This copper-and-bronze whistle is played by blowing through the mouthpiece while opening and closing one’s hand over the hole to modify the pitch. The whistle has 3 charges, which are automatically restored at sunrise each day. As a standard action, the user can attempt a Perform (wind) check and expend the indicated number of charges to produce one of the following effects.

0 charges: Wake all allies within 30 feet (DC 15).
1 charge: Wake all allies aboard the same ship (DC 20).
1 charge: Convey a secret message to all allies within 60 feet, as the Bluff skill (DC 20).
1 charge: Perform a countersong as the bardic performance ability, with a +2 bonus on the Perform (wind) check (DC 20).
2 charges: Grant up to six allies, no two of whom can be more than 30 feet apart, climb and swim speeds of 20 feet each for 4 rounds (DC 20).
2 charges: Grant all allies within 60 feet a +5 morale bonus on Swim checks for 10 minutes (DC 25).

The charge is expended even if the Perform check fails.

A user of the bosun’s call who has the bardic performance class feature can, as a swift action, expend a number of rounds of bardic performance equal to the number of charges needed to produce the effect instead of expending those charges.


Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, alarm, alter self, creator must have the bardic performance class ability; Cost 3,350 gp
