The Rod of Wonder is an artifact created by the human Wild Magic Wizard Lum the Mad. Legends say Lum was obsessed with probability and chaos.
Lum’s reputation was well known and none of the other powerful wizards trusted anything more than to walk off distracted by a lizard or some such in the battle with Ruin. But his power could not be ignored, especially when he showed up to the gathering of the most powerful wizards in the land riding a giant black dragon.
They later learned it was just an illusion to get to point A to point B as he put it and then changed the subject to the improbability of chickens.
Bards say he spent most of the afternoon before the battle pestering the other mages in their preparations with wild magic theories, explaining solutions to paradoxes and trying to get them to engage in what he called “trust exercises.”
After the battle Lum looked around at all the destruction and famously said “Well, that was easy. You know where to find me.” He then cast a Wish spell and summoned a flying carriage drawn by two giant pink geese to fly home to Sunshire.
A mage asked Lum why he didn’t just teleport. His reply was, “It’s not the destination – it’s the journey.”
