Paha

By:

Ankorillian warriors carries, on a regular basis, Na-ha (spears) and many different types of Pahas (daggers). However, these are not daggers as most people think of them.

Full Item Description
Among the many types of daggers are those made from Ankorillian hardwoods. These Paha daggers are sharpened at one or both ends and some had shark’s teeth imbedded in the pointed end to enhance their effectiveness. A broken spear, cut to the appropriate length, also serves well as a dagger. The average dagger is about 18 inches long but could extend up to about 3 feet in length.

There are daggers with one of its ends enlarged for use as a club. The Paha-Ku is made from the bill of the broad-billed swordfish and the Paha-Ka is made from the bill of the marlin. These are daggers provided by nature and serves those who uses them very well. The naturally rough edges of the marlin bill(imagine a saw) are sometimes left on and provided a particular cutting effect. Also, the bill was either left with its natural point or sometimes barbed.

History
Ankorillian warriors carries, on a regular basis, Na-ha (spears) and many different types of daggers. These weapons are be used to confront any kind of threat, as well as on the fields of battle.  The dagger playes a prominent role because it is easily carried and/or slipped into the waistband of the male warrior loincloth. Besides, daggers strikes much faster than big, heavy clubs.

The air had grown chill the minute they descended into the strange valley, which was unmarked on any of their maps. It was so strange here, devoid of animal life and completely silent. The horses were nervous the entire journey through the vale. As they set about to collect firewood for the campfire they could hear their own voices as dim echoes through the eerie silence.

The food didn't taste anything that evening and their sleep was cold and troubled by nightmares. While they are clearing camp the next morning, one of them stumbles over a piece of stone jutting out of the ground nearby the horses. On closer inspection there seems to be runes engraved into the polished surface. The symbols true meaning is no more known among mere mortals and if they decide to dig deeper, they will discover that it is an ancient altar buried within the soil.

Any historically oriented party member will recognize the largest symbol to be the insignia of the powerful warlock who ruled this realm several centuries ago. At their departure from the area, something will seem amiss with one of the party members and all will remember the stories of the warlock's thousand curses.
