This is what Aidoios will say when you ask about "Staff of the Gods"
A nameless god,
A weapon left,
In to a king's hand with utmost trust.
A single betrayer,
A warrior armed,
To kill the god with said weapon's thrust.
A sunless place,
Is jagger shield,
Who would eat the taker, even a waif.
A dry shore,
A frozen guard,
Who keeps the cleansing citrus safe.
A plum awaits,
Three prongs of gold,
The one who finds the cure becomes the wise.
A drop of ichor,
A frenzy makes,
So strip the crimson and claim the prize.

When you grab the Staff from the rock you instantly get a magical bleed effect. As soon as this happens about 20-30 sharks attack you. You need to get out of the water and to the island with the Lemon tree in the middle (loc=40/50 in Hesperos). Pick a lemon and use it as an item to clean the coral from the staff revealing the Staff of the Gods artifact.
If you die, log or drop the staff before you have used the lemon and revealed the staff it will go back to the starting point in the water.
Staff of God 1 of 3 -- drops on treasure island in Hesperos. (Island at 20, 55) Just randomly open any chest and kill the mobs inside.

Dialog from combining the 3 scrolls:
"The early years of the reign of Jarlos of the Seventh Kingdom were auspicious, but the gods grew to be an annoyance. How dare they demand of Atlantis any servility or worship? For what of Atlantis has been blessed [by the gods and not by the hands of the people of this great race?] Do they make the rivers flow where we wish them, or is it not the craftsman and the engineers of our kingdoms that do this? Do they answer the pleas of mothers crying over the sick beds of their young, or do our doctors answer them? And so how else is King Jarlos to answer the mocking sea god Mephis but with a challenge?
Mephis would say that Atlantis owes the gods fealty. Our King says the gods are, admittedly, a match to our race, but no longer are these gods needed in Atlantis, for Atlantis can do more without their aid and are indeed, of a match for the gods. And Mephis took offense, and was outraged. So how else to answer the offense and outrage but with a challenge, to [prove] a god is but a mortal [compared] to Atlantis? And so Mephis took the challenge, and attempted the trials of Atlantis. Mephis is well served through the magic of the gods, though, and our King Jarlos took offense, and taunted the sea god. ['How are we to believe in a god,' our King cried, 'when the one god that dares speak with us would use magic to win the trials that even the Atlantean champion surpasses with skill?'] And Mephis agreed to leave [his] trident behind."
"Mephis entered the trials with little fear of failure. He was a god of the sea, and no mortals could touch him. The beasts of the trial were little things, of no real threat. Mephis despised the Atlanteans. They made a land above his sea and neglected him. They weathered his storms and [rebelled against his] demands. As he went into the seas in the Planes of Atlantis, he thought of what he would do to King Jarlos and the Atlanteans when he completed the trials."
"Deatrys waited for Mephis in the first areas. He knew the god would spend as much time as he could in the water, and [so he] swam to a cave waiting for the god to pass. Deatrys held little regard for the sea god Mephis, and thought his death to be a trivial matter. Perhaps it was the way Mephis died that caused the strange occurrences after. [Deatrys], aware that Mephis was ignorant of his presence, hurled [Mephis' own] trident through the water as [he] passed, striking [him] through his back and piercing upward, through his throat. Mephis didn't even have the time to roar a death cry or turn and see his assassin. His body fell and Deatrys, sure [the god] was dead, [went] to retrieve the trident. He cut the head off of Mephis' body and swam to an island nearby. There, using Mephis' hair, he cleansed the blood off the trident. He then buried Mephis' head and the trident close by, and left the Planes.
Twelve days after the murder of Mephis, the sea god that offended Atlantis, Deatrys had a dream. He was standing on the island where he buried Mephis. As he watched, a strange bush began to grow. Soon, Deatrys recognized it as a lemon bush. In his hands he held the trident. The blood of Mephis wouldn't stop flowing from the trident. Desperate to stop the blood, Deatrys picked a lemon, and rubbed the juice over the trident. Finally, the blood stopped flowing, and Deatrys woke, sweating and smelling of lemon. Later, Deatrys received word that a lemon bush had grown on the island. Deatrys [laughed. Was] that all a murdered god could do?"
