THE Hammer of Lucerne
This odd pole-arm appears to be a cross between a halberd and a warhammer, fitted with a four-pronged hammerhead and a long thrusting spike. Its creation was the result of a blunder made during the commission of an enchanted items for Lodur the Brave (alternately known, as Lodur Iron-Bollocks, Lodur the Foolhardy, and Lodur the Dullard), a powerful but none-to-bright cleric. Lodur had heard of rumors of a mighty long-hafted hammer, possibly wielded by a hero known as Lucerne, or perhaps that’s where it was made, which may or may not have had to do with a land or king or diety called “Swizaria” or “Switzlund” or “something of that nature, I am most certain.”
He responded with “Oh” and after a moment’s awkward silence then added, “and pray thee bless it as well…thou doest known that where it explodes undead and what-not, so that I might smite things most explosively”. Lodur’s fierce demeanor, violent reputations, and sacks of gold begged quiet compliance and so the dwarven arms-masters simply nodded and sent the cleric on his way, promising the weapon in two month’s time. The Arm-master consulted with his clan’s lore-master and sure enough, there was word of such a weapon: it came from a trader in Sigil by way of an exceptionally well-traveled plane-walker. The arm-master dutifully copied the weapon’s function and form, working runes of power into its haft and head just as Lodur had ask for. When Lodur the Brave returned to the dwarven stronghold to pick up his new hammer, he found instead a spiked pole-arm whose use was forbidden by his religion. The cleric ranted and gnashed his teeth and swore up and down the halls of the clan before stomping off in disgust, leaving his payment and the somewhat inappropriately named “Lucerne Hammer” behind.
Stats- This +1 Lucerne Hammer deals 1D6 to all non Neutral Enemies, and all undead who are struck must make a Fortitude save (DC 16) or instantly be destroyed. If upgraded to the Holy Swizarnian Hammer of Lucerne, it becomes a +3 Lucerne Hammer that has a 25% of casting Holy Smite on the target.
