Rod of Office - Magic Item


"Welcome, welcome to the most magnificent emporium of magic items in this plane of existence. My name is Lucan, and whatever your party needs I will be able to provide - for the right price of course."

This week we have a special little item much used by those wonderful individuals who rule over us, hopefully with our best interests at heart. Some call it a swagger stick but it's proper title is Rod of Office.


Here, why don't you try it out?"


Rod of Office

Rod, uncommon

+1 intimidation, +1 persuasion, +1 insight


Depending on your viewpoint this is either a hated symbol of authoritarian control or a welcomed sign of authority.

An official-looking polished wooden rod usually tipped with bronze or similar metal. Whilst no one can say what organisation it actually represents everyone recognises that a wielder of this rod has authority. Carried extensively by senior government officials and sometimes government investigators.

Provides the wielder with advantage on intimidation and persuasion checks against sentient creatures who can understand the concept of authority; for example, it doesn’t work on the undead, animals or slaads.

Stats above are for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition
