This month is Swordtember. But I drew 50 swords last year. So this year I’m going to try to draw 50 axes over the next 2 months or so. Maybe there’s a Dyson’s Book of Axes waiting at the end of this exercise…
Witchslayer is a battleaxe +1, +3 vs spellcasters. The wielder cannot cast spells while in possession of the weapon, but can expend a spell when striking with the blade (after the hit roll, when rolling damage) to increase the damage by 1 plus the level of the spell slot / prepared spell expended in the attack.
Oh god, I’m so into this!
That’s an intriguing power. The axe works best in the hands of a magic user, but magic users are also critically hindered by wielding it.
It prompts the hiring of a special ax squire, whose only job is to hold the ax until the MU wants to hit something.
