This rod is usually made of gnarled wood, seemingly unworked by tools, and functions as a +1 club. Once per day the owner can strike the ground, causing an earthquake as per the spell, but with the area of effect centered on the rod itself. The rod’s owner is not directly affected by the earthquake effect, although he may still suffer incidental damage. For instance, if the wielder of an earthshaker rod invokes the earthquake effect on open ground, he has no chance to fall into a fissure, and need not make a Reflex save to retain his feet. However, if he evokes the effect at the top of a cliff and the cliff gives way beneath him, the rod does not compensate for the sudden absence of any footing.

Strong evocation; CL 17th; Craft Rod, pull of the earth, earthquake; Price 49,000 gp.
