A wand of control wanter gives the wielder access to the spell control_water. Sarcem took Cauldron city money to Sasserine to purchase eight wands of control water. The wand were to be used in the Lowering_of_the_Waters. Sarcem was ambushed and slain by Triel_Elderast and her minions. Triel stole the wands and retreated to her lair below Cauldron. Without the wands the lower portions of Cauldron would flood during the seasonal rainstorms. Tarik's_Company tracked down Triel, slew her and her guards, and retrieved the wands for the city.
