An Archmage of Winter.jpg
The staff of the Winter archmage is a powerful phlegmatic staff.


The Phlegmatic Staff taps upon the power of the Realm of Winter to guide the bearer to a greater understanding of the leaching of power that is involved in ritual magic. These arcane implements are employed throughout the Empire to fortify the abilities of Winter ritualists.

It is usual to see such an implement engraved with Naeve, the Rune of Hunger or Irremais, the Rune of Wisdom.

The staff of the Archmage of Winter is a version of the Phlegmatic Staff crafted to a secret pattern, and grants twice as much power to the wielder.
