The Mists of Ravenloft
The Rod of Isu
Description: A 3’ long metallic rod with the head of a viper.
History: Once the property of Isu, Evil priestess of Muhar. She used this rod in battle against the party. After speaking an incantation, the head of the rod came to life, biting each party member it attacked.
Study of the Item: After taking time to study the item, Aeolus had determined that the rod was infused with a powerful magic, but one that can only be unlocked by a being with an evil heart. This evil will increase the power of the rod during its strikes, and if the possessor also knew the magic keyword to bring the rod to life, the head would attack with a powerful poison.
