The Blasting Rod is an exceptionally dangerous item, as hazardous to those who employ it as to their enemies. Physically, it is a rod of hazel wood the length of a man’s forearm, with forked ends that terminate in sharply pointed steel caps. It grants its possessor numerous malevolent powers, but also physically damages them, and can quickly cause madness. Naturally, the ceremony to create a Blasting Rod is exactingly difficult.

By pointing a Blasting Rod at a Spirit or Fairy, the User can Banish it to its natural abode, without a Saving Throw, and regardless of the creature’s might or status. Even Lucifer himself cannot resist the power of a Blasting Rod. Using the Rod in this way causes the User to suffer Lethal Damage equal to the Level of Spirit banished, and they must also make a Charisma Check or have their Perversity increase by the same amount.

Similarly, by suffering 1 point of Lethal Damage, and risking a 1 point increase in Perversity, the User can fling an Elf Stroke.

By suffering 3 points of Lethal Damage, and risking a 3 point increase in Perversity, the User can shoot a Lightning Bolt.

The User can Raise Storm by suffering 5 points of Lethal Damage, and risking a 5 point increase in Perversity.

By suffering 3 points of Lethal Damage and risking a 3 point increase in Perversity, the User can create a Gust of Wind.

The user can Call Lightning by suffering 3 points of Lethal Damage, and risking a 3 point increase in Perversity.

By suffering 3 points of Lethal Damage, and risking a 3 point increase in Perversity, the User can Blast Crops.

The User can Bewitch Cattle by suffering 2 points of Lethal Damage, and risking a 2 point increase in Perversity.

By suffering 2 points of Lethal Damage, and risking a 2 point increase in Perversity, the User can inflict Barrenness.

Furthermore, the Blasting Rod can also serve as a regular Magical Implement for the the use of Invocations already known. If employed in that way, the Magician only suffers the usual Nonlethal Damage.
