Similar to a rod of lordly might, this rod has combat and utilitarian features. It can be commanded to lengthen and even sprout a blade, allowing it to be used as a halfspear, javelin, kama, longspear, quarterstaff, scythe, shortspear, or a long-handled short sword, acting as +1 weapon of the appropriate type. It can also lengthen up to 6O feet and can support up to 800 pounds without bending. The rod can store a message of up to twenty-five words as the magic mouth spell, replaying the message when the wielder's triggering conditions have been met (such as when a particular word is spoken). The wielder may reset the message as a standard action.
