Cleavers of Koth Skulltaker
A mighty Dwarven gladiator from long ago before the Clans were so few. His name was Koth Skulltaker. He was a mighty gladiator who never lost a single match. The tale tells of how he was born from a female gladiator and was raised in the pit. His success won him many fans and spiteful enemies. He refused to take a bribe and said that, “None would trade his soul, crafted by Ferdin, for simple trinkets made by a mortal”. His devotion won him the interest of a great craftsman, Benjack Forgekin. Forgekin crafted a pair of butcher cleavers that were the size of short swords. These were shapes with wicked serrated edged that never dulled. Their hilts were engraved with ancient dwarven runes, and the pommels were connected to large magical chains that could bind to the user. Koth Skulltaker was the undisputed champion until his death from pneumonia at the old age of 178. His blades were buried with him in the tomb of blood. The Skulltaker bloodline died with him, but no-one dares enter the tomb deep within Crythia. Many say his spirit lingers waiting for a worthy challenger.
