A heavy weapon, the plain lade contrasted by a small disc of deeply engraved gold bound into the grip. It is probably a family crest, but it doesn’t look dwarven, and Tug has never dwelled on his past. Deceptively graceful in Tug’s hands, this weapon now strikes with brutal impact.

Long ago, a soldier from Gwaren was returning home after twenty years at war. One his way, he met an old blind woodcutter sitting on a tree stump, and he gave the old man his last scrap of bread. The old man gave the soldier his axe in return. The soldier made his bed in a tree branch and held the woodcutter’s axe at his side to ward against beats and bandits. When the moon was high, he was awakened by the sound of weeping. ‘Help me’ spoke the three in which he’d been sleeping. ‘If you had any pity in you, you would cut me down so that my spirit could go to the Maker’. So the soldier took up his axe and struck the tree. The tree shattered when it hit the ground, and from the splinters rose a demon. The soldier was chilled to the bone, and could not sleep. In the morning, he found the axe burned like the blood of the sylvan. This simple axe is very hot to the touch, as if it’s been left near a fire. But holding it seems to make the air around you grow bitterly cold.
