Mind Stave

A Miststave -- iconic weapon of a Harlequin Shadowseer

A Miststave is an exotic melee weapon that is utilised exclusively by the enigmatic Eldar Harlequins, particularly the powerful psychic players known as Shadowseers. Traditionally, every Shadowseer carries this iconic weapon -- its complex manufacture channels their mental force to crush armour plates and shatter bones. Against living victims, even a glancing blow from such a stave scrambles their perceptions, clouding the mind with contradictory illusions and reducing sight to a slow-motion blur. The Miststave is the Shadowseer's sign of office, and its tip is a totem of the Laughing God; the front a laughing face, the back a grinning skull.
