Staff of Mastery

Staff, very rare (requires attunement by a wizard)

This staff of bent and polished dragonbone bound with metal bands is sometimes gifted by elder wizards to their former apprentices in celebration of reaching an exalted rank within their order. Each staff of mastery is crafted to harmonize with a single school of magic and allows an attuned wielder allows an attuned wielder to spend 1 charge to cast counterspell against a spell from the staff’s school. In addition, the wielder can spend 1 charge to use the following spells, based on the staff’s type.

Abjuration: dispel magic, protection from energy

Conjuration: cloud of daggers, misty step

Divination: clairvoyance, detect thoughts

Enchantment: hold person, suggestion

Evocation: daylight, magic missile (2nd level)

Illusion: blur, major image

Necromancy: ray of enfeeblement, vampiric touch

Transmutation: alter self, slow

The wielder also can spend 1 charge when casting a spell of the staff’s type in order to increase the spell’s level by 1; this includes spells cast from the staff itself.

The staff has 10 charges, and regains 1d6+4 expended charges per day at dawn. If you expend the last charge, roll a d20. If you roll a 1, the staff crumbles into bone dust and tarnished shards of metal.
