Staff of Fiery Power

Staff of Fiery Power – as an enchanted item (using Sorcery)
The staff of fiery power is a very potent magic item, with offensive and defensive abilities. It is usually topped with a glistening ruby, its shaft straight and smooth. It has the following powers:
-          Rain of Fire (Improved; 16 yards) (1 charge) – Pyramid #3-63, p. 9;
-          Summon Fire Elemental (1 charge);
-          Wall of Fire 2 (1 charge);
-          Delayed Blast Fireball 4 (2 charges).
The staff of fiery power acts as a quarterstaff enchanted with Accuracy 2 (it gives the wielder +2 to skill rolls to hit). It also passively grants the wielder and all his gear DR 20 against fire.
A staff of fiery power can be used for a retributive strike, requiring it to be broken by its wielder. (If this breaking of the staff is purposeful and declared by the wielder, it can be performed as a Ready maneuver.) All charges currently in the staff are instantly released in an 8-yard radius, dealing 12d burning damage to everything in the area. The character breaking the staff has a 50% chance of traveling to another plane of existence, but if he does not, the explosive release of spell energy destroys him. Once empty of charges, the staff of power cannot be used for a retributive strike.
The staff has SM-3, DR 2, HP 13, 4 lb.
