ROD OF PRACTICAL MAGIC PRICE 25,000 gp
Slot —; CL 17th; Weight 5 lbs.
Aura strong universal
These rods are of very plain construction, being made of a single piece of brown oak, with the command words for the wand’s activation painted along one side in neat black paint. Though despised by the eccentric, these functional wands are prized by those who believe magic should make everyday business more efficient.
A rod of practical magic can produce 3 different effects by using one of 3 different command words printed on the side. With the first command word, a rod of practical magic can magically transmute up to 10 coins into any number of coins whose total value is the same as the transmuted coins; the newly created coins are of the same realm as the transmuted coins. This function of the rod can also transmute up to 10 gemstones into any number of gems of the same kind whose total value is the same as the transmuted gems (for example, it could turn 10 small amethysts worth 20 gp each into a single 200 gp amethyst).
The second function the rod allows a wounded creature to act normally for a short time. As a move action, the rod of practical magic can be used on a disabled creature with 0 hit points, allowing that creature to perform a full round's worth of actions on his next turn without risking being reduced below 0 hit points.
Finally, the rod can be used to make travel easier, allowing a creature targeted by the wand to take 10 on all Climb, Fly, and Swim checks for 1 minute.Construction Requirements Cost 12,500 gp

Whenever a creature within 30 feet casts a spell or uses as spell-like ability, the wielder of a rod of metamgic aid can point the rod at the caster as an immediate action; if she does, she may choose to apply any metamagic feat she possesses to that spell without increasing its casting time or spell level.
