Carved from a single piece of darkwood and topped by the head of a hooded cobra, this staff functions as a +3 defending darkwood quarterstaff. Additionally, once per day when the wielder hits a creature with the staff, she can cause the carved cobra head to bite her target. The attack deals an additional 1d6 points of damage and injects the target with a virulent poison (injury; save Fort DC 20; frequency 1/round for 6 rounds; effect 1d2 Str and 1d2 Con damage; cure 2 consecutive saves).
