or her name, lightly on the back.
It is an exceptional fiddle, providing the player with a +5 enhancement bonus to Perform (string) and if the fiddler can use an additional round of bardic performance as long as it includes the use of the fiddle.
When used by one of the Steelidun Clan, the fiddler adds his Dexterity modifier to his Perform (string) check (minimum 0), may use the fiddle for an additional number of rounds of bardic performance equal to her Constitution Modifier (minimum 1) replacing the additional rounds of music granted above. The Steelidun rarely give these instruments away and will be very suspicious of any non-clansman who possesses one.
The fiddle is also amazingly durable (hardness 8, 20 hit points) and seemingly impervious to poor environmental conditions.
