dwarvish war mattock

This war mattock has been made of the finest aluminum, the magical metal revered by the dwarves above all others, due to its lightness and resistance to corrosion.

The mattock has been the traditional weapon of the dwarves, ever since one of their early ancestors discovered that an implement designed to knock lumps of metal out of a cave wall was also quite handy for knocking lumps of brain out of an enemy's head.

Obtained From

Dwarven Machine Room

Notes

  • This item is obtained in the Dwarven Machine Room in exchange for one dwarvish punchcard, by using the correct number of chunks of chrome ore, asbestos ore, linoleum ore, and lumps of coal in the machine hoppers, correctly setting the other machine elements, and activating the machine.
  • After each round of combat, the message "Your mattock glows (really) bright blue" is displayed. The word "really" appears once in the message for every 7 HP your opponent has remaining, rounded up, so, for example, if your opponent has 100 HP, the word "really" will appear 15 times.
    • The mattock can be equipped in the off-hand, and will have the same effect.
  • If the monster has more than 693 HP, the message "Your mattock glows so brightly that it makes your eyes hurt." is displayed instead.
  • Only one item from the Dwarvish War Uniform can be obtained per ascension, as the dwarvish punchcard is a non-tradable one-time drop item.

References

  • The Magical Blue Glow falls back on some Elvish swords from J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, most recognizably Sting, Bilbo and Frodo's sword. Their blades would glow blue whenever Orcs were nearby.
  • Similarly, the reference to aluminum being the "magical metal revered" by dwarves is an allusion to mithril, which Tolkien described in similar terms. Some think that Tolkien intended mithril to be what we today call aluminum.
