From publisher blurb:
The mightiest wizards, and many other heroic figures of legend, often carry a magical staff upon which to lean. More than mere canes or cudgels, they contain eldritch powers unleashed by the will and might of those who wield them.
Staves of Ascendance introduces magic staves and rods that grow in power as wielders advance in level, allowing you to put artifact-caliber tools in the hands of characters while maintaining balanced game play throughout a heroic campaign.
Staves of Ascendance includes:
- Twelve new magic staves and rods, such as the Staff of Doors and Bramblethorn, the Arm of the Woods
- Four new prestige classes that enable characters to tap into the special abilities of legendary staves and rods: the battlestaff scion, spellstaff scion, faithstaff scion, and swiftstaff scion
- Guidelines for incorporating these mighty items into your own campaign
