Bibanmozib: a mighty axe named... Ballswallowed?
« on: December 17, 2010, 05:19:58 pm »

...alright.  Weaponsmith gets hit with a fey mood.  He grabs adamantine and has a preference for battle axes, so I think yes! and brace myself for an awesome artifact weapon.  He grabs three rough light yellow diamonds (which turned into a generic encrusting, encircling bands, and an image of the ascension of a civ queen in the year 226), some cat leather, cat bones, cow bones, acacia, and gets to work.  Time passes...

Rigoth Dorenstakud, Weaponsmith, has created Bibanmozib, a adamantine battleaxe!

Biban...?  What a funny name.  Time to check this out!

...

uh.

"Ballswallowed"

...

As in, the swallowing of balls.

On the item is an image of Ilral Pagedold the dwarf and dwarves in light yellow diamond.  The artwork relates to the ascension of the dwarf Ilral Pagedold to the position of queen of the Brilliant Labors in 226.

Ballswallowed.

You know, it IS an artifact and all, but I really just don't know if I'm going to have one of my heroes carry this thing around...

Also, it depics the ascension of a queen. One is left to wonder if it hints at how she got that post.

So the ascension was preceded by a slight descent?

I'd give it to my worst axedwarf as incentive.

Now this opens up a big can of imaginative worms ... was the queen, by any chance, a KING before the ... swallowing?

Maybe the queen really IS a king, but prefers to be known as a queen.

First thing that came to mind.

If you hit a dwarf with moving water with sufficient strength it will knock the baby out of the mother's arms.  The water can then be used to sweep the baby into a well or cistern for drowning.  The device which does this can also double as a mist generator.

I couldn't stop laughing after reading that. Still kinda giggling right now... That was the highlight of my day. Thank you, shadowform, for posting that.
