Full Item Description
The antique looking hammer is made of a dark grayed steel with a dusty oaken handle. At the end of the handle is a small brown stone, a single sigil glowing vibrantly with power upon it.
In ages long past a certain noble discovered stones of great power, these Elemental Sigils as they were called commanded powerful natural magic. Now this noble had to find vessels with which to harness this power so they could be put to use, he was also an accomplished blacksmith and had a friendly relationship with the nearby dwarven clan. To this clan he went for advice on the usage of his earth sigil, this hammer was their answer. Passed down from their ancient kings it was once a majestic weapon and they wished to see it shine in battle once more. The antique steel was polished and its handle was modified to hold the stone. The steel seemed to readily accept the magical power and its wielder was in full control of its powers. And thus the Mountain Cleaver was born!
This mighty warhammer harnesses the strength of the earth to deliver bone-shattering blows to its opponents. The wielder of the hammer can cause short but violent tremors in the ground, although not large enough to cause much harm other than loss of balance. In addition they gain the ability to temporarily take on an earthen form, incredibly tough and capable of burrowing through the ground without leaving a usable tunnel, although it causes a lot of vibration and is easily noticable.(think of a subway or train running underneath the ground beneath you) The weapons bearer can also call upon the hammers power to save one whom has been petrified but doing so drains the hammer of charge for up to a fortnight. The hammers recharging process can be sped up if it is buried in fertile soil near a suitably large mountain, just don’t forget it!
