A staff of fiendish darkness is a bone or ebony staff with a metal claw at one or both ends. They were used by the humans and drow serving demons and devils, and contain the darkness spell, and two each of the animate dead, dispel magic and summon monster IX spells. The last of these can only summon nightmares. If a good-aligned creature holds this staff, one level is temporarily drained until he or she puts it down. The staff is worth around 98,000 gold pieces.[1]
