Rod of Arcane Feedback

Wondrous item, rare (requires attunement)

This mirror-finished metal pole is worn on the back and stands upright a full two feet above the wielder’s head. When a creature within 60 feet of you casts a spell, you may use your reaction to create a feedback loop of arcane resonance and damage the caster. The caster must make a saving throw against their own spell save DC. If they fail, they roll a number of d6s equal to the spell’s level and take that much psychic damage. If they succeed, they take half that damage. If the spell they cast deals damage, the damage type of the feedback changes to that damage type. Once you have used this ability, you cannot use it again until you finish a short or long rest.

Select a humanoid target within 5 feet. The target must succeed on a DC 15 Wisdom saving throw or be enthralled, for 1 hour. While enthralled the target reacts as though under the effects of the Charm Person spell with the addition of a compulsion to bat at and chase the Rod of Bastet’s feathers. The Rod of Bastet has a maximum of three charges and regains 1D3 charges at dawn.
