I always had fun with a Staff of the Magi, AD&D's closest thing to a magical shotgun.
So much so that I knew I had to do an equivalent staff for Witches.
Witch’s Staff: This staff of hawthorn wood is topped with a rough-faceted crystal. It is a potent magic item that allows the use of the following spells:
- command (1 charge)
- sleep (1 charge)
- magic circle against chaos/law (1 charge)
- polymorph other (1 charge)
- veil (1 charge)
- bestow curse (2 charges)
- eternal sleep (2 charges)
