The Tentacle Staff is the Drow quest artifact in SLASH 6. Its base item is a quarterstaff. In this variant, a Drow is simply an Elf with a chaotic starting alignment; lawful or neutral Elves are simply known as Elves.
The Staff's attack can drain life from its targets ("The writhing tentacles draw the life from <target>!").
The variant dNetHack contains an artifact flail named the Tentacle Rod, which is a quest artifact for renegade Drow Priests, Rangers, Rogues, and Wizards. It lacks the Staff's drain life attack and other properties, but it can deal multiple attacks and inflict status ailments on targets. It also decreases the chance of spell failure and absorbs curses while wielded.
