Zero Hammers of Returning

The Zero Hammers of Returning are magical hammersGromminique Riptor found in the Gimli Mines.
The Hammers are small, silvered and weighted for throwing, and have a special enchantment that returns them to hand when thrown. They proved to be exceedingly useful if not life-saving during the events of the Destruction of the Gimli Mines, when wielded by Ludvig van Drunken, then Dmitry Xant ant Gromminique during the escape.

However, they had a very dangerous property to them.
The Hammers had Zero-Stones inside of them, mystical objects that are bound to a particular quest. Until the quest can be completed, they slowly cause in insanity in, sicken and eventually kill their wielder, even when not in use or at a distance. Gromminique replaced the previous, deceased wielder when he picked them up for the first time.

As time went on, Gromminique got sicker and crazier until the party met the Strazh, a secretive group that has decided to help the PCs. While Gromminique rest in their base resting, some of the others ventured to a relatively nearby Orst camp to steal some rare herbs and lichens to be used in a ritual to break the Zero-Stones and their quest-drive, forever opening the hammers up to be used.
