The famed Mountain Cleaver is a mighty hammer and is never taken "lightly".

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.

History
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!

Magic/Cursed Properties
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!

Its okay, but needs a bit more spark I think.

A less cumbersome method of linking is as follows. Replace the round brackets with square ones to have it take effect.

So replaceing the brackets of the following

yields:

Wet Faeries

       By: Murometz

Sages and naturalists frown at the common name given to these strange creatures by the small folk, but sometimes the silliest nicknames for creatures, places and people persevere in the minds of many. “Purifiers”, “Pond Jellies”, “Breath-Stealers”, “Lung-Ticklers” and “River Butterflies” are much less commonly heard appellations for these life forms. Wet Faeries are basically (and simply) a species of fist-sized, fresh-water jellyfish. Several traits steer them toward the peculiar category however. Firstly, Wet Faeries are nearly invisible in the water, much like their marine cousins but even more so. One can swim in a river swarming with these critters and not even notice their presence. Secondly, they possess the unique ability to clean and purify whatever body of water they inhabit. They do this via some sort of biological filtration process, sucking in all toxins present in the water, and releasing it back in its purest form. Needless to say, they are both a blessing and a curse to whichever folk dwell beside the rivers and lakes Wet Faeries inhabit. On one hand, no purer water can be found anywhere than a Wet Faerie lake or pond, and yet, in “pure” water “life” tends in fact to die out, lacking the needed nutrients to prosper. Thirdly, their “sting” is (unfortunately) virulently poisonous to all mammalians. Wet Faeries are loathe to sting anyone or anything, using their barbed fronds as a last line of defense, but if stung, most swimmers will suffer respiratory arrest, and die within minutes, usually drowning before they can make it back to shore.

Alchemists, druids, and less savory characters have studied these creatures over the years, and have predictably found all the ways Wet Faeries could be exploited. Morbidly humorous, some bards find it, that the Poisoners and Assassins Guilds as well as the Healer’s Union, all prize these creatures. The assassins use the extracted venom in obvious fashion, while the priests and healers use the still-living jelly-fish to sterilize other poison potions and to cure those already poisoned on death’s door.

It is known that a certain Earl Von Trumble keeps his vast castle moat stocked with Wet Faeries, the waters so clear that every bone of every one of his past enemies can be clearly seen on the bottom, twenty two feet below.
