Why wizards shouldn't leave their wand just laying around...

This comic came to me more or less by accidental inspiration, when I noticed in the previous comic how similar Sir Marko's fish skewer ended up being in appearance to Bayle's wand. For the D&D aficionados out there, the combination of Bayle's enchantments and Sir Marko's actions have indeed created a new magic item! 👇

"Wand of Fish Stank"
Wand, Uncommon (requires attunement by a spellcaster)
"This wand has 7 charges. While holding it, you can use an action to expend 1 of its charges to cast any of the following spells (save DC 15 if applicable) from the wand: Fog Cloud, Grease, or Alter Self (aquatic adaptation only). As a side effect, all spells cast from the wand create the strong odor of fish in the area of effect. The same side effect applies to all spells cast when using the wand as an arcane focus.
The wand regains 1d6 + 1 expended charges daily at dawn. If you expend the wand's last charge, roll a d20. On a 1, the wand crumbles into ashes and is destroyed... which is probably for the better." 🙄
