Hi again, I have a curiosity about the Deathstaff because in the Grand History of Realms , they are referred as multiple ones.

546 DR Year of the Rusted Sabre
The Halruaan wizard Gulkuluster begins creating a series of powerful wands
that bear his name and are known as Deathstaffs.

However in other entries it's referred to there being only one. It's considered a major artifact soo why the change? Also...would be other Deathstaffs indentical to the one we know about...or different?

What do you think? As usual thanks a lot in advance for your support.

Maybe make a minor name change - have the lesser, multiple items called 'Deathstaves', and just have the singular, greater artifact be the Deathsaff. (so different things altogether).

The original was a wand and is detailed in Ed's Wyrms of the North article in Dragon #246 (Malaeragoth). It was changed to an artifact and a staff in the Shining South accessory (3E). Markustay's suggestion is a good one. The artifact was Gulkuluster's original crafting while the others were crafted by his apprentices and descendants.
