A conversation heard in the Ravens Nest Inn between two intoxicated older patrons


"Oh, you want to hear of the Staff of Fury do you....?"

"Please, I am interested in such artefacts"

"Very well my friend, listen close. The Staff of Fury is a strange object, certainly it is not something most Sorcerers or Wizards would seek, no, it is for a far more specific user. Arcane spellcasters pride themselves on their spellcraft and their intelligence or charisma, this mythical staff would not sate such needs, rather it would be considered nothing but an attractive trinket to most of those folk. The sort who would be interested in the staff are a different folk altogether, and rare my friend, very rare. They are the spellswords...no you drunk fool not a Battlemage, they are just mages who can use most weapons, I’m talking about Spellsword. Mages who are also well trained fighters, this is the staff for them my friend, oh yes. While it increases the spellcasters natural abilities somewhat it truly specialises in aiding them in true battles, it can drive them into a blind rage giving them inhuman strength and speed in the height of battle and while holding it they are better fighters. It is said that the majority of owners of this mythical staff have been Half Dragons of sorts, it seems that they have a better chance of not being decapitated and laughed at for choosing such a strange career, coupled with their innate magical abilities and strength."

"A truly amazing sounding artefact....tell me my friend....do you know where it lies now...?"

The old man cackles

"I do, as it happens. And I am happy to say that you will not get your grubby hands on it to sell to some greasy merchant my friend. It once lay deep underground under Mount Tyran itself, left there by its last owner, a mad Half Black Dragon, he knew his life was up you see, but he could not bear the thought of another using his precious staff even after he left the mortal world, so he blocked it up deep within the mountain...until recently it lay there undisturbed"

"How do you mean until recently?"

"Well, my friend, just a decade a tall Half Gold Dragon, half bleeding to death and close to collapsing entered this very Inn with a Staff wrapped in linen in his claws. I got the healer and while he was being dealt with I snuck a peak at the Staff, I could see it was one of great power. When I asked the Half Gold about it he uttered one word....fury...I knew then that he had found the Staff...now how about another drink my friend, this tale has made me parched."

"...but where is the Half Gold now!? Where is the Staff....?"

The old man sighs, clearly wanting that drink and an end to a story he obviously had told many a time

"The Staff? I do not know....The Half Gold....well he’s in some crypt somewhere, he didn’t survive his wounds...and the staff disappeared...perhaps it doesn’t even exist anymore. But things like that tend to spring up again when you least expect them to do"
