The Quickening Pulse

You create a musical tempo that first mirrors your enemies’ heartbeats, and then quickens them to dangerous levels. When you complete the performance, all enemies within 30 feet who can hear your performance must make a Fortitude save or take 1d6 points of damage as their pounding heart causes them to sweat blood. Creatures that are immune to critical hits are unaffected by this ability. Creatures that are wounded by a slashing or piercing weapon while this effect is active take an additional 1d6 damage each time they are wounded. Each round that you continue the performance adds another round to the bleed effect. Abilities that extend the duration of a bardic performance affect this masterpiece.
