The Wand of Orcus

The wand is a black obsidian and iron rod topped with the skull of a human hero once slain by Orcus. It is considered a Major Artifact. It grants the wielder the ability to kill any mortal creature, but it slowly drives the person who owns it insane and eventually could turn them into a demon if they allow it. Even one of the ravens seems to be extra cautious around it.

The group finds it through a portal. They are sent by the ravens and although the purpose of them interjecting in a ritual are unclear, the group took the staff and returned to The Maw with it in-hand. It is unknown what the ritual was supposed to do with the wand. While wielding it, the holder feels no different, but any member of the group that has relinquished it to another has felt a weight fall off their shoulder, as if a power had a grip on them and let go.
