The Key to Perdition, The spine of Cain, The Rod of Ruin, The Murderwand
Supposedly created by the including it’s creation by the Devil himself from the spine of Caine, it’s appearance 500 years ago coincided with resurgence of magic in the world and the start of the Black Plague. A short time later, the devil was deceived by "An Angel", who stole the artifact and created a woven bone casket and perfect vault made of white marble to conceal it. The vault's location was revealed to a select few who built the synagog over the site.
300 years ago an attack on the community caused the original High Rabbi Loew to create the golem to “protect his people”. It’s real purpose was to guard the Artifact. A generation later, the remaining elders, woke Joshua to move the artifact away from their holy synagogue. Removed from the vault, tt’s power was now checked now only by the casket. Slowly the wand began to reach out to the last being that held it. Joshua would dream of the wand over the next 150 years until the present Rabbi enclave woke him to deal with the Bravóst militia, lead by Edmond Braddock and members of the party.
Having defeated the mad Golem of Prague, the wand is now in Edmond's possession.
