Mage Knight: Machination
Rod of Fencing
This fancifully etched wand gleams with gold leaf but seems to be endowed with an "edge".
This rod strikes as a + 1 rapier that deals force damage. The wielder of a Rod of Fencing adds her Intelligence modifier to attack rolls made with the rod. In addition, the wielder can take a penalty of as much as 3 on her attack roll and add the same number (+3 or less) as a deflection bonus to her armor class. This number may not exceed the wielder’s base attack bonus. The changes to attack rolls and Armor Class last until the wielder’s next action.
Moderate evocation; CL 8th; Craft Rod, Craft Magic Arms and Armor, persistent blade; Price 64,000 gp.
While Magestone energy can provide enough magical energy to levitate a small object, the force is not strong enough to puncture armor or cause even the most minor damage. But when used correctly, Tezla’s Principle of Deflection can allow a Magestone wielder to ward off even the most serious of blows. —Maleficius
