Ashmaker is a +3 trident that changes shape to suit the wielder. For a medium size creature, it is a 9' long weapon. Ashmaker is forged of arjale with tins made entirely of three large fire opals. The fire opals are cut to razor thin edges and points.
Ashmaker was made by a fire giant smith named Gauldmyth. Blessed by the god Surtur, it is imbued with fire magic. Made as a gift for King Otrafning of Hofthorm, it never reached its destination.
A creature killed by the weapon begins to burn magically and will be consumed in 9 rounds. It is safe to touch a burning corpse for the first three rounds. Thereafter, the flames begin to get hot - causing 9hp (18hp on round 5) each round and doubling. On the nine round the flames burn for 288hps. This heat is such that metal will turn to slag and most items and the bones will be destroyed. In the end, all that is left is ash.
The magical words to activate the weapon must be researched or perhaps learned from the previous wielder.
