Wizards ought to have an arcane tradition that encourages them to fight with, and use, a magical staff.
It is a core part of the classical archetype, and while you don't have to be an old man with a long white beard, your character might feel out of place wielding a sword. Surely an archetype could be found that would let you feel good about using a staff for combat, or in any capacity.
Look no further! Now you can turn any staff you wield into a magical staff, carve the adornments yourself, and make use of it both for melee combat and for magical power.
