The Signature Brand

Wand of Eternal Dragon’s Fire Breath
Created from the finest imported ivory and with an exquisitely carved base that into a crouching dragon. Infused with the red dragon’s breath of fire, this wand functions sans the tether of restraining charges, but rather it functions unerringly twice per day for fortunes of its astute wielder. Each individual use of the wand permits its user three horrific fiery dragon breaths for the next thirty seconds; a certain fiery death for any save for the most deft or luck-cursed opponents. Do not waste your time with pedestrian wands that produce a finite amount of magic missiles but rather invest in a wand from Auge, a wand that will never run short on charges, never fail to singe an opponent and never ever fail to disrupt a casual encounter.
ONLY 4,420 gp*. Now taking orders. Allow 3-6 days for delivery.

Auge’s Lore Book: During the final years of the last Great War on the Evening Isles, the artificers and wizards of a powerful noble wizard-family The MacCaugh’s, perfected a new variety of wand built around a crystal shard.

The development of the eternal wand allowed lesser arcane spellcasters; apprentices and the like, to take the place of war wizards during the final days of the Great War, supplementing their passive spells with more aggressive magics.

While lesser artificers have been searching for ways to streamline the process of creation, the technique is still in its infancy. The only sighting of these extremely rare wands is the ones found in the possession of Stormhaven Spellguards seemingly passed down from War-mage survivors or refugees from the front lines of this Great War.

Auge Note: It is my personal goals, which if this is to be my signature brand, I would like to be able to use my own breath in conjunction with a blast afforded from these wands, also reduce the number of blasts from three: 4d6, 2d6, 1d6 to just two blasts: 4d6 and 3d6. (I don’t see anyone using a standard action for just 1d6 fire damage.)

(Auge’s) Eternal Wand (MC 159) of Fire Breath (APG 221)
Price 4,420 gp (Cost to create 1,989 gp)
Body Slot: — (held) Weight: —
Caster Level: 5th Item Level: 9th
Aura: Faint evocation (fire)
Activation: 1 Standard action (command)
An eternal wand holds the single arcane spell Fire Breath (alchemist 2, sorcerer/wizard 2). Up to thrice during this spell’s duration (5 rounds or until discharged), you can belch forth a cone shaped burst of fire at a range of 15 feet as a standard action. The first cone deals 4d6 points of fire damage to every creature in the area. The second similar cone of flame deals 2d6 points of fire damage to every creature in the area. The third cone of flame deals 1d6 points of fire damage to every creature in the area. A successful Reflex save (DC 21) halves this damage. After the third cone of flame, the spell ends.

Any character who can cast arcane spells can activate the wand to use the spell contained in it, regard less of whether the spell appears on his class spell list. An eternal wand functions two times per day.
