30 Day D&D Challenge, Day 25: Favorite Magic Item

Day 25: Favorite Magic Item

So many.
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)
Additionally, the wielder of a witch’s staff has a +2 bonus to AC and all saving throws. The staff itself is a +2 quarter staff and can be used as a weapon in mêlée combat.

That would just be an awsome staff to play with.

That's a nice companion to the Staff of the Magi. I like it!
