Rods and Staffs

Table of contents

 
 

Rods and Staffs are the weapons of clerics, mages, and scholars. While rods tend to be more combat oriented, staffs are more for those who focus more on their arcane arts than on combat. 

Rods and staffs deal bashing damage, therefore those with the Weapons Mastery in Bashing Weapons ability, your attacks will cause bashing damage.

  • Against an armored target you will cause Fatigue if you crit, with Fatigue lasting lasting 4 rounds.
  • If the target is not armored, Minor Broken Bones and Fatigue apply if you crit.
  • You can make a strength check to daze the target for 1d3 rounds.

 

1. Rods

A rod is a smooth pole made of hard material, usually precious stones or metal, that is made to be near the height of the wielder. You cannot dual wield a rod, but you can wield a rod in a single hand. Also if you have the Weapons Mastery in Blunt Weapons ability, you can use a support action to get an extra attack or block (assuming you have the block skill) with a rod.

2. Staff

Staffs are not known for their damage dealing properties. They are instead iconic of the wizard or sage. The traditional staff is a simple wooden pole that is often knotted and uneven. It has an average blocking power with a slightly below average attacking power and is used more as a defensive weapon than an offensive weapon. A staff cannot be dual wielded and may be one or two handed. If you have Weapons Mastery in Blunt Weapons ability and a blocking skill, you can use a support action for an extra block.

3. Rune Staff

The Rune Staff is a staff made of wood with the purest crystal that can be found embedded in it. This crystal is attuned to the user so that it takes on the user's runic element. The Rune Staff can activate a different ability depending upon the user's element. Each ability is activated when a critical hit is successfully preformed (for attack effect) or a critical success is preformed using the block skill (for block effect).

  • Earth: Solidity Ability = increases staff attack value and block value by +10
  • Air: Knock Back Ability each hit uses air to knock the target back 1 hex and increases attack value by + 10
  • Water: Frozen Flame Ability = each hit does an extra 2d6 ice damage and has a 20% chance to freeze the target for 1 round
  • Fire: Aura of Flame Ability = each hit does an extra 2d6 fire damage plus 1d10 burn damage per round
  • Life: Electric Aura Ability each hit does an extra 2d6 shock damage and has a 20% chance to stun the target for 1 round
  • Death: Vampire's Poison Ability = each hit return 1⁄2 of the damage to the user and poisons the target for 1d10 per round
  • Time: Slow Bash Ability each hit reduces the target by half movement rate and there is a 20% chance that the target will be stunned for one round
  • Space: Psionic Command Ability each hit has a 20% chance of causing target to fall under your command for 1 round

Rune Staffs also decrease the user's spell action costs by 1. A rune staff cannot be dual wielded and may be one or two handed.
