The Rose of Salthollow is a unique morning star in Pillars of Eternity.
||A young weapon with a relatively short history, the Rose was forged from blackened Ymyran steel and topped with a wickedly thorny “bloom” of petals. The morning star’s resemblance to its namesake doesn't end with the head. Its long, faded black shaft also features small thorns along its entire length, causing discomfort even to an armored wielder.
Hacran Grist, a successful adventurer from the Readceran seaside village of Salthollow, had the gnarly weapon made after his friends joked about how nothing could grow in the alkaline soil of their home. Hacran used the Rose to defend Salthollow from bandits and to help his comrades kill two sky drakes that had made their lair near a road leading into the village. When Salthollow no longer held the wonder for them that it once had, Hacran and his friends made their way to Dyrwood to seek their fortunes in the ruins of Eir Glanfath. They have not been heard from since.
