| Forge's Clamor: This +1 thundering shortsword
has a blade made of steel mixed with traces of bronze. The crossguard is
a large bronze gear, the hilt a group of thick steel wires, and the base
of the hilt a basket of bronze wires. The weapon feels unusually heavy
and has a slightly odd balance for a short sword (weighted toward the front
of the blade).
When this weapon was created it was just a masterwork warhammer. Given to an industrious young cleric of Gond in 1301 DR, it passed through several hands over the next fifty years and was given an enhancement bonus and its thundering property. In 1358 DR it was owned by Garin the Left Handed, another cleric of Gond, and when he cast a greater magic weapon spell upon it within a wild magic zone, the spell suffered a wild surge and permanently changed the weapon into a short sword. Garin couldn't wield a short sword, so he gave it to his cohort Fringart the Less Bloody, and over time Garin replaced the components of the hilt with the pieces it presently bears and had it crafted with its unusual storage property. Garin and Fringart vanished in 1369 DR in a conflict with a group of Talosian clerics and the weapon has not been seen since.
In addition to the above properties, the hilt of the weapon acts as a bag of holding of the smallest variety. The extradimensional space is accessed through the strange spherical cluster of bronze wires at the base of the hilt, and unless it has been emptied by bearers after Garin, it probably contains several alchemical items, a full smokepowder horn, and a potion of cure moderate wounds.
