9.46 VOICECRAFT
9.45 < HARMONICS Seafaring > 9.47
Voicecraft is the skill centred on using the voice, with or without
instrumental accompaniment, to create various effects to aid yourself or those
you wish to favour, or to afflict your enemies.
Chant, sing, or recite your way to fame and glory as you shatter crystal
forests, sing down shields, protect yourself from damage, or free yourself from
various forms of binding - all through the power of Voicecraft.
A unique feature of Voicecraft abilities is that they do not use or require you
to have normal equilibrium or balance. They work on their own kind of balance
called "voice balance."
