Bio:

Recovered from a novice mage by the name of Simon Langfield, this staff appears to be responsible for the appearance of the nightmarish creatures that terrorized the fairgrounds.

RHC enchanters have now identified the staff’s main properties, but the implement’s connection to the planet Apet is still not entirely understood. For now, it is kept under warding magics. Following a proper investigation by the PCs, Delft is considering calling in a personal favor from Harkover Lee to remove the planar magics from the staff, so that it can be wielded safely.

In any case, it will not be returned to Simon.


The enchantment (now stabilized) can be transferred to a non-historic replica at the party’s request.

The relic itself is currently on display at the museum in Flint, now that the Gidim crisis has passed.
