Ghollish Wide-axe

By:

The Ghollish Wide-axe was a design of axe popular a few decades ago in the southern provinces of (insert kingdom), especially among peasants involved in the Sickle of Justice rebellion (though these favored sickles to axes).

Full Item Description
This axe {though identical in game stats to any other axe} resembles and especially wide double-headed axe with a stubby, curved handle wrapped in leather. The blade is sturdy, heavy-duty, and worked with a stylistic bear or other predator of some sort. The weapon is unusual in that it has some gold leaf inlayed on the haft; most makers of this type of axe were peasants of the Sickle of Justice and favored undecorated weapons which would set them apart from the ornately-bedecked nobility who they fought against.

History
The Ghollish Wide-axe was a design of axe popular a few decades ago in the southern provinces of (insert kingdom), especially among peasants involved in the Sickle of Justice rebellion (though these favored sickles to axes).

I love the name, and the detail of the weapon itself was great, incorporating a little history and style into it as well. A little short though, and while I'm glad it wasn't the "Ever-Devouring Axe of Doom and Hellfires That Kills Gods", I would have liked to have seen a little more elaboration on the history, with perhaps some variations on the central theme. Other than that, I'm glad we have some nice, realistic weapons in the citadel!

The old clock tower stands tall, but the bulk of the uppermost storey is crumbling and unsafe, with gaping cracks in the walls. The metal struts and girders supporting the great bronze bells are still intact, though, and the bells survive. The grotesque gargoyles and arabesques which decorated the original design have either fallen into the street (once or twice a year more bricks fall from the tower, prompting calls for its demolition) or have been defaced, but the main doors to the clock tower are still intact and show signs of being kept in working order. This is the home of The Captains, clad in raggedy clothes, with sooty faces, and perpetually runny noses. But behind each set of eyes is the look of a survivor. They live to stick together and make it through each day. Older than their years in many ways, the friendship they share with each other and Wims ghost keeps the core of a childs innocence and hope alive in each. But they are still very suspicious of outsiders. They are a group of street children who live in the clock tower. Some are orphans, some runaways, and some nomads who occasionally return to their homes. But they’re all poor, dirty and perpetually hungry, as well as being wily, unscrupulous and mischievous in a fairly brutal way. Enough of them have suffered at the hands of adults for all of them to be wary of any grown-ups, particularly ones who ask too many questions, although with hard work and a lot of food it might be possible to win the confidence or even the trust of a few of them.
