Iím designing a character for a new D&D 3.5E game. He will be a gnome, named Gwystyl. I had already decided that he would have an ancestral relic - a traditional gnome's weapon called a hooked hammer. The DM and I are creating its history together, so he can use it while developing adventures. [A hooked hammer is a weapon with a hammerhead on one end and a plothook on the other.]

That was already established when I heard of Alan Rickmanís untimely death. So the history of the weapon is that Gwystylís ancestor Grabthar used it to win a great battle, in an alliance with the dwarven king Warvan and his sons.

Someday, when itís appropriate, after Gwystyl learns the history of his weapon, he is going to swear, ďBy Grabtharís hammer, by the sons of Warvan, you shall be avenged!Ē

When this news is a bummer of the highest order. :smalleek:

Öof course that gives me the desire to make such a weapon a spoon. :smalltongue:

I never thought anything even remotely worthwhile would come out of that movie. Well played!
