spell cannot mimic specific sounds (other than bangs) or create images other than flashes of light.
This is a spell used to entertain crowds rather than a battle spell it is practiced by those mages without a ?real? income ? a court mage would only use such a spell to entertain their liege while most true wizards would not be seen dead casting it.
perform check made while the spell is running and is typically used by street magicians to fill a hat with coin from passers-by.

Vosgaard in particular are more likely to throw an axe than toss a coin in appreciation.
The spell is common in Brechtür and Khinasi where mages are often accepted as performers, frowned on in Anuire where magic is generally seen as a more serious business and vanishingly rare in Rjurik or Vosgaard.

This spell is here primarily as a template for others to follow. In game terms it is an example of 'hedge' magic - a practical little spell with no combat application. If the DM wants to PCs to see a mage making a display, this gives an example spell which describes how the magic is done without players feeling 'cheated' that the spell is unavailable to them.
