This heavy cold iron rod has no images upon it, for such decoration is considered an insult to the spirits it summons. The wielder of this rod can see spirits as per the ring of spiritual sight. Three times per day the rod’s owner can cast spirit confession, forcing the spirits to speak the truth. Once per day he can order any single spirit or undead creature to carry out his wishes, as if by the spell command undead; the DC of the Will save to resist this effect is 16. Finally, the bearer gains Spell Resistance 16 against all nec- romancy spells or spell-like abilities. Note that spirits can sense this rod, and are generally wary of it — if the rod’s owner abuses its powers, the spirits will grow to hate him, and will do their best to subvert his control over them.
