    Great! I’m thinking about a Staff of Many-Eyes, and/or Wands of the Beholder…something along those lines.

    Ten metal stalks sprout from this grotesquely formed bronze crown. At the tip of each stalk, a different gem gazes like a glistening eye. These strange crowns can shoot
    rays from eyelike gems, much like the attacks of their namesake. Each gem can fire a different ray a single time at a target (doing this burns out the gem). Each ray extends up to 30 feet and requires a ranged touch attack to successfully strike a target. Each ray functions as a particular spell (though the ray only affects a single target):

    • charm monster (Will DC 17 negates)
    • charm person (Will DC 17 negates)
    • deep slumber (Will DC 17 negates)
    • disintegrate (Fort DC 17 partial)
    • fear (Will DC 17 partial)
    • finger of death (Fort DC 17 partial)
    • flesh to stone (Fort DC 17 negates)
    • inflict moderate wounds (Will DC 17
    half)
    • slow (Will DC 17 negates)
    • telekinesis (violent thrust against a target of up to 325 pounds; Will DC 17 negates )

    Prerequisites: Craft Wondrous Item, charm monster, charm person, deep slumber, disintegrate, fear, finger of death, flesh to stone, inflict moderate wounds, slow, telekinesis.

    Cost to Create: 10,000 gp, 800 XP, 20 days.

    Amulet of Metaspell Influence

    XP Value: 3,000 ; GP Value: 15,000
    (2E Tome of Magic; Reference: Encyclopedia Magica Volume 01, pg36)

    This amulet does not appear to have any magical function (although it radiates magic if detection is used) until it is worn by someone using one of the dilation, far-reaching, or extension spells. When such a spell is cast, the amulet adds 50% to the functional effect of the spell. For example, if extension /is used to increase the duration of a 3rd-level spell by 50%, the wearer of this amulet can add another 50%, raising it to a 75% extension effect.

    Amulet of Power
    XP Value: 12,000 GP; Value: 60,000
    (DRAGON Magazine 5; Encyclopedia Magica Volume 01, pg39)

    Usable by all Spellcasters, this object serves to periodically boost latent magical energy. One day each week, the number of spells (of each level) the caster may perform, and the range, duration, and power (dice, area, number affected, etc.) of those spells, is increased by 50%. An enchanter could, for example, do 6-4-3-1 spells on one day a week, rather than the usual 4-3-2-1. (Always round fractions down.) Due to the increase in spell capabilities, the target’s saving throw is augmented by+3. Upon acquiring the amulet of power, a new user must wear it for 30 consecutive days before it melds properly to his or her mental capacities. After that period, the amulet becomes fully functional. Any attempts to make use of the power boost before the 30-day period is completed are all in vain.

    High Anvil of the Dwarves
    XP Value: 5,000 GP Value: 50,000
    (DRAGON Magazine 58; Encyclopedia Magica Volume 01, pg51)

    The skill of dwarf metalcrafters is legendary, and through the ages they have continued to find ways of improving their smithing abilities. At some time within the last several centuries, dwarves learned how to create a magical device that would make them even more skilled as armorers, weapon makers, and smiths. The great cost of creating a high anvil, however, has kept the number of these items down to a precious few. Only a very large enclave can afford to make one—high anvils are never found in the shops of dwarven armorers, weapon makers, or smiths located in cities and towns—the danger of theft is too great.

    High anvils are large, elaborately carved, and forged from an alloy of adamantite and steel. They radiate a faint aura of magic. The anvils weigh about 175 pounds and cannot be easily moved or carried, and are often fixed or welded to the floor of the main armory of dwarven colonies.
    The workmanship involved in the forging and decoration of a high anvil represents the best that the dwarves of the clan can offer, frequently adorned with depictions of great events in the clan’s history. While dwarves hold their high anvils to be beyond price, a realistic appraisal of one’s worth would probably range from 30,000 to 60,000 gold pieces.

    When used for metalworking, a high anvil adds +50% to the skill level of dwarven armorers, and doubles their efficiency, effectively cutting armor construction time in half. Dwarven smiths using a high anvil have doubled efficiency when forging any item, and weapon makers may construct axes, swords, and the like at three times the normal rate, working them on a high anvil. Nondwarf characters or creatures who use a high anvil (a very rare event, since dwarves are extremely protective of their treasures) have +25% added to their skill as armorers but enjoy no other benefits.

    The increase in skill level and decrease in construction time are not permanent and only apply when a high anvil is used. Mithral and adamantite alloys can be worked with greater ease on a high anvil, and anything forged on one is of the higher quality. A high anvil is created by a long and involved
    process of crafting and enchantment. The physical work upon the Anvil takes between 24 and 36 months, and can only begin after the members of the clan have taken 6d4 months to decide on the anvil’s shape, design, and decorations. Once the anvil has been forged, it must undergo a ritual blessing by the most powerful dwarven priest in the clan, and 4d4 other priest assistants. (The main priest must be at least 6th level, and a member of the same clan as the dwarves who forged the anvil.) The blessing takes ld4+4 days, and the clan’s patron deity is invoked during the final enchantments.

    High anvils are not commonly found in treasure hoards. One might be discovered in the ruins of a dwarven stronghold, but even if the clan had been destroyed or driven off, another clan would try to recover the anvil to keep it from falling into the hands of another race. Dwarves who do manage to gain possession of a high anvil (from nondwarves, of course, since dwarves do not
    steal from each other) gain 10,000 experience points; the award is half as great for nondwarves who come to own one.
