Rod of Burning Blood

Source Villain Codex pg. 93
Aura moderate evocation CL 10th
Slot none; Price 11,050 gp; Weight 4 lbs.

Description

This rod of blackened iron is inset with rubies and functions as a +1 cunningUE light mace. Unholy water poured over the rod is absorbed, giving the rod 1 charge per vial. When the rod strikes a creature, the wielder can expend 1 charge from the rod to spray the creature with burning blood from the weapon’s head. This burning blood deals 1d6 points of damage (half fire, half unholy).

Alternatively, the wielder can expend 5 charges at once to create a spray of burning blood in a 15-foot cone. Creatures in the area take 5d4 points of damage (half fire, half unholy; Reflex DC 17 half). The rod can hold at most 10 charges at any one time. Charging the rod with unholy water is a standard action that provokes attacks of opportunity.
