Wand of the Leech
The young wizard, brimming with confidence, moved through the crowd, eyes on his target. He had practiced the word to control the wand in his hand many times. He took one more deep breath and then uttered that word while pointing the wand at his target.
Stork at once grimaced in pain, realizing that some detrimental magic had been cast upon him in the crowd. He glared from face to face, then he saw a look of abject fear. The wand snapped in his direction again. This time Stork’s eyes opened in pain and fear as he staggered.
‘I’ll eat your heart for this,’ the wizard snarled at the young magic-user.
The apprentice flicked the wand one more time and Stork howled in pain as he dropped to the cobblestones.
A flash of colors exploded in front of the young mage as Vistis appeared. Stork pointed a finger at his attacker.
‘You’d better be out of this town before I recover, or you won’t live to see another day,’ he hissed in agony.
Not wanting to have his heart or liver or anything else torn out and eaten by the sadistic magic-user the young wizard hastily packed and went on the run. The elation from the power he had stolen from Stork had at once ebbed and now flowed away, leaving him scared for his life.
Also known as the Wand of Weakening, this magical wand can drain a hardened warrior or rival spellcaster rather easily, rendering them weak and at the mercy of the magic item’s bearer.
