Jörðgarð Map of Week #151 - High Hammer Tavern
|Description:||With the 151st Map of the Week we take a look at the High Hammer Tavern in the Slovanian village of Grainmill.
The High Hammer is another relic from the Æsir era, one that houses a strange deific artifact that probably also is the most worthless artifact
upon the jörð. However, that already is a bit more than the Slovanians know about it. When Aleksandra's followers first explored the ruins of
Æsir Nýrheim, they found a pile of rubble from a caved-in roof and mostly collapsed, fully rotted wooden walls where the old Æsir tavern known
as the Giant's Skull stood. When they cleared rthe rubble, they found that the ground floor of granite brick and the storage cellar beneath it
were fully intact. The also found the artifact created by great deities of the Æsir.
A five-sided pedestal 9 feet/270 cm wide and hewn of stone stood in the middle of the now barren floor, emitting a rose-colored glow on all
sides but the top. Upon it stood a gigantic anvil 5 feet/150 cm long, and in the anvil someone or something had embedded a warhammer. It
appeared that the hammer simply had been driven into the anvil with a mighty blow. The hammer emitted a pale lilac-colored glow that covered
the top of the pedestal. What worried the Slovanians, however, was the fact that the hammer perfectly fit the description of the warhammer
Mjölnir (The Smasher) that the Auðar dwarven brothers Sindri and Brokkr forged for the warrior deity Thór (þórr). There even were dwarven runes
inscribed in the head of the hammer:
