A New Generation Rises...
Cold Iron Battle Ax
The sturdy oak haft of this battle ax has been wrapped in crimson cloth in two places, where an appropriately sized wielder would grip it. Its head is a crescent moon of cold iron, detailed with wavy imagery similar to the surface of the churning sea but dotted with staring eyes.
This weapon overcomes Damage Reduction as a cold iron weapon.
Because it is made of pure cold iron, this weapon has two significant drawbacks:
- The weapon strikes with a -1 penalty to attack dice.
- There is risk of damaging the weapon if it is used against an opponent wearing metal armor (ringmail or better), or a creature with natural armor or hide that is equally tough.
This cold iron battle ax was taken from the hand of a bugbear jailer who stood over the slave pens beneath Darkshelf Quarry.
