This seems pretty steep for its effect.


Don't get me wrong. Readying heroes is this game's bread and butter. And this is a global effect, which is great. But it's also PAINFULLY conditional on players drawing into their songs and having the resources to play them before you drop this. 


Compared to other global readying effects like Lure of Moria or even Grim Resolve...I just don't think there's a lot of value here.

Yea, the other global (or remotely global) standing effects are the events Descendants of Kings, Grim Resolve, Hold Your Ground!, Lure of Moria, Strength of Arms, and The Free Peoples or the ally Eomund.   The only one you have to actually "work" for is The Free Peoples.   So this is just a lot of work for a little standing.  I'd also like it if they would un-errata Love of Tales.   


I also like how there is a horse in the art, because when I think of songs I think of Elfhelm and creating multi-sphere heroes with mounts on them for the various stat bonuses, but then you are looking for mount attachments AND songs.
