Wabbajack, Variant (5e Equipment)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search
Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Shouldn't the wabbajack be an artefact? Anyway, this is full of non-D&D terms: "12 seconds", "30 minutes", "30 seconds"; "Heal 1d4 to every creature"; "heal 2d4"; many of the entries are poorly written or defined; has far too many charges - it might be funny once a day or so, but 8 times a day is going to get obnoxious. "Make 3 spells in one attack" doesn't make any sense. Are the "spells" the entries on the table, or are they your own spells? What is the "attack"? Are you making an attack roll?

Staff, Legendary (Needs Attunement)

This is a Remaster of the Wabbajack. This stave holds the magic that not even most gods understand. The wielder of this weapon can become the most powerful being in the world, or simply die the first time they use it.

This staff has 3 charges and regains 1d4 expended charges daily at dawn. Every time you use this stuff, one charge is used and you get to make 3 rolls in one turn. Roll a d100 (an online one can be found here at https://www.wizards.com/dnd/dice/dice.htm), the outcomes are listed below. Once the first outcome happens, roll another d100 for the second, and then again for the third outcome. This staff is cursed, and the owner can never get rid of it unless it is given to a new owner directly. If the staff is to be separated from its owner, it teleport's back to the owner's hand. If the owner is to transform into a creature that is unable to wield a staff, it vanishes and re-appears when the owner is turned back to normal or into something that can wield a staff.
