Fool's Speech is a 6th-level ritual available to bards.[PH2:215]

When you finish performing the ritual, you and up to five allies who heard it can use a secret language to communicate with each other. To other creatures, your speech is incomprehensible, a string of nonsense words. Affected characters can speak in Fool’s Speech or another language at their discretion.

Focus: A musical instrument you play as part of performing the ritual.
