Matalotok, also known as Frost Father or the Maul of Brutal Endings,[2] was a magical warhammer.[1]

Description[edit | edit source]

Matalotok was a large black warhammer. It was cold to the touch and was constantly surrounded by mist.[1]

Powers[edit | edit source]

The creature who wielded Matalotok became immune to the effects of cold. When the warhammer struck an opponent, a blast of cold was unleashed, affecting all those within a 30 ft (9.1 m) radius.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

Matalotok was ancient, and was crafted by Thrym. At some point, it fell into the hands of the Witch Queen Iggwilv, who in turn bestowed it upon a then-mortal Kostchtchie. The eventual Prince of Wrath wielded Matalotok to great effect, dominating his frost giant tribe and even slaying three minor demon lords with the weapon.[2] The warhammer would remain in Kostchtie's possession for many years,[1][3] up until the archduchess Zariel took it from him sometime prior to the Year of Twelve Warnings, 1494 DR.[note 1][4]

Notes[edit | edit source]
