The rod of leadership was a magical item that could be found in Zakhara, the Land of Fate.[1][2]


This item appeared as a stout rod that could actually be used as a potent melee weapon.[1][2]


Coveted by warriors and priests alike, the rod of leadership inspired all those within 120 yards (110 m) of the wielder with fanatical loyalty and morale.[1][2]

Those within 30 yards (27 m) of the wielder were completely immune to all forms of magically induced fear.[1][2]

When wielded as a weapon, the rod of leadership could paralyze targets at the will of the wielder, though using this power drained the rod of all magical properties.[1][2]
