Version 0.20: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.

Siren Song is a monsters-only ability that mesmerises the player, preventing them from moving away from the singer. It can be blocked with silence (either via spell or a scroll of silence) or with sufficient magic resistance.

If a player has been mesmerized, they can break free by killing or otherwise incapacitating the caster, breaking line of sight with a scroll of fog or a teleport or blink (controlled blinks cannot be made away from the caster).

This ability is currently only possessed by:

Prior to 0.20, creating a sufficiently loud enough noise, such from reading scroll of noise or casting Lightning Bolt, could break the mesmerisation.

Prior to version 0.16, this ability could force the player to draw closer to the caster in addition to mesmerising them. That ability has since been moved to Avatar Song with the renaming of mermaids and sirens into sirens and merfolk avatars, respectively.
