| This magnificent piece of weaponry is made of one huge piece of metal and has been decorated with mystical carvings made of gold, platinum and mystical starmetal. The carvings are obviously ancient and undecipherable, but emanate an aura of power as the strange and horrific spells of chaos writhe under the weapon's surface just yearning to be unleashed.
The Paingiver's runes are glowing eerily: [____________________]
It contains a tale;
Long, long time ago, in a place far, far away a wise and immensely powerful archwizard managed to forge a lasting friendship with a young moondragon of chaotic alignment. The two companions went on to have many weird and wonderful adventures, now known only through the mists of legend. From one of their adventures they gained an axe of surpassing power ... whatever happened afterwards is not known, but the Paingiver axe, as it is known now, has endured to this day.
Sages of times past whisper, that the weapon was capable of occasionally mimicking the skills of its wielder. One legend also tells that at the height of their adventures, the pair was often seen performing a ritual of 'hoppling' around this weapon.
Yet another story mentions that the most powerful of the weapons can answer to a given 'name', bestowed by their owners.
