Magic Item: Gryphbane

Gryphbane: A hammer +1, +2 against spell users, Gryphbane is an ancient weapon belonging to Therex of the Nightwolf House, famous in song and legend as wielded by that chieftain in his battles against the arcane Neu and their artificial servants. Many of the inhuman spell-wielders had the life crushed from them by the hammer's pitiless blows.

A well-balanced weapon, Gryphbane has a spiralling haft of magically-hardened bronze and a grip of blackened iron wrapped in wolfskin. Its head is composed of two stylized predator's heads of bronze, picked out with gold and silver wirework and the eyes inlaid with amber; out of the gaping, fanged mouths of the beasts protrude the two massive heads of the hammer, cast from iron as strong and polished as fine steel.

Just too awesome. I've got PCs visiting a lost Dwarven city soon...I might have to "borrow" this and give it a little tweak, cuz it's just too cool.
