These staffs are a quasi-sentient magical instrument through which a Magical Being channels her or his magical powers to centralise the effects for more complex results. Most magical users can use magic without a staff, but the use of such a weapons can enchant magic and further increase its power, and reduce the damage using dangerous spells can do to the user.
Magic with a staff is usually performed with an incantation, but more experienced users can cast nonverbal spells, which conceal the spell until cast and may thereby prevent an opponent from adequately protecting him- or herself in time.
Staffs are manufactured by Magical Beings as part of their training. Only necromancers and wizards/witches are able to construct their own staff and take it with them as they travel across the lands of Amsnorth. While all magical beings use staffs during their trainings, they are not allowed them, as a young magical being can be easily corrupted and eager to impress, which can cause many troubles for them during their training.
Staffs were around 9,500 BPD when Jafier Heartan discovered his magical talents. To harvest magic and to prevent serious injury when performing such power, he created a staff to help protect himself from the serious damages that casting spells can inflict upon himself.
The first ever staff, named Glisterward was created, and ever since its creation, many more magical beings have attemtped to creat their own weapon. While many have succeded in crafting their own, there have been few who have failed, and they are exiled from the Order of Magical Beings.
Magical Beings during their early training as a mage and sorcerer are asked with learning all about the staff. During their written practices they study stafflore, which is a education that they all learn to understand the purpose of a staff, and how important it can be to them as they progress further on in their lives.
If a magical being is unable to create a staff, or can't understand the stafflore, they are exiled from the order with their powers stripped. This is to ensure that certain person does not fall corrputed and endanger their own selves as well as others, as staff help protect them from harm, and from evil spirits within the Vale.
Most staffs are long, thick stick like weapons that appear like an old man's walkingstick. They are created with a magical substance embedded into their core. These substances are mainly objects or body parts that can harvest magic such as: crystals, gems, sapphires, rubies, unicorn horns, griffon beak, basilisk fang, cyclops eye and fairy dust.
Staffs are created from mainly wood and care forged with stone and magic. Among the woods used are holly, ebony, oak, cherry, vine, rowan, cedar, ivy, rosewood, willow, elm, ash, yew, birch, aspen, and elder.Many Magical Beings use certain cores and wood to match their abilities and their moral selves. For example, a person with a bright heart and a good nature for kindess and love, would use sapphires and holly to create their staff. While someone with dark ambitions and a cruel nature, would use a basilisk fang along with ash or ivy.
Most magical beings are different, and no staff is created the same way. The most powerful combination of staffs are unicorn horns and elder, but it is very rare than any magical being will be able to craft this staff, as they require magic beyond most.
In almost all documented cases the magical being chooses their right wood and core to match their own selves, this is the make sure that magical being can use and push their magic to their own limits. While all magical beings can use magic without a staff, the staff assists them in almost everyway possible.Also a staff's length, much like its core, may symbolize something its owner. For example, the staff of the famous Orsimac reached seven feet in height due to his large size.
Any wizard can use another's staff, however their properties will not be as effective as they would its normal owner. The famous staff known as Glisterward, the staff of Jafier Heartan, was hunted down by hundreds of magical beings. Many Grand Wizards have used the staff, but none have been able to harvest its power as much as its original owner.
Staffs are not invincible, if they are hit directly with a spells that can weaken the staff's wood or core, the staff will shatter. If a staff with a cyclops eye for a core, is hit by a spiritual spell, the spell cast can suck the life from the eye, and therefore cause the staff to be of unuse, and eventually shatter into dust.
Although all staffs are crafted from wood, each of them cannot be destroyed by fire, as they have been created to prevent damage from such an element. However if enought force is applied to that certain wood, it can snap.
