PrideUnited! A platinum war hammer!
« on: July 06, 2011, 08:05:26 am »

Is platinum good for hammers? because I got a platinum axe awhile back and it was terrible.

THE BEST. And I mean it. Weight counts for hammers, platinum is the heaviest. For edged weapons platinum isn't good, but for hammers and maces it's THE weapon material. Lucky boy.

Welp. Time to throw it into the hand of my forts leader/general, watch as he, his adamantine armor, and his artifact platinum war hammer destroys everything. Oh, and he has been trained extensivly as a hammerdorf as he used to be a crossbowman.

Heaviest material next to slade, yes.  Makes fantastic hammers.  See if you can't get a platinum shield as well (look for any migrants who like shields, and then let them become armorsmiths).  Shield bashing is a blunt attack, so heavier is better.

I got an artifact silver mace one time.  That thing ripped through enemies.  Two hits, broken arm and broken ribs, on the ground unconscious, next shot bashes the skull.  Glorious.

And platinum is around 2 times as heavy as silver IIRC.

But don't be overconfident, every weapon is only as good as the soldier using it and the soldier using it is only as good as his armor and shield. Give him full masterwork, train him and then watch the carnage!

A fine artifact my friend.  Congrats on such a wonderful weapon.  Now smite your foes in true dwarven fashion.

You need to make said elf leather into the most amazing work of art.  Embed it with every kind of gem you have, stud it with metals, and sew images into it.  Erect a shrine outside your fort with that in the center.  Let the elves know that you view their very skin as naught more but a medium for your dwarves to work on.

This is a platinum warhammer. All craftsdwarfship is of the highest quality. it menaces with spikes of platinum.
there is an image of the goblin Utes Gozrusrozsnus and dwarves in elf bone. The goblin is making a plaintive gesture. the dwarves are striking a menacing pose.
this image relates to the slaying of Utes Gozrusrozsnus by the dwarves of Imushusen in 51. There is an image of a fungiwood in goblin bone.
 There is an image of an elf and a dwarf in elf bone. the dwarf is striking down the elf. It is menaces with spikes of faint yellow diamond.

A spike of diamond, for when platinum isn't hard enough. Brilliant!

Actually, the most dwarfy weapon ever would be a magma battle axe with menacing spikes of magma. On it an image of flowing magma in magma. The magma is flowing on Urist McMiner in 38. There is an image of elf in magma, in magma. The elf is excepting his lot in life.
