Hand Of The Mountain (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
Weapon (Maul), artifact (Requires attunement by a character with a Constitution of 17)
Long ago in a distant land, a mighty Dwarf forged a Hammer of unspeakable strength, His name was Brock Stonebeard, Champion of storms, Master of the Forge, and Jarl of Dwemerdoor, But a foolish Immortal Elven Warrior stepped forth to oppose him, they clashed for nine days and nights, but before the final blow was struck Brock ripped open a massive ravine in the ground to the bowels of dwemerdoor, where his word was Law, and threw the Elf in, but the Elf secured the Hand of The Mountain and hid it deep in Dwemerdoor, they tortured him and tried their best to get him to talk, but he would not and when a great horde of Orcs and Giants came to destroy the Citadel, the Dwarves were helpless, without their mighty leaders Hammer he could not do as he needed and to forge another would be so demanding it would kill him. Thus the mighty City fell, but they say somewhere deep in the Bowels of Dwemerdoor, behind seas of Orcs and the remaining Dwarven defenses, the mighty hammer lies, waiting for it's next wielder.
The Hand of The Mountain is an ancient Dwarvern Hammer made early in the races existence itself. It is a large stone maul with dwarvern runes engraved on its handle with a thin blue wrap acting as a grip. Though the hammer is old it is barely chipped and with littler cracks truly a testament to dwarf craftsmanship and the strength of stone.
