Wyrmkiller is a +2 dragonbane chapak of distinction made from a single oak tree and adorned with carvings of dragons on its haft. Subsequent kender owners have tied feathers and other interesting things round the chapak, giving it a strange look.

No one knows who actually crafted Wyrmkiller or what the chapak's name was before given the name 'Wyrmkiller' by the kender Brasswell Lightfinger. Brass is a true kender that emerged into fame and notoriety during the early part of the Age of Mortals.

The story goes the Brass killed a great red dragon that was almost the same size as Malystryx, the Red Marauder, with but one stone from his magical chapak. As with many such stories from kender, this has been exaggerated with each re-telling of the story.

The red dragon was little more than a hatchling who had been injured during the Dragon Purge. Brass and his companions stumbled across the dragon and Brass, with the help of a lucky shot which hit the dragon's already wounded eye, he killed the dragon.

Wyrmkiller deals 1d6+2 points of slashing damage when used as an axe and has a critical multiplier of x3. When used as a sling, Wyrmkiller deals 1d4+2 points of damage with a critical multiplier of x2. The sling feature of the chapak has a range increment of 50-feet.
