Tuesday Magic Item – Cane of Candy

18 December, 2012

Sweet treats“Uncle Nobble, Uncle Nobble!” shouted the children as the older man made his way into the common room.

“Be patent children,” he chided with a smile, “there will be enough for everyone.”

He made his way to one of the central tables.  His niece Cember spread a table cloth over it.  He raised his cane over it and said a word and pieces of candy rained down from his walking stick to cover the table cloth.  “Enjoy all!” he said with a broad smile.

Cane of Candy

These canes feature an ornate handle, often carved in festive scenes and a thin metal arm though this often cannot be seen as the length of the arm will be covered by crystalized sugar.

With a word, the crystalized sugar will fall away into 12d12 pieces of candy, ready for consumption.  Left unobserved overnight, the cane will again be fully candied.  If a piece of fruit or a pinch of spice is left against the cane at night, the candy will take on that flavor and color.

Used as a weapon, treat the cane as a club, but on a critical hit, a piece of the sugar candy has become lodged in the wound where it inflicts causing one point of bleed damage on the next round.
