Tuesday Magic Item – Pilgrim’s Practical Staff

17 May, 2016

Let's go!“These pilgrims are very well organized, I must say that I am impressed,” said Voddick.

“You just like the easy work,” grinned Gollaon.

Voddick shrugged.  “Makes a nice change.  And running off those ruffians was work!”

“But not much.  They saw our swords and ran like rabbits.”

“And we should complain?  The pilgrims are happy, their silver is good and the food is filling.”

“True, there are worse jobs.”

Pilgrim’s Practical Staff

These wooden staves are stout and often rather battered, smoothed by years of use but still sturdy and ready to be used.  Indeed, it fits quite comfortably in your hand.

The practical staff gives the pilgrim using it a +2 sacred bonus on saves to avoid falling or slipping when the staff can be used to help and the same bonus to avoid fatigue from a long day’s walk.  When planted firmly in the earth, it is very difficult to dislodge and useful for hanging tents or lines off of.

The staff can be used as a weapon and functions as a masterwork staff (or club, depending on length) but only when used to deliver nonlethal damage.

The practical staff gives the pilgrim using it advantage on saves to avoid falling or slipping when the staff can be used to help and the same bonus to avoid fatigue from a long day’s walk.  When planted firmly in the earth, it is very difficult to dislodge and useful for hanging tents or lines off of.

Notes: More on the pilgrim theme and I think simple items like this should be fairly common in fantasy world.  Items such as these should emerge spontaneously from use.
