Epic Stein

Epic stein

Presented in gratitude from the vault of Lord Padraig Kovosar of Threshold, this ornate stein has a handle in the form of a dwarven waraxe and is decorated with dwarven heroes in battle with orcs, giants, drow, minotaurs and undead.

Nonlegacy: +1 divine implement
Omen: The Epic Stein can carry 8 lbs. of liquid. Regardless of the amount of liquid put into it, it has the weight of one mug of ale (2 lbs.). Additionally, liquid in the Stein cannot be accidentally spilled.

Currently carried by Gryffin Farstryder.

DC 15: Judging from the style of tankard and form of Davek runes engraved on it, the Epic Stein is of ancient dwarven craftsmanship. The Epic Stein is believed to have been crafted by Travok Godsale, a legendary dwarf battlerager-cleric of Hanseath from two millennia ago known for battling with a dwarven waraxe in one hand while drinking ale from the Epic Stein with the other. Tales of Travok’s celebrations rival those of his heroic exploits and it seems likely the Epic Stein was created to aid in both, as well as to honor the dwarven god of war, freedom and carousing.

DC 18: A wanderer and adventurer, Travok was the supposed descendant of a mortal son of Hanseath and was of mightier mettle than most dwarves of his era. Many exploits are attributed to Travok: inventing godsale as a gift to Hanseath, leading a small group of battleragers to victory against an entire orcish horde, venturing through the center of the world to the other side, and holding a year-long celebration during which he christened the Epic Stein.
