    Lightbulb [Feats] Til the fat lady sings...

    High Pitch [General]
    Your vocal range is unnaturally high.
    Prerequisites: Bardic music, Perform (sing) 6 ranks
    Benefit: You can sing at such a high pitch that most creatures cannot hear it. Your bardic music or perform (sing) can be used without others detecting it. They are still affected, but cannot detect you. Creatures with echolocation or blindsight/blindsense relying on hearing can hear you fine, though it is painful to them. You gain a +2 bonus to intimidate checks when you use it in conjunction with your high-pitched voice against such creatures.


    -=-=-=-


    Resonant Pitch [General]
    You have masterful control over the harmonics of your voice.
    Prerequisites: Bardic music, Listen 8 ranks, Perform (sing) 8 ranks
    Benefit: You can sense the innate resonance that all things have, creature and object. All spells or powers with the sonic descriptor have their DC's increased by 2. As well, you may use up two of your daily Bardic Musics when you sing to produce an effect similiar to Shatter, the save DC equal to your perform (sing) check plus 2.

    I see no problems, High Pitch is comparable to other stealth music feats, and Resonant Pitch is comparable to other bardic feats. Nice job as always.

    Fun. I like the sonic bonuses, and the shatter. The first one didn't seem useful, but yeah, stealth music, huh. Handy! I dunno about it still working even though they can't hear you. The point of the music is that it is inspiring, so I don't really get how it could work without you hearing it.

    High pitch synergizes nicely with the Disguise Spell feat from CAdv, and Resonant Pitch is just nifty. Thumbs up!

    There are tons of sounds that we can't hear that nevertheless affect us. You can have vibrations you couldn't possibly hope to hear that can still do everything from make you nervous to rupturing your stomach lining.

    Resonant Pitch... Must have... graaahh *zombie walk*
    I LOVE the shatter spell. Must have feat. I... must... have it! I could never have killed our tank without shatter. So much for your precious dendridic armour, loser! And with this feat, I could have killed those dang fullblades, too.
    Perhaps this is too much awesomeness for one feat?

    Can the Bard decide which Spells are affected by Resonant Pitch? Does this Feat only work during a Bardic Song effect?

    I don't much care for the flavour of High Pitch, though.

    Uh... Resonant Pitch seems like it would be extremely powerful. Even a level 5 Bard with 16 Charisma can set average anti-shatter DCs of 23—while a similarly leveled Wizard can, with a similar Int and a Headband of Intellect +2, casting a heightened Shatter spell can only manage a DC of 17...

    Unless I'm misreading...
    Good grammar is hot.

    Err, no... its like all the other bardic feats. You just lose two uses of your bardic music.

    Well, considering most objects don't get a will save anyways... but bards need their bardic music to be useful. A 5th level fellow uses up half his uses in one go to produce a 2nd level spell.

    It is useful but hardly gamebreaking.

    I must say VT, you consistently produce great feats. I am most jealous.

    Erm, because some Spell Effects are friendly and some are not?

    Shouldn't High Pitch be called Supersonics (Or hypersonics, if you want to mix languages)?
