"Named for the alluring siren so
ng that beckons sailors to their doom, the Call of the Siren enchante weaves an irresistible pattern of music that transcends the boundaries of language. Man, beast or bird will all be drawn by the enticing strains of this enchante, though it does nothing to soothe their disposition. Once captivated by the singer, victims will find themselves reluctant to leave. Performed loudly, it will draw listeners from afar. Curiously, a quietly sung rendition has the opposite effect -- not potent enough to ensnare from a distance, but loud enough to alert, it will ward many creatures away from the performer. Although it was originally conceived as a vocal enchante, contemporary musicians have found that the pulse of a drum enhances the potency of the effect."
