A staff is a long shaft
of wood that stores several spells. Unlike wands, which can contain a wide variety
of spells, each staff is of a certain kind and holds specific spells. A staff
has 50 charges when created.
Physical Description: A typical staff is 4 feet to 7 feet long and 2 inches to 3 inches thick, weighing about 5 pounds. Most staffs are wood, but a rare few are bone, metal, or even glass. (These are extremely exotic.) Staffs often have a gem or some device at their tip or are shod in metal at one or both ends. Staffs are often decorated with carvings or runes. A typical staff is like a walking stick, quarterstaff, or cudgel. It has AC 7, 10 hit points, hardness 5, and a break DC of 24.

Few items are associated with women as the distaff. The distaff is used to hold wool or flax when spinning thread. It is longer than the typical wand but usually shorter than the average staff. Typically 2' to 4' long. The top is usually crowned to hold the material for spinning, but some are also flat with a rough surface.
A witch can opt to use a distaff instead of a staff, since there is nothing out of the ordinary of a woman carrying a distaff, but a staff might draw attention.
and costs for a magical distaff are the same as for a staff. The differences
in size and amount of materials is offset by the rarity of magical distaffs.
Otherwise any magical staff might be used as a magical distaff. The exception
of course is the Staff of the Warlock which will never be found in distaff form.
Of course certain female warlocks might create one of their own.
Activation: Staffs use the spell trigger activation method, so casting a spell
from a staff is usually a standard action that doesn-t provoke attacks of opportunity.
(If the spell being cast, however, has a longer casting time than 1 standard
action, it takes that long to cast the spell from a staff.) To activate a staff,
a character must hold it forth in at least one hand (or whatever passes for
a hand, for nonhumanoid creatures).
Special Qualities: Roll d%. A 01-30 result indicates that something (a design, inscription, or the like) provides some clue to the staff -s function, and 31-100 indicates no special qualities.

the wielder's ability score and relevant feats to set the DC for saves against
their spells. Unlike with other sorts of magic items, the wielder can use his
caster level when activating the power of a staff if it's higher than the caster
level of the staff.
that staffs are far more potent in the hands of a powerful spellcaster. Because
they use the wielder's ability score to set the save DC for the spell, spells
from a staff are often harder to resist than ones from other magic items, which
use the minimum ability score required to cast the spell. Not only are aspects
of the spell dependant on caster level (range, duration, and so on) potentially
higher, but spells from a staff are harder to dispel and have a better chance
of overcoming a target's Spell Resistance.
a staff can hold a spell of any level, unlike a wand, which is limited to spells
of 4th level or lower. The minimum caster level of a staff is 8th. Standard
staffs are described below.
