Rod of Infernal Disruption
The Scholar of Wexos lurked in the shadows, protected by magic, watching the meeting as it took place between the archmage and the greater demon. After he had heard enough he launched himself from the darkness and struck the demon with a silver rod. The creature howled in pain as the archmage fluttered his robes and tried to escape.
The demon growled as its body seemed to flicker. It realized it was being called back to the darkness of the lower realms.
‘I’ll remember your face,’ the creature hissed. ‘And I will be back. If I have to tear empires apart you won’t run from me.’
‘Not for a year and a day at least,’ quipped the spellcaster back as the demon flickered and disappeared.
Thought to have been created a thousand years ago, during the Time of a Hundred Summoners to quell the overabundance of demonic forces running amok, many of these magic items have been destroyed or lost, more than likely by fiendish entities and their followers to keep do-gooders from foiling their plans.
