Magic Item - The Pipe of Saint Nicolas

The Pipe of Saint Nicolas 
This simple ivory pipe is done in an ancient style & over the years Saint Nicolas has had quite a few. They show up from time to time in treasure hoards or at intergalactic trading posts or pawn shops. These hand carved pipes are self lighting but the real magic comes from the random effects that these pipes have!

The pipe must be packed with a smokable substance & it instantly alights within a round!
Then the random magical effect will take place
