Default Re: Staffs as Traps

It is one thing for a wizard to have their staff punish someone who would deprive them of it or use it against them, but it is altogether different for the wizard to actually want them to pick it up. Under Staff's description is this: "If anyone other than the owner of a staff picks it up against the owner’s will ..." [emphasis mine]. This proviso allows a friend to hold the wizard's staff without harm. It also means that the staff can't be used as a trap, since the intent would be for someone to pick it up and thus they are not going against the wizard's will. If you want that kind of trap, learn Explosive Gem.
