The staff of the magma falls is one of the destiny arms —a mighty weapon of the giants forged during the war against the quori.
The staff is made from a shaft of pure obsidian resembling a large dripping stalactite. Three
iron bands are placed along its length, and they appear to have melted the obsidian where they touch it. Each of these bands bears faintly glowing red symbols.
