Long Description

This is a ceremonial rod used to maintain order during religious functions, serving as both a symbol of its wielder's authority and a heavy stick with which to hit especially unruly followers about the head. The shaft appears to have been eaten away by industrious polyps, with several sections of its salt-stained ironwood having been replaced with pale yellow coral forming complex geometric patterns all the way down its length. At the top of the rod is a hefty and rather pointy lump of coral that looks like it was just broken off a reef, turning it into an unusual warhammer of a sort.

It looks like it could hold two rituals in its coral section and ironwood section.

The coral section is empty and is linked to the ironwood section.

The ironwood section is empty and is not dependent on any other part of the coral-etched verge.

Appraises As

The coral-etched verge is about four feet long and about six inches wide. It is made of sacred coral and could be used as a weapon of type mace.
