Vampiric Ring[edit]

Vampiric Ring

The Vampiric Ring is one of the more deadly and rare artifacts in Tamriel. It is said to have the power to steal its victim's health and grant it to the wearer. Its exact nature and origin is wholly unknown, but it's thought to have been created long ago in Morrowind by a cult of vampire followers. It is extremely rare, and is only seen every few hundred cycles of the moons. The Nerevarine reportedly recovered the ring from Ald Redaynia and sold it to the Mournhold Museum of Artifacts in 3E 427.

Veloth's Judgement[edit]

Veloth's Judgement

Veloth's Judgement (also called the Judgment of Saint Veloth) is the magical Daedric warhammer Saint Veloth wielded during his exodus from Summerset. This symbol of power stood for everything Veloth embodied. Veloth's Judgment was said to have rang with authority throughout the land. Its enchantments could cleanse corruption from the souls of those it struck down.

Veloth's precision with the hammer was such that he could remove the corruption from a soul and leaving the remainder alive and healthy. The warhammer stored the corruption for a time, turning it into energy that could be used by the wielder to enhance the power of the weapon. Veloth saw fit to set aside this weapon when he vowed to turn his attention from war to the task of building a new home for the Chimer in Resdayn.

After Veloth's ascension to sainthood, it was rumored to have gained legendary powers, to the point where it can siphon a living creature's entire soul. This rumor turned out to be true when the hammer was stolen from Mournhold Temple in the Second Era by Magistrix Vox. After the town of Selfora refused to ally with her, she used the hammer to create a dimensional tear, releasing hostile spirits into the settlement.. Vox was eventually defeated and the hammer was returned to Mournhold Temple.

During the Three Banners War, Veloth's Judgement was brought to Skuldafn after the defeat of Fildgor Orcthane. There the Dunmer representative General Yeveth Noramil presented Veloth's Judgement before the Pact leaders at the Great Moot, and the Ebonheart Pact was sealed.

In the late Third Era it was in possession of a priest in Molag Mar. It was given to the Nerevarine after he killed the leader of the Berne Clan, Raxle Berne, and would later be sold to the Museum of Artifacts in Mournhold.

Volendrung[edit]

Volendrung

Volendrung, also known as the Hammer of Might, is an ancient artifact created by the Dwarven Rourken clan. In appearance, it is a large ebony warhammer, although it may sometimes take the shape of a blade. For unknown reasons, Volendrung became a Daedric artifact of Malacath. It earns its name with its capability to demolish the walls of enemy keeps with ease. It is enchanted with the power to paralyze foes and drain them of their strength, conferring it to the wielder. The hammer is prone to disappearing like its Dwarven creators, sometimes resurfacing in days, sometimes in eons.

The hammer originally belonged to the chieftain of the Rourken clan. When his clan refused to join the other Dwemer in the First Council, the chieftain threw his hammer across Tamriel, promising to settle where ever it landed. The hammer landed in western Tamriel, and the Rourken called the land Volenfell, literally "City of the Hammer". This area later came to be called Hammerfell. The Rourken's journey across Tamriel is depicted in many of the ruins of the region, Volendrung appearing as a shining star showing the way.
