Origin: T’Zin, the World Tree
Type: Artifact Weapon
Description: Though completely mundane in appearance—having more in common with a stick than a magical artifact—this mage’s staff is actually a powerful conduit for any Nature mage, particularly one who focuses on Earth magic. The staff itself is a gnarled, heavily knotted branch, just over five feet in height.
Non-Combat: Any time this staff’s wielder attempts to use Earth (Nature) Magic to create, grow, heal, alter, or commune with plants in any way, they may choose to add five free, additional successes to their final result.
Combat: If wielded by a Nature mage, they may choose to add two free, additional successes to their final result any time they use Nature Magic to incapacitate or disadvantage their opponents with plants. However, they may not gain these additional successes any time they (or their teammates) attempt to harm or kill their opponents. Only a character with 4 or more ranks in Magic/Nature/Earth can receive this bonus.
Battle: If wielded by a Nature mage, they gain a +1 bonus to their SKILL contribution in BATTLE. Only a character with 4 or more ranks in Magic/Nature/Earth can receive this bonus.
