Weapon (quarterstaff), artifact (Requires attunement by a wizard.)

This is the staff that Aelar the Destroyer forged nearly 10 million years ago. It stayed with him when he became the archlich Shayde the Devastator, and has gained even more power over time. It appears similar to a double-ended staff of power.
Random Properties. The Staff of Shayde has the following random properties:

  • 3 minor beneficial properties
  • 1 major beneficial property
  • 2 minor detrimental properties
  • 2 major detrimental properties

Improved Intellect. A creature attuned to the staff has it's Intelligence increased by 5, to a maximum of 30.

Scourge of Shayde. Any non-evil creature attuned to the staff must make a DC 25 Wisdom saving throw every time it rests. On a failed save, the creature's alignment shifts one step toward evil. If a creature becomes evil through thus property, it gains a +2 bonus to all ability checks.

Improved attack. This staff functions as a +6 quarterstaff. When a creature attuned to it hits with it, the target of the attack must succeed on a Constitution saving throw or be paralyzed for 1 minute.
