Khonsu is the third member (along with his parents Amon and Mut) of the great triad at Thebes. He often appears as a young man with a mummy’s posture and the sidelock of youth and a curved beard. He is also shown as a hawk-headed god with a crown of the lunar crescent and the solar disc. In his capacity as lunar god, he assists Thoth in recording the passing of time and also serving as a healer of the sick and protector against evil spirits.

The best-known story about him tells of him playing the ancient game Senet (“passage”) against Thoth and wagering a portion of his light. Thoth won, and because of losing some of his light, Khonsu cannot show his whole glory for the entire month, but must wax and wane. The main temple at Karnak is dedicated to him.

Scepter of the Lunar Passage

The head of this silver and bronze scepter depicts an Hourglass design and the symbol of the Wedjat (the lunar eye of Ra). The scepter can be wielded as a Light Mace and is a +5 disruption/ghost touch/lawful weapon.

•At night or in darkness, the scepter glows with a silvery-white faerie fire. This effect dispels all magical darkness in a 20ft. radius.

•The wielder gains a natural +2 bonus to all combat rolls when engaged in combat with a lycanthrope.

•Once a month, during the three nights of the full moon, the wielder may call upon the moon god to grant him or her a double-strength
bless spell.

The effects of this spell last till the next full moon. These bonuses stack with all others.

•The wielder can cast the following spells at will; glitterdust, silence, and silverkiss*.

•Temporal bolts* 5/day.

•Circle of moonlight* 3/day.
