It is great fun to see this item at work.
I can already see the looks on the face of the roque who is trying to sneak attack someone.
But also in the situation where you want to explore a dungeon in debt. This can actualy be a very usefull tool. No more dragging around torches, that you need to keep in a hand. Just walk around and light the area. (Bettter have a fighter or Paladin do that and not the sneaking cheater or the wizard that wants to be able to blend into the shadow.) Go to Comment
I suppose this would then be considered the two-edged sword. Well yes, you CAN use the staff to take out that band of trolls, but do you really want to curse yourself in the process?
I rather like it. It's got a good purpose, a proper reason for existence, and while it's powerful, it's not overly so due to affecting the wielder with the same mis-fortune. Reminds me of nothing less than the Sword of Shannarah... Go to Comment
*laughs and shakes his head* No no no, I meant that in the fact that the actual Sword was dangerous versus all illusions, but it was like a drug: very very very addicting. It's a double-edged weapon, like the staff. Go to Comment
I like it, a useful item for cursing. Would the wielder need to know the staff is cursed and use it in a particular way, or would simply touching the staff cause the curse to spread? Maybe it's the sort of thing where one must seek vengeance to enact it. Go to Comment
