The Wassail Wand

Here’s a new magic item that I included with A Fey’s Evil, my second published side-trek encounter now available on the DM’s Guild.

The Wassail Wand

Wand, Common (requires attunement by a spellcaster)

Fashioned from an apple branch, this short wand is believed to have been fashioned by one Hobb Nosthinger, an eccentric halfling sorcerer with a strong love of hot mulled cider. It is said he loved the drink so much that he invested a great deal of time and effort to craft a wand that would allow him to enjoy the beverage at any time.

This wand has 7 charges. While holding it, you can use an action to expend 1 of its charges to permanently turn any single pint of water-based liquid touched by the wand into an equal amount of steaming mulled cider. This transformation will not remove any magical, disease or poisonous effects that may already affect the liquid.

The wand regains 1d6+1 expended charges daily at dawn. If you expend the wand’s last charge, roll a d20. On a 1, the wand disintegrates into ash, leaving behind a strong rotten apple smell.
