The heavy spiked mace "Michals Transmogrifier" is a non-guaranteed one-handed artifact weapon. Skeletons damaged by it are transformed into stone statues, and stone statues damaged by it are tamed. It appears as a heavy mace when unidentified, but can be distinguished from normal heavy maces by its unusual weight.


It is not a very good weapon. Its damage is unremarkable. Its transforming and taming abilities can be used to make a fireproof companion. Spreading terror is inconvenient against normal monsters, and can get the PC killed by shopkeepers.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

It can be granted as a precrowning gift or a reward for making use of a potion of uselessness, generated in a surge of power or greater vault, or generated as random loot (albeit very rarely).
