This rod was created by the great mage Nani. She died before the final incantation was finished and so the rod lacks much of its intended power…

The rod was created to grant its owner the abilities of a fighter of the same level when using the rod. The rod can become two weapons: a greatsword of brilliant energy, or a shocking chain whip. The briliant energy passes through any mundane armor. The rod is a 3 foot long blue gray pole, on one end it has blue and red sphere on end and two prongs about 3 inches long each.

....|| It looks kinda like that.

Anyhoo, the whip or blade comes out of the flat part on top.
Ignore the dots.

Magical Properties:

The rod is inteligent and it longs to see the final battle between the gods and attempts to find someone who can take it to a god to provoke a great war once more. Its curse is seen as horid by some while others see it as a minor cost, it turns any mage holding it into a half elf female. While held it gives the holder the base attack bonus of a fighter their level. This item is only useful to mages.

In other words this rod makes any mage an effective fighter in battle. They have they same skill with the weapons the rod provides as a fighter of their mage level. Ie: If Lendor the 16th wizard got this rod, he would be efectivly a fighter 16th level, wizard 16th level half elf female. When he drops the rod he will revert back to a human wizard 16th level. Hope that helps.

Could you please explain more about the whole "fighter level" thing, and the weapons that it can become? Does the energy sword behave just like a normal sword or what?
A little odd...

I agree with Capt, I'd like a couple more details.

Good job on capitalisation and punctuation, it really adds to your post and makes it easier to read and enjoy. :)

Your description does a better job of painting your rod's appearance than ascii art. It does sound like it looks like a sword out of Tenchi Muyo, though.

This has power, that might not help, and cost that might not hurt. For example, a female half elf fighter would likely use this to beat door to door salesmen.

I like the idea of an intelligent item that was never fully complete, one that is still perhaps looking for its master-it turn everyone into its master-this could be a great sub, 

I think it could use some work

A classic 2 to me, no logic flaws but just too sparse in details.

The PCs discover a large white ball in the branches of a tree, or in a niche in a cave. Unless magically examined, or by a PC with a specialty in insects, it is a plain, smooth white ball. After a short time, it hatches and releases hundreds of spiders, cockroaches, some other nasty bug
