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 AEsir era, one that houses a strange deific artifact that probably also is the most worthless artifact upon the joerdh. However, that already is a bit more than the Slovanians know about it. When Aleksandra's followers first explored the ruins of AEsir Nýrheim, they found a pile of rubble from a caved-in roof and mostly collapsed, fully rotted wooden walls where the old AEsir 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 AEsir.

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 Mjoelnir (The Smasher) that the Audhar dwarven brothers Sindri and Brokkr forged for the warrior deity Thór. There even were dwarven runes inscribed in the head of the hammer.
