An onyx rod capped with a small black skull
This is a heavy rod made from a large single shard of black onyx. The rod is capped with a shrunken, fist-sized, human skull. Where the skull is set in the rod there is an intricate setting of silver mounted with various gems and essences.
If viewed by anyone with the Gifted trait the skull will gaze back intently into that person’s eyes and may decide to converse with him or her in a torrent of loud winds that no one else can hear.
Wielding the rod grants someone with the sorcery skill a +2D on sorcery tests.
Sakhmet defeated Armond in sorcerous combat and took this rod as part of the booty.
