Ash-Salts

Overview:
The spice commonly known as Ash-Salt is a cheap and easy-to-get alternative to the normally used iodised salt, also known as table salt. The Ash-Salt got itīs name from the usual light- to dark-grey colour that it holds. The low price of Ash-Salts in comparison to the mentioned table salt is the fact that they are far more flavorless. One handful of the common table salt matches a good half a pygge of Ash-Salts.

Territory:
Ash-Salts can usually be found in all volcanic areas, such as the Celeste Mountains in the north and the Heath of Jernais in the south. The farther south you get, the lighter in colour the salts are that you find.

How to get Ash Salts:
Ash-Salt crystals can be found in chunks of a weigth of up to 2 pygges, and as said, mainly in volcanic areas. Those chunks are often revealed after earthquakes of all degrees, which are not rare in such areas. They will often be wihtin newly opened gaps in the volcanic ground and can easily be chopped off with a small hammer or hatchet. But they can also by mined for aswell. After grinding small chunks of Ash-Salts, just like other kinds of salts, they can be used to spice up meals.

Types:
There are no clearly defined types of ash-salts, as they are only judged by their colour. The darker the salt, the stronger the taste. From time to time the wanderer might come across very light Ash-Salts, almost white in colour. Although these have practically no taste, certain substaces of content are what makes these salts intersting. They are most commonly used for healing sicknesses of the body like dyarrhea and heavy headaches.

Usages:
You can often find wanderers that carry small bags and pouches with them, filled up with dark Ash-Salts. Within these filled pouches one may find small pieces of meat, conserved by the cheap spice, which makes a good trail ration. The light salts, however, are used for reasons of healing, as said before.

7  Santharian World Development / Miscellaneous / Blunt weapons on: 28 December 2003, 14:04:00
The probably oldest weapon of the man is his own body. Early in history, it were strong strikes with oneīs fist to overwhelm the opponent. A little later, it were simple things to extend the reach and damage of an attack, such as stones of all sizes and thick branches of trees, known as clubs. These were and still are natural enhancements of the fist and the arm. Even today, one that is not versed in using a weapon like a sword at all can grab a heavy object and strike it down on an opponent, only relying on his strength and the force of the impact.

Description
As stated before, the damage blunt weapons relies only on the brute force of their wielder. A troll would laugh at you, would you try to stab a sword into his head. But hit him with a big club or a mace, and heīll be sure to have a descent headache in the morning.

Weapon types. In general, there are 3 groups of blunt weapons:

- Clubs
- Maces
- Hammers

The following text will provide information on the Clubs and the Hammers.

The Club
"Club" can be used as the universal term for simple blunt weapons, mostly made of wood. Clubs can come in all sizes, and in general one can say: The bigger the club, the harder the bash. Meaning that the damage caused by the club exhalts with the size of the club. Clubs can be small enough to be hidden under a cloak or they can be so big that only ogres can wield them effectively. A club can be the thick branch of a tree, the leg of a chair, of a table, or in very barbaric cases, the leg of a man or animal.
Sometimes you might come across a popular variant of the club, the Spiked Club. Metal spikes and thornes, long nails for example, are driven through the middle of the clubīs head to stick out on the other side to enhance the damage caused. Spiked clubs are probably the antecessors of the everywhere known and feared Spiked Mace.

The Hammer
Hammers can be found all throughout the world of Caelereth. They all consist of a shaft, usually made of wood, and a head, usually made of metal, comparably to an axe. Be it the simple hammer of a carpenter or a blacksmith, or the priced and rune-encarved hammer of a dwarven forge-master. A sledge hammer can crush big rocks into small rubble - just imagine what it can do with your opponentīs head!
Of course there are several different variants of hammers. While the shaft of a common hammer is about 1 fore in length, the shaft of a Sledge Hammer is usually thrice as long and can thus be wielded with both hands for more damage.
Then there is the Riderīs Hammer, which is mostly used from horseback. A common hammerīs head is blunt on each side, but a riderīs hammers has only one blunt side. Attached to the other side, however, is a thick metal spike. The shaft is reinforced by metal stripes, and the handle is usually wrapped up with fur for better grip.
A very well known and even more feared hammer is the bulky Warhammer.  This is probably the largest variant of a hammer. Either the wielder has to use both hands to deal effective blows, or he has to be an ogre. Well aimed strikes with a warhammer can bash-in the skull of a troll or crush the thorax of a full-grown cartashian bear.

Usage
Blunt weapons are mostly used to do the īard work. Ever tried to tear down a wall with a sword? Right. It just wonīt work. These kind of weapons are usually used in cases where the sharpness of a sword or axe is useless, just look at the far above example with the troll.

Fightingstyle
To cause serious damage with blunt weapons, they have to be swung at the target with as much drive and force as possibly. Lashing out with a sword at a fully-armored horseman wonīt do diddely, but the brute force of, letīs say a sledgehammerīs impact, can knock the horseman off his mount.

History
Eversince people had conflicts with each other, the used all sorts of weapons to see who was right and who was wrong. Be it with stones, rocks, wooden clubs or limbs of dead enemies. Today, clubs and maces and hammers are the preferred weapon of uncivilized and barbaric races and tribes, such as ogres, trolls, and sometimes the humans known as Ashmari.

"Your mind is as blunt as your club, troll...hey! Put me down!" - last words of Gotrek Gemhold, dwarven miner.

i finally forced myself to create an account for the dev board...:biggrin    

The probably oldest weapon of the man is his own body. Early in history, it were strong strikes with oneīs fist to overwhelm the opponent. A little later, it were simple things to extend the reach and damage of an attack, such as stones of all sizes and thick branches of trees, known as clubs. These were and still are natural enhancements of the fist and the arm. Even today, one that is not versed in using a weapon like a sword at all can grab a heavy object and strike it down on an opponent, only relying on his strength and the force of the impact.

The club
"Club" can be used as the universal term for simple blunt weapons, mostly made of wood. Clubs can come in all sizes, and in general one can say: The bigger the club, the harder the bash. Meaning that the damage caused by the club exhalts with the size of the club. Clubs can be small enough to be hidden under a cloak or they can be so big that only ogres can wield them effectively. A club can be the leg of a chair, of a table, or in very barbaric cases, the leg of a man or animal.

The spiked club
This is a variant of the common club with a random number of spikes and thorns attached to it to enhance the damage inflicted on the target.

The mace
The mace, it seems, is a fusion of a hammer and a club. On top of the usually metal-made shaft resides a massive iron or steel ball, commonly at the size of a childīs head. It is relatively heavy, but the high damage of the impact remedys that fact.

The spiked mace
This is a variant of the normal mace. The ball on one end of the shaft is not round, but holds the geometrical form of a Dodekaedre (12-sided Dice). The shaft is attached to one of these sides, attached to every other side is a metal spike. This increases the already high damage even more.

The War-mace
This is yet another variant of the mace. The shaft of a War-mace is longer and made of solid steel, so only very strong warriors may wield this menacing weapon effectively. Instead of the metal ball of the common mace, the War-mace has a various number ob axe-like blades attached to itīs shaft.

The Pick-mace
A pick-mace, or Crowface as the kuglimz call it, is simply a mace with a spike/blade in the form of a crowīs beak, attached to one side of the maceīs ball. The spike is triple-edged, each edge forming a blade. The tip of the spike is normally very hard and thus very good for penetrating all kinds of armor.

The flail
Unlike a common mace, the ball of a flail is connected to itīs shaft by a metal chain. This makes it possible to have several balls on one shaft. Of course the ball(s) of a flail is(are) smaller than those of a mace. They can be spiked aswell, forming The spiked flail.

The hammer
Hammers can be found all throughout the world of Caelereth. They all consist of a shaft and a head, comparably to an axe. Be it the simple hammer of a carpenter or a blacksmith, or the priced and rune-encarved hammer of a dwarven forge-master. But there are more kinds of hammers by far.

The Riderīs hammer
A Riderīs hammer is a variant of the hammer commonly used by cavalry men. While blunt and even on one side, the other side holds a pointy, slightly curved spike. This weapon is similiar to the Crowface.

The Warhammer
This is probably the largest variant of a hammer. Either the wielder has to use both hands to deal effective blows, or he has to be an ogre. Well aimed strike with a warhammer can bash in the skull of a troll or crush the thorax of a full-grown cartashian bear.

In general, there are two groups of the Weapons of Force:

Blunt weapons (such as common clubs, hammers, chair legs...) and spiked weapons (such as maces, flails, warhammers...). I will begin with a summary of Blunt weapons...
