Pazuzu’s Scepter (Major Artifact)

Aura overwhelming all CL 30th; Slot none; Price —; Weight 4 lbs.


Pazuzu’s Scepter is a staff of black metal with a large hook at its tip. The scepter functions as a rod of enemy detection that can be used any number of times per day. If Pazuzu presents the scepter as a standard action, all creatures within 30 feet who view it become panicked for 1d6 rounds unless they succeed at a DC 23 Will save (this is a mind-affecting fear effect). Once per day, Pazuzu can use the Pazuzu’s Scepter as a rod of cancellation (this does not deplete or harm the scepter). As a standard action, he can call the scepter to his hand from any distance, even across planar boundaries. As an immediate action, Pazuzu can transform the scepter into a +5 anarchic keen unholy longsword or return it to its normal shape. None of its other powers can be used in sword form.


The Pazuzu’s Scepter can be broken only by a redeemed demon lord.
