Vek'Huros

This ancient and ornate Warhammer is said to have been used by the Nobilis Ivarager to forge the world itself, the mountain Vesuvious, even the first Dwarves. Its head is emblazoned with two runes, one on each side, marking it as a tool of creation and of rulership. The Hammer was kept by the Dwarves all through their golden age, before the fall of their ancient civilization, and was said to have been the key for many Dwarven innovations blending the forge and magic to fabricate all sorts of wonderous creations which have not been seen since the Hammer was lost. It’s current incarnation appears to have been dulled by ages of ill use, but gives indications that its might be reawakened, to the mighty tool it once was.

Vek: Aspect of Ruling.

Property: As a minor action, the Hammer gains the Heavy Thrown property until the end of the wielder’s turn. Its range is 5/10.
Property: Using Vek’Huros, you gain the Enchant Magic Item ritual, usable 1/week.

Dally + Psionic, Implement
Standard Action Close burst 5
Target: One creature in burst
