Description: This song allows the bard to either compose an ode about a player or monster which is present, or sing an ode already composed. To compose an ode about a subject, the bard must enter 'sing ode name' while the subject is in the room. The bard must then be careful to follow the subject around during the composition, so as to maintain contact. If the bard should lose contact with the subject of the ode, the composition will fail. At any time, the bard may end the composition by entering 'sing ode' (without the name).

Once an ode has been composed, the ode may be sung again using 'sing ode name'. The ode will echo the three top activities which the bard witnessed the subject doing during composition. It will then allow the bards entire group to benefit from this composition. Benefits may be increased abilities, increased saving throws, increased stats, or other benefits. These benefits will all depend upon the nature of the composition. Once an ode has been composed about a subject, a new composition about the same subject may not be made.

Enter 'sing ode' (without a name) will end a composition in progress. It will also allow the bard to review the odes already composed in the past.
