Weapon (Warhammer or Maul), artifact (Requires attunment by a Lawful Good Character)

The two-handed hammer’s shaft is polished mahogany, while the head is adamantite. A silver hand emblem rests in a bed of gold design on either side. This mighty weapon was forged when Archbishop Faol created the Knights of the Silver Hand, and the archbishop bequeathed it to the order’s first Grand Master — Uther the Lightbringer. A group of paladins recovered the hammer after Uther’s death, but none has thought himself worthy of carrying the legendary weapon. Now the location of this weapon is unknown, but some believe that it still lies within the tomb of Uther himself.
