Cephalopod Staff

Source Horror Adventures pg. 217
Aura moderate conjuration CL 11th
Slot none; Price 22,800 gp; Weight 4 lbs.


This dark mahogany staff is carved in the shape of a squid’s tentacle and smells strongly of seawater. When grasped, the staff animates, writhing momentarily until it regains its rigid, wooden form. As a swift action, the wielder can transform the staff into a long, flexible weapon that functions as a masterwork whip. The staff reverts to its normal form at the beginning of the wielder’s next turn.

The staff allows the use of the following spells.
  • Summon monster II (octopus or squid only; 1 charge)
  • Black tentacles (3 charges)
  • Summon monster VI (giant octopus only; 5 charges)


Requirements Craft Staff, black tentacles, summon monster VI; Cost 11,400 gp
