Branch of Akrimmon
This staff? It's the Branch of Akrimmon. The Tree gifted it to me.
The Branch of Akrimmon is the staff of the High Druid of the Circle of Mynelion. It follows the position, not the person, though since there haven't been any other High Druids than Vinior it has never belonged to anyone else.
Measuring about one and a half meter in height, the staff is surprisingly plain for such an important item. One would think that the staff of the High Druid would be magical, but there's no trace of magical energy in the staff. Some have suggested decorating it with some carvings or trinkets, but Vinior just discard the idea and says the staff should stay in the form it had when it was given to him.
A Gift from the Tree
It wasn't long after the Circle of Mynelion was established. Vinior was meditating by the Tree, Akrimmon. A branch fell to the ground with a heavy thud, almost uncomfortably close to where he sat. He reached for the branch and felt a wave of generosity from the Tree, as it wanted to tell him that it was a gift. Vinior gladly picked up this gifted relic from the most holy tree of the druids. The Tree seemed pleased.
Or so Vinior himself says. He's never seen without the Branch close by. If it is as old as Vinior claims, it's about two thousand years old. How this wooden staff hasn't rotted by now is a mystery. Yet, Akrimmon is a very special tree, and it is still standing. Maybe some of the divine power of the Tree prevents the staff from decaying.
