Staff Of Tartaros

(Inspired by Tartaros staff artifact in Dark Age of Camelot MMORPG)

This is a +3 staff, it raises the wielder's level by three for the purposes of spell effects (range, duration, damage, etc). On a natural 17-20 in melee, it casts a Vampiric Touch spell and drains the target 8d6, passing half the amount to the wielder as healing. Claimed by Fenric.
