Constructed of iron set
with silver rivets, this rod has the properties of a +2 Light Mace. Its other
magical powers are as follows.
· Thunder: Once
per day, the rod can strike as a +3 Light Mace, and the opponent struck is stunned
from the noise of the rod's impact (Fortitude DC 16 negates). Activating this
power counts as a free action, and it works if the wielder strikes an opponent
within 1 round.
Once per day, when the wielder desires, a short spark of electricity can leap
forth when the rod strikes an opponent to deal the normal damage for a +2 Light Mace (1d6+2) and an extra 2d6 points of electricity damage. Even when the rod
might not score a normal hit in combat, if the roll was good enough to count
as a successful melee touch attack hit, then the 2d6 points of electricity damage
still applies. The wielder activates this power as a free action, and it works
if he strikes an opponent within 1 round.
Once per day as a standard action, the wielder can cause the rod to give
out a deafening noise, just as a shout spell (Fortitude DC 16 partial, 2d6 points
of sonic damage, target deafened for 2d6 rounds).
· Lightning Stroke:
Once per day as a standard action, the wielder can cause the rod to shoot out
a 5-foot-wide lightning bolt (9d6
points of electricity damage, Reflex DC 16 half ) to a range of 200 feet.
· Thunder and
Lightning: Once per week as a standard action, the wielder of the rod can
combine the thunderclap described above with a lightning
bolt, as in the lightning stroke. The thunderclap affects all within 10
feet of the bolt. The lightning stroke deals 9d6 points of electricity damage
(count rolls of 1 or 2 as rolls of 3, for a range of 27 to 54 points), and the
thunderclap deals 2d6 points of sonic damage. A single DC 16 Reflex save applies
for both effects.
Moderate evocation; CL 9th; Craft Rod, Craft Magic Arms and Armour, lightning bolt, shout; Price 33,000 gp.
