Dramborleg is an artifact weapon that appears in EvilHack and Hack'EM. It is lawful and dwarf-favoring, and its base item is a dwarvish bearded axe made of mithril.


In addition to random generation, Dramborleg can appear as a sacrifice gift for lawful characters.


While wielded, Dramborleg provides magic resistance and one level of magic cancellation, and warns its wielder of demons - any balrogs hit by Dramborleg are instantly killed. Due to its affinity with dwarves and lawfully aligned players, Dramborleg will blast any non-dwarf or non-lawful that wields it, and any character that is not lawful or not a dwarf will not be able to handle it.

Encyclopedia entry

... but he carried an axe rather than a sword, and this in the
speech of the Gondolindrim he named Dramborleg, for its buffet
stunned and its edge clove all armour.
