A short story...
The mighty mace
On a small island far to the east of Battleon, named Paxia, lies a clan of mighty warriors called Geoto.
They call themselves the clan of earth, due to their close ties with nature, especially the soil and rocks, elements that even form their clan base.
The clan leader is the creature named Geotal, a creature of great power, wit and wisdom. It constantly watches over Geoto and it`s clansmen, making sure that everything is in order and the clan becomes stronger and better with each day.
But life is not always peacefull in Paxia. Like everywhere else in the world of Lore, danger is always present and sometimes battles must be fought.
Once, a great number of monsters was unleashed by an unknown evil on the lands of Geoto, and it was time for the clan of earth to go to war. Even if the clansmen aren`t fond of battle and don`t like violence, every fighter, ranger and wizard mobilized.
The battles lasted some time, but in the end the creatures were either dead or banished. The wizards and rangers had played a big part in the gain of victory, while ironically, the fighters of the clan had had a hard time penetrating the tough hides of the monsters.
Hearing that their current weapons weren`t very good at slashing and piercind through some creatures, Geotal decited that is was time Geoto had a weapon specifically made for it`s fighters, a weapon so powerfull that it would need everyone`s involvement in order to complete it.
Thus the operation started. The smiths of the clan began gathering and smelting iron ore for the hilt and the top part of the weapon;
The masons, after searching for the toughest of rocks, started making the main part: the blunt piece of hardened rock that would be used to pummel and even pierce the strongest of armor, shield or hide.
The masons also thought of a clever way to hold all the pieces together, by crafting granite rods which went through the hilt and main piece, connecting with the iron top, making the weapon more sturdy.
Even the rangers helped, by using hardened leather straps as safeguards that tightly held everything in place.
Last but not least, the wizards cast magic onto the weapon, making it so that while in battle, the weapon could attack all by itself, keeping the wielder out of harm`s way.
After many weeks of planning and hard work, the Geoto weapon was completed: a formidable mace that showed the pride, skill and might of the clan.
Since then the mace helped many fighters defeat even the toughest opponents.
