Ode to Gyrfalcon’s Instinct (Act, Percussion, Sing)
You recall a part of the Wintry Hymns when Ithreia’s beloved gyrfalcons warned her of an Elementalist ambush. Listeners feel the pull of their in¬stincts sharpened and more meaningful.
Prerequisite: Perform (act, percussion, sing) 13 ranks.
Cost: Feat or 5th-level bard spell known.
Effect: All allies within 30 feet gain a +10 bonus on initiative checks. They can always take 20 instead of rolling on Heal checks to tend to their own injuries without taking more time.

Use: 1 round of bardic performance per hour.
Action: 1 standard action.
