The Flute of Sheep is an artifact found only in the NES port of Ultima IV.

Description[edit]

One of the many nameless skeletons that roam the ruins of Magincia can tell the Stranger in this version of the game that the town hides a treasure, and that its inhabitants no longer have need of it. Seeking amidst the battered buildings of the dead city, the hero may find this relic in a chest within a hidden passage beneath ground.

Usable only by characters of the Shepherd class, the flute's melody has a random chance of driving all of the enemies who hear it into an enchanted slumber, similar to what might be achieved by the Sleep or Mass Sleep spells.
