Unholy Scepter

{{#set:Summary=This scepter allows the wielder to rule ghouls and ghasts, and both paralyzes and nauseates opponents.}}

The unholy scepter enables the wielder to rule up to 500 HD worth of ghouls and ghasts in exactly the same manner as a rod of rulership (see the SRD for details), save that no time limit applies to the scepter’s rulership ability. In addition, the sceptre strikes as a +3 unholy light mace, and all opponents struck by the scepter must make a Fortitude save (DC 20) or be paralyzed for 1d6+2 minutes as if struck by a ghoul. Finally, the sceptre can emit a nauseating stench equivalent to that of a ghast, requiring all creatures within 10 feet to make a Fortitude save (DC 20) or be wracked with nausea, suffering a -2 penalty on all attacks, saves, and skill checks for 1d6+4 minutes.

Type::Minor artifact; Strong evocation [evil] and necromancy; CL 19th; Weight 4 lb.
