Magical battle axe claimed as spoils of war by the dwarf Clive Battlegibber while helping the gnomes fend off a Choghan attack on one of their caravans in the year 4513.
The weapon has a large main blade on one side and what looks like a smaller ornamental second blade opposing it.
It has an ancient dwarven rune on the end of the haft. The dwarf Clive Battlegibber recognizes the rune as how a dwarven clan would mark an heirloom weapon. The rune stands for “Clavo” which simply translates roughly as “to cleave,” but also has subtler definitions such as “split” or “dual” or more generally “multiple aspects.” He’s not sure if there ever was such a clan named Clavo of if that is simply the name of the weapon.
Clive swings the axe back and forth, feeling the balance and heft. He notes the smooth motions and fluidity when changing the direction of the swing. Though the Choghan commander wielded it single handed, Clive finds to his delight that when he grips it with both hands the weapon transforms. The haft lengthens and the seemingly vestigial secondary blade grows to full size turning the weapon into a true double-bladed battle axe requiring two hands to wield.
Curious, Clive switches back to one hand and makes ready to throw the weapon. As he does so, the weapon shrinks to the size of a throwing axe and spins viciously as Clive gives it clumsy practice throw into the snow. He plays with it some more realizing he must think he wants to throw the axe for it to transform that way which is a good thing since it means the axe won’t transform when he’s trying to bring it down one-handed with an overhand swing.
