This axe was make by Rohrkhad, the creator of the dwarves, the axe appears in times of great crisis - often in the hands of a champion destined to save the dwarf people. This magic axe is a thundering weapon. History: When the earth was young and the gods of Power and Elements roamed over the mountains, rivers, and valleys, Rhorkhad, in His vision, saw that a hardy race of mortals would thrive in such a place. From his palace on Ilakasek, he took up a multitude of stones, both precious and rugged, and formed of them the first dwarf. To this dwarf, he gave the blessed weapon Khamalkhad - Bane of Dwarven Enemies. The blade is forged of the substance known as Bloodstone, unbreakable and unmarrable, and the shaft is made of mithral. Khamalkhad is taciturn. It can communicate with its wielder, and does so in gruff commands only its bearer can hear. It urges its bearer to battle any giants encountered, becoming sullen when refused this honor. Goals of Khamalkhad Help the dwarves in keeping with their ancient traditions Give goblins and (especially) giants the deaths they so richly deserve. Become an inspiration to honorable people everywhere. Properties of Khamalkhad You gain a +1 to attack rolls and damage rolls.
