|#1zombiegleemaxFeb 19, 2007 13:36:18||Can anyone here tell me what happened to the Staff of Magius after the Chaos War? I know Raistlin took it with him,but then it just kinda disappears.|
|#2zombiegleemaxFeb 19, 2007 21:53:27||There is some debate as to whether or not it was Raistlin who appeared at the end of Summer Flame.|
|#3zombiegleemaxFeb 20, 2007 16:52:31||Why? Who else would it have been?|
|#4zombiegleemaxFeb 20, 2007 19:59:29||Tamex, the False Metal. She of Many Colors and of None, The One God.|
|#5zombiegleemaxFeb 20, 2007 20:02:49||Oh. She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. But why do people think it was her instead of Raist?|
|#6zombiegleemaxFeb 20, 2007 20:04:52||Because Fizban lied about the Gods leaving to save their creation.|
|#7zombiegleemaxFeb 20, 2007 20:07:57||But wouldn't that mean that the Queen of Many Colors and of None would be impersonating Fizban, instead of Raistlin? And I thought the the theft of the world drained She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named of her power. Would she have the energy to impersonate Fizban and Raist?|
|#8zombiegleemaxFeb 21, 2007 16:09:51||Yes because that is what happened.|
|#9lancereaverFeb 22, 2007 8:25:40||Did they say that was what happened in War of Souls or something, because I'm kind of finding it hard to believe Takhisis would impersonate Either Fizban or Raistlin.|
|#10zombiegleemaxFeb 22, 2007 10:42:15||She is a deceiver after all.|
|#11lancereaverFeb 22, 2007 12:21:20||True, but still, I don't know.|
|#12zombiegleemaxFeb 22, 2007 15:21:07||So was Raistlin a fake throughout the whole story, or just at the end?|
|#13zombiegleemaxFeb 22, 2007 18:35:43||Just at the end.|
|#14zombiegleemaxFeb 22, 2007 18:51:03||Good. I thought so. Also, it mentions somewhere in the DL campaign setting that the Last Conclave was attended by Palin, The Shadow Sorceror, and the Master of the Tower. I know the Shadow Sorceror was Takhisis, but who was the Master of the Tower?|
|#15zombiegleemaxFeb 22, 2007 23:20:38||He is the embodiment of the Tower of Wayreth.|
|#16zombiegleemaxFeb 23, 2007 15:47:49||Oh. Ok. I had no idea that the Tower of Wayreth was sentient.|
|#17leowarFeb 24, 2007 13:38:41||Why is this staff so important? |
From what I have read it isn't a mega powerfull staff.
the staff only has the spells:
Are there more spells this staff possess?
|#18zombiegleemaxFeb 24, 2007 17:05:44||It's not the power of the Staff that makes it important. It is important because it was weilded by Magius, Raistlin, and Palin, some of the most powerful mages on Krynn. It's powers vary from person to person. And the spells it carries are : |
It is also a plus 2 quarterstaff and 3 times per day you can enlarge certain spells.
So it is important. It's one of the most famous artifacts on Krynn.
|#19zombiegleemaxFeb 24, 2007 17:09:48||It can extend spells as well.|
|#20zombiegleemaxFeb 24, 2007 22:56:00||You can also deliver arcane fire through it.|
A big deflection bonus to AC
|#21zombiegleemaxFeb 25, 2007 22:31:21||+3 isnt that big of a bonus|
|#22draco_paladineFeb 26, 2007 16:50:29||+3 is a pretty big bonus when u are a wizard though.|
|#23zombiegleemaxFeb 26, 2007 22:07:12||True, true.|
|#24zombiegleemaxMar 08, 2007 12:54:20|
+3 isnt that big of a bonus
Ahhh one of the powers unlocked by Raistlin made it a +6, which yes is big.
|#25zombiegleemaxMar 08, 2007 15:27:43||what was the power that palin used against chaos? that seems pretty uber.|
as well, the dl campaign book states explicitly that no one knows the full extent of the powers it posesses and that the dm should make up whatever he needs to add to the story for the character who weilds it.
|#26zombiegleemaxMar 08, 2007 16:09:12||What Palin used against Chaos was a 9th-level spell called Magius's Light of Truth. It is detailed in the DL Campaign Setting. Requires an artifact as a focus.|
|#27zombiegleemaxMar 09, 2007 5:44:04||I guess I did not notice that it needed an artifact to cast the spell. So Palin was at least 18th or 19th level by the end of Summer Flame?|
|#28mindolinMar 09, 2007 11:26:27||No, he essentially used a scroll of that spell. And the artifact used was the Staff of Magius.|
|#29zombiegleemaxMar 09, 2007 14:55:40||IIRC Palin cast the spell from the Spellbook of Magius or something like that.|
|#30zombiegleemaxMar 09, 2007 15:38:50|
IIRC Palin cast the spell from the Spellbook of Magius or something like that.
He did. He probably used the Spellbook as a scroll, which was why the spellbook was burnt up at the end of Summer Flame.
|#31zombiegleemaxMar 10, 2007 8:02:51||According to Weis, the Staff is missing as well. No one knows where it is.|
|#32zombiegleemaxMar 10, 2007 18:17:26||I'm saying the gods of magic fought over it after Raistlin and the Dark Queen died, because Raistlin wore all three colored robes. They Staff was split into 3 peices. I'm sending my PC's on a quest to each of the moons to find each piece. I think I'll call the campaign "Lunitari's Tears"|
|#33zombiegleemaxMar 11, 2007 10:39:04||Raistlin was never officiually a white robed mage.|
|#34zombiegleemaxMar 11, 2007 16:54:03||He still wore the White Robes in The Soulforge.|
|#35zombiegleemaxMar 11, 2007 18:57:56||That was to pay tribute to his teacher who was a white robe. Once he passed the Test, where the Robes really matter, he never wore the White Robes.|
|#36zombiegleemaxMar 11, 2007 20:12:17|
That was to pay tribute to his teacher who was a white robe. Once he passed the Test, where the Robes really matter, he never wore the White Robes.
It still counts.
|#37zombiegleemaxMar 11, 2007 21:14:41||No, not if he was never a mage of the white robes.|
|#38zombiegleemaxMar 14, 2007 16:33:34||Yes, I know. But he WORE the White Robes. I'm guessing that that may have led some White Robes to rumor that Raistlin was once a White Robed Mage. Solinari may have used that to justify the fact that the Staff should have been left with him. It works for my plot.:D|
|#39zombiegleemaxMar 14, 2007 19:12:27||What a streeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeetch of the imagination.|
|#40lancereaverMar 19, 2007 8:10:27||I'm going to have to agree with Treymordin on this one.|
|#41zombiegleemaxMar 19, 2007 8:27:44||Thanks Lance! :D|
|#42zombiegleemaxMar 19, 2007 11:55:58||Why have it broken? Why not just give it to a wizard in one of their tests. That is what happened with my Test for the character that has his name. A sorcerer was trying to destroy the Staff to use its power to reclaim the Elven Nations (I think the character was a Silvanesti Duskblade) and I had to defeat him to save the Magic of the Staff and was rewarded the staff as a part of my Test.|
|#43draco_paladineMar 19, 2007 17:23:04||Solinari is not an idiot. To think that Raistlin was actually a member of the white robes is impetuous. he thought them as 'weak'.|
|#44zombiegleemaxMar 19, 2007 18:05:17||That is true. Raistlin would never wear the White Robes because he was not good.|
|#45lancereaverMar 20, 2007 8:03:34||That's correct, I remember, in Brothers Majere, that one chick (I forget her name now) told Raistlin that he had not the patience to stay in the middle. She said that he would eventually move to one side, and the way Raistlin acts, one would have to be a fool to believe he would move to the white robes.|
|#46zombiegleemaxMar 20, 2007 9:31:36||Raistlin, as written, would have not made a good white robe. Raistlin made decesions in his life that a white robe would never do, like killing his brother, making a deal with a powerful Black Robe.|
|#47zombiegleemaxApr 01, 2007 18:45:23||I kind of like that no one officially has the Staff of Magius anymore. It helps players to be able to claim it for their own in their own games, like my Red Robe did.:D|
|#48lancereaverMay 10, 2007 8:15:12||Raistlin had the staff during Dragons of a Vanished Moon.|
Speaking of Raistlin, I got a question. Technically, Raistlin died at the end of Legends. But he was still a physical being in Dragons of Summer Flame. Then in Dragons of a Vanished Moon, he was sort of in between. He seemed a physical being to Gerard, but the gods said he was just a spirit. So, what is that about?
|#49zombiegleemaxMay 10, 2007 9:21:38||It is another mystery of the Master of Past and Present.|
|#50lancereaverMay 10, 2007 10:09:23||Befuddles the mind.|
|#51zombiegleemaxMay 10, 2007 14:00:38||Unless Mina has done it to you my friend.|
|#52lancereaverMay 10, 2007 14:22:36||Probably.|
|#53zombiegleemaxMay 10, 2007 14:56:00||Perhaps, if I deign you worthy, I will use my considerable arcane might to undo what has been done, but I must research to see what components would be needed.|
|#54lancereaverMay 11, 2007 8:07:11||Oh, could you?|
|#55zombiegleemaxMay 11, 2007 9:55:27||Depends if you want to be set free or not.|
|#56lancereaverMay 11, 2007 10:12:08||Well, on the one hand, Mina is GREAT in bed, but you don't need to know the details of that. But on the other hand, if I am cursed, I should probably get this curse off of me.|
|#57zombiegleemaxMay 11, 2007 11:24:02||Too bad it is only in your mind.|
