Bestiary entry Edit

Page 1: Observations Edit

Being a magickal construct, fashioned of pure mythril. Though mythril's strength in proportion to its weight surpasses any other metal, many layers of such were used in the construction of this golem, sacrificing lightness for sheer durability. Machines of war, the destructive power of these golems is greatly feared on the battlefield.

Page 2: The Annals Edit

In the deepest reaches of the past, an underground kingdom there was, and here did they make the metal known as mythril, a metal so strong that even magma cannot mar it. The flame gigas saw this and were displeased, and so did they launch a grand assault on the kingdom under the earth. At the end of a long, brutal war, the gigas were defeated, yet the kingdom too, fell into ruin, sinking deeper still beneath the surface, away from the light, and into obscurity until it and its prized mythril were discovered by adventurers centuries later.

Etymology Edit

The word "mythril" or "mithril" is a metal found in many fantasy worlds. It was originally introduced by the fantasy writings of J. R. R. Tolkien, being present in his Middle-earth. It resembles silver but is stronger than steel, and much lighter in weight than either. The author first wrote of it in The Lord of the Rings, and it is retrospectively mentioned in the third, revised edition of The Hobbit in 1966. In the first 1937 edition, the mail shirt given to Bilbo is described as being made of "silvered steel". The name mithril comes from two words in Sindarin—mith, meaning "grey" or "mist", and ril meaning "glitter".

In Jewish and Medieval folklore, a golem is an animated anthropomorphic being, magically created entirely from inanimate matter. The word was used to mean an amorphous, unformed material (usually out of stone and clay) in Psalms and medieval writing. Adam, the first man created by God in the Holy Bible, was a golem since he was created from dust and sand. Having a golem servant was seen as the ultimate symbol of wisdom and holiness, with stories of prominent Rabbis owning golems throughout the middle ages. In modern times, the word golem, sometimes pronounced goilem in Yiddish, has come to mean one who is slow, clumsy, and generally dimwitted.
