Artifacts of Lore #4: Poseidon's Trident
At the dawn of time, the Olympian Gods waged a terrible war, known as the Titanomachy, against their forefathers the Titans. During the war cyclopses forged mighty weapons for the gods: most notably Zeusís Lightning Bolts, Hadesí Helm of Darkness, and Poseidonís Trident. These weapons helped the Olympians triumph over the Titans, and went on to become signature weapons of the gods.
After the war, Poseidon took domain of the oceans, storms, and earthquakes, and his trident took on powers from his domain. Poseidon keeps a tight grasp on his trident. He only lends to the most powerful of mortals, and only to defeat a threat that endangers the gods themselves. If Poseidon grants the PCs his trident, it probably means the Titans are on the rise.
