A rod of mirrors was a magical rod that protected against gazes and illusions and granted the power of true sight.[1]

Powers[edit | edit source]

It gave the holder the ability to make an insubstantial round mirror at its top end, two feet (0.6 m) in diameter, which lasted for eleven minutes, once a day. When the holder looked through the back of the mirror, they could see what lay beyond as with the spell true seeing.[1]

The holder was also immune to all gaze powers and illusion (pattern) magic coming from the other side of the mirror.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

The first of these rods was created by the wizard Glendar, who was a patron of adventurers that despised basilisks and medusae, in order to protect them.[1]

Creation[edit | edit source]

Crafting such a rod required the spells obscuring mist and true seeing. Each was worth around 40,000 gold pieces around 1372 DR.[1]
