The Rod of Seven Parts, formerly known as the Rod of Law, is a powerful artifact in the World of Greyhawk campaign setting.
The Rod of Seven Parts, when whole, is a 5-foot-long pole. The command words for each piece are "Ruat," "Coelum," "Fiat," "Justitia," "Ecce," "Lex," and "Rex," which collectively make up a Latin phrase that translates into "Though chaos reign, let justice be done. Behold! Law is king."
Eons ago, in a great war between the Wind Dukes of Aaqa and the Queen of Chaos, the Rod of Law was used in the Battle of Pesh to imprison the Queen's greatest general, Miska the Wolf-Spider, Prince of Demons. The Rod was broken in this conflict and the seven fragments scattered across the world. Each piece has its own powers, and the more parts of the rod a user possesses the more powerful each one becomes.
