Tuesday Magic Item – Autumnal Wand

24 September, 2019

Autumn leavesVoddick took a deep breath.  “Ah, the smells of an autumn festival.  Spiced drinks, pies, and other wonderful foods.”

Gollaon nodded around a bite of pie.  “Truth.  It is good to be among people who are enjoying themselves.  Too much war wears on the soul.”

“Indeed,” smiled Voddick.  “Such times lift my spirits and give hope for the future.”

Gollaon laughed.  “Such poetry.  Let us go and watch a show.”

“Have another pie.”

Autumnal Wand

These wands are made of wood, always, are of of the colors of the season it represents: orange, gold and browns.  They feel comfortable to the touch, as if warmed by sunlight.  These wands are created for entertainment and amusement, but can be turned to more creative ends.

The wand can create the following effects:

  • Autumn Chill, over a 15′ radius within 60′ of the wand’s wielder, everything is covered in frost, this causes 1 point of cold damage to all caught in it and makes the area difficult terrain for one round.
  • Apple Summoning, create 3d6 apples, ripe and ready to eat.
  • Move or Summon Autumn Leaves, enough to fill or cover a 5′ x 5′ square to a depth of six inches.  In appropriate terrain, it gives a +4 bonus to Stealth checks to remain hidden.

The power of the effects are doubled on the Autumn Solstice.

It can be used five times each day.

First paragraph as above.

The wand can create the following effects:

  • Autumn Chill, over a 15′ radius within 60′ of the wand’s wielder, everything is covered in frost, this causes 1 point of cold damage to all caught in it and makes the area difficult terrain for one round.
  • Apple Summoning, create 3d6 apples, ripe and ready to eat.
  • Move or Summon Autumn Leaves, enough to fill or cover a 5′ x 5′ square to a depth of six inches.  In appropriate terrain, it gives advantage on Dexterity (Stealth) checks to remain hidden.

The power of the effects are doubled on the Autumn Solstice.

This wand has 7 charges.  The wand regains 1d6 + 1 expended charges daily at dawn. If you expend the wand’s last charge, roll a d20. On a 1, the wand crumbles into dust and is destroyed.

Notes: A little late, as the Autumn Solstice was yesterday.  Just a fun little item that can be put to creative uses.
