Daraz Hammer Edit

Runes identify this fine weapon as having been forged by the dwarven Daraz clan some 500 years ago. Hammers of this type were created for the defense of their homes against encroaching goblins and orcs, and each was wound with mighty spells. Unfortunately, fine weapons and dwarven courage were no match for the sheer number of orc invaders. The clan was extinguished, and their weapons were scattered throughout the known world.

Forge Fire Edit

A legacy that Thalantyr the Conjurer has said he would prefer to forget, these weapons are tied to his early adventuring career and a time when he was held captive by a mysterious, powerful creature. He has refused to say how the weapons have retained the heat of the forge they were crafted in, usually ending such inquiries with a frustrated "pray you never find out."

Hammer of Blasting Edit

Though his clan tried to dissuade him, the young dwarf Felirik refused to accept that he wouldn't make an exceptional rogue—despite the fact that he couldn't pick a lock to save his life. To combat his inadequacies, Felirik commissioned several hammers of blasting. What they lacked in subtlety, they more than made up for in effectiveness, annihilating the locks of chests and doors alike.

Hammer of the Beast Edit

Legends abound of the Beast Lords and their insatiable bloodlust, each claiming that the creatures regularly rampage across the face of Faerûn. These hammers were supposedly created in battle against such beasts, but specifics are unknown. Usually tales like these can be blamed on an imaginative bard with a gullible audience, but the story has stuck in lieu of facts.

Izu's Hammer of Fabrication Edit

The blind smith Izu passed away during a particularly brutal winter in the Silver Marches and it was only after his death that his family discovered his connections with the Harpers. For years Izu toiled on his forge producing weapons and magical equipment for the Harpers. This hammer was given by Izu's heirs to a young Harper scout whom Izu had been fond of. Sadly, the scout disappeared while mapping the upper reaches of the Underdark.

In the city-states of Chessenta, a mythic war hero called Cevalias figures prominently in the rise of the city Cimbar, as the nation’s capital. Legends claim that Cevalias with his sparking war hammer became the champion of the city when he fell in love with the ruler’s daughter, a young woman called Saphia.
