And the gods beheld that the thunderwarriors fought hard and brave in the
"battle of metal". However, they wanted to challenge
them once again. This test
was called the "battle of steel". In order to aid them in their holy quest it
was decided to bestow unto
them four magic utensils.
So the gods called upon the old dwarf and the mighty wizard and told them what
they sought. The dwarf
took the sword "Nothung", once belonging to "Siegfried
the dragon-slayer", fused and smithed from it's steel four shakels of
The wizard created the same number of amulets from the skin of a black demon.
He then took the silver shaded blood of a dead
unicorn from which he drew four
magic runes, each drenched with natural power.
The power and strength of a bear would be given
to the bearer of the hammer
"giants death", the speed of a hunting hawk to the bearer of the bow "heart
hunter", the brutality of a
lone wolf to the bearer of the axe "skullcrusher",
and the deafening roar of a black lion to the bearer of the sword
Then the dwarf mounted the shakels of metal on the amulets whilst reciting
ancient words of magic power. Thereafter
the amulets were presented to the
dragon lords, who brought them to midgard, home of the thunderwarriors. They
recieved this gift
and a mighty power flushed through their veins. It was the
power of magic-the magic of steel.
Suddenly thunder rocked the
silence, lightning crushed the roof of the hall,
and the two mightiest gods of valhalla -Thor and Odin- stood on the stage. The
of thunder held his hammer on high. Odin wailed his spear into the
audience. Any wimp present knew now that death was imminent. They
as quickly as they came.
In the blink of an eye the thunderwarriors conquered the stage: Once again they
ride side by side with their legion of doom, under the sign of the
wizard, to their next test- the "battle of steel"... So they fought
power of metal and again were victorious. They devoured the hearts and spilled
the blood of their enemies. Their weapons
found the hearts of all decievers and
liers, crushing their bodies to the ground. After the "battle of steel" was
over the ground
was covered by a sea of blood. From that day on the four
thunderwarriors knew that they were forever bound by metal.
