Geb, the Egyptian god of the earth, stands tall with a broad, muscular build that exudes a sense of strength and resilience. His skin is the deep, rich brown of fertile soil, with the texture of cracked earth etched across his chest and arms. His hair is a wild tangle of long, curly locks the color of rusted iron, falling to his broad shoulders in waves.

His face is ruggedly handsome, with piercing green eyes that seem to glow with an inner fire. A thick, bushy beard frames his strong jawline, giving him an air of wisdom and authority. On his forehead, a single emerald rests, glinting in the light like a beacon of power.

Geb’s clothing is simple, consisting of a loincloth made of animal hide, and a thick belt adorned with precious stones and minerals. His feet are bare, his toes digging deep into the earth beneath him as if rooted there.

As the god of the earth, vegetation, fertility, and earthquakes, Geb is a powerful force in the Egyptian pantheon. He is responsible for the growth and nourishment of crops, the stability of the land, and the protection of those who live upon it. With his earthquakes, he can shake the earth itself, unleashing destruction on those who dare to oppose him.

Despite his fearsome reputation, Geb is a gentle and nurturing deity, who cares deeply for the creatures who inhabit his earth. He is often depicted with a serene expression, his hands cupped together in a gesture of benevolence.

Geb’s ultimate goal is to ensure that his earth is healthy and thriving, providing a bountiful harvest and a safe haven for all who live upon it. He is willing to do whatever it takes to protect his domain, even if that means unleashing his devastating earthquakes upon those who would seek to harm it.

Staff of Earthly Might

This six-foot-long staff was crafted from a single piece of petrified oak and crowned with a large ruby diadem. There are no markings along the shaft that would indicate its function.

It is a +5 bane (air creatures)/defending/disruption weapon.

The Staff of Earthly Might has the following properties:

All spells are equal in effect to those cast by a 20 th level cleric.

The Staff of Geb (Staff of the Earth)

Weapon (staff), artifact (requires attunement by a cleric, druid, or sorcerer)

This staff is made of a solid piece of obsidian, carved into the shape of a twisting tree. It hums with the power of Geb and can create and control earthquakes with a mere touch.


  • You gain a +3 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with this staff.
  • The staff has 10 charges. While holding it, you can use an action to expend 1 or more of its charges to cast the Earthquake spell (save DC 20) from it. For each charge you expend beyond the first, the spell’s radius increases by 20 feet. The staff regains 1d8+2 expended charges daily at dawn.
  • When you cast the Earthquake spell using the staff, you can choose to cause a targeted earthquake in a specific location within 1 mile of you, rather than creating the spell’s standard area of effect. This targeted earthquake has a radius of 60 feet and deals double damage to structures, objects, and constructs.
  • While holding the staff, you have resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage from non-magical weapons.
  • The staff can be used as a spellcasting focus for your cleric, druid, or sorcerer spells.

Destroying the Staff

The Staff of Geb can only be destroyed by being submerged in lava at the heart of an active volcano while an earthquake is occurring.

Geb, the great god of the earth, is a being of immense power and influence. He is said to have been born from the body of his father, Shu, and his mother, Tefnut, during the creation of the world. From the moment of his birth, Geb was imbued with a deep connection to the earth and its life-giving powers.

As he grew older, Geb began to shape the earth and all its vegetation in his image, imbuing it with the power of his divine essence. He created mountains and valleys, forests and meadows, and breathed life into every living creature that inhabited his domain.

In the 1450s, Geb remains one of the most powerful gods in the Egyptian pantheon. He is a god of great wisdom and foresight, and his actions are always driven by his desire to protect and nurture the earth and its inhabitants.

At this time, Geb is deeply troubled by the actions of mortals, who have begun to exploit the earth and its resources for their own selfish ends. He watches as forests are cut down, rivers are polluted, and the balance of nature is upset. Geb sees the suffering of the creatures he has created and feels their pain as his own.

Determined to protect his domain, Geb has taken action against those who would harm the earth. He has caused earthquakes and other natural disasters to strike those who would exploit the land, in an effort to make them see the error of their ways.

But Geb’s actions have not gone unnoticed by the other gods. Some have accused him of overstepping his bounds and interfering with the affairs of mortals. Geb knows that his actions may bring about the wrath of the gods, but he cannot stand idly by and watch as his creation is destroyed.

Despite the challenges he faces, Geb remains steadfast in his mission to protect the earth and all its inhabitants. He continues to work tirelessly, shaping the land and breathing life into every living creature, in the hope that one day all beings will come to see the value and beauty of his creation.
