Its always been a hammer.
This +1 hammer allows all allies you can see to stand as a free action if they are prone. Additionally, if you attack using this hammer and miss all targets, your next attack before the end of your next turn deals an additional 2d6. On a critical, it does an additional 1d6.
Initially acquired as a Life-drinker hammer from Malareth’s chief henchman, the bugbear Karrak. Thoradin discovered from Skioth, a weapons trader, that the weapon was actually a hammer from a set of Aleheart Armor, standard armor that was worn by members of a band of dwarven adventurers of that name. Skioth restored the hammer, giving it its current stats.
