Rod of Duality

By:

Devjuha backed away from the engaged foe, his opposite wand moving further out. He held the rod sideways, bracing it against his chest. Then ran, full speed, to the right. He caught an unwary opponent, lingering near the edge of the battle, right in the neck with the vicious assault from his Rod of Duality.

Staff of Doubled Existence

This pair of hefty metal staves is typically sold as a set, but as treasure one part might be missing. They come in a polished oak box with a red velvet interior. The rods themselves each appear as a foot long brass cylinder, about three inches thick, with what appears to be a twistable grip in the middle. Each stave has a small, marble-like, orb of colored stone at both ends. One of the rods is tipped with red stone, the other blue.

When the grip is twisted, the rod's end caps will extend three feet on each side, creating a roughly seven-foot-long pole. If both rods are within twenty-feet of each other and extended: They will snap into an upright position for a moment, before perfectly mirroring the other's movements. They will float in the air, until one is grasped; and at that point the one grasped becomes easily moveable. While the other begins to mimic the movement of the held staff.

Breakdown:

Staff start (Both extended and within twenty feet) - Move to ten feet apart, floating in air three feet off the ground.

Grasp one staff - Staff is moveable as a well-weighted fighting stick, and opposite staff mirrors movement.

Direction clarifications - If you were to hold onto the staff and move back five feet from the beginning point, the other staff would also move back, in the opposite direction that you moved. If you move your staff to the left, the other staff will also go to your left.

Devjuha the Dual

The Mirrored Wand is the feared fighting tool of the villain Devjuha the Dual, a dark sorcerer well trained in the art of staff fighting. He uses this item as a weapon to engage foes without approaching them. His mastery of repulsion and attraction magic make him a feared foe.

His current whereabouts are unknown, but it is said that he is growing old and wishes to pass on the secrets of his fighting style.

Useful magical nunchucks.

I don't think you understand how they work. They are two full-sized fighting staffs. They are magically bonded to each-other so that when you move one, the other moves in an opposite direction (relative to itself). They are not nunchucks.

I think a little more description on how it would be used could help - how could I fight with it unless I stood in an area just as wide or wider then where the staff was located?

It seems that it would be difficult to use without additional telekinetic powers to position it properly.

I agree with valadaar... while having an item able to mimic its opposite is interesting but I fail to see exactly how this could be used in combat effectively. Seems rather confusing.

I too would like to see some clarification.

Apart from that it's a neat idea.

I rather like this.  Having a second stave that mirrors one's motions could be a really nifty combat trick.  At the very least, the second stave would be causing general mayhem about 10 ft away while you engage an opponent directly.  Just watch out for friendly fire.

Have a large room that elevates either up or down when triggering a trap. The floor can bring the players to new levels, where a mighty beast roams, or the floor flattens the players into the ceiling or drop into a pit of lava.
