Crook and Flail of Kings (Major Artifact)

Aura strong abjuration; CL 20th; Slot none; Price —; Weight 5 lbs. each


The crook is an 18-inch-long cane with a hooked head made of gold reinforced with blue copper bands. It functions as a greater empower metamagic rod.

The flail is a 2-foot-long rod of gold, ending with three beaded strands of semi-precious stones. It functions as both a greater reach metamagic rod and a +2 thundering flail.

When the crook and flail are held simultaneously, one in each hand, the wielder can cast spells without providing somatic components (as Still Spell, but this doesn’t use a higher level spell slot or increase casting time). Furthermore, once per day as an immediate action, the wielder can reflect spells cast against him for 1 round (as spell turning) up to a total of 9 spell levels. If the wielder is a spellcaster, he can expend a prepared spell or spell slot to use this ability again; he can reflect a total number of spell levels equal to the level of the expended spell.


If a rightful ruler strikes the crook and flail together with the intent to break them, both items shatter and turn instantly to sand.
