Is the rod supposed to have a single persons intellect within it or several apprentice's collective intellect?
The written text seems to imply multiple minds inside the rod.
the way I read it, the item's intelligence is an amalgamation of multiple minds.
the rod must do what its wielder commands, but it can make telepathic, respectful complaints about how unhappy it is to be a group of living minds imprisoned in an inanimate object.
