Staff of Storms

Category:
staff/wand
Description:

A six-foot long staff of white Hoen wood, this staff is also 2.5˝ in diameter, with a silvery metal inset in the bottom about an inch in diameter. The name is inlaid in silver along the side near the top, in Kugor.

The staff is easy to operate, but more challenging to master (using Attune skill). Striking the staff on the ground will summon a storm. If the user does not concentrate (1 additional round to cast) and then specify one of the four powers, he will get a random one (25% chance of each).
