Gunhildre is a famous cannon forged of Starfall Steel and used during the Feral Risings, first by the pro-slavery forces of Ganza, and later seized by the Fanged Heap and passed on to Alec Dødhandler‘s forces for their siege of the college-town of the Aetun. The engineer who crafted the cannon claims that he named it after Baron Rymlangt’s fat wife. The cannon is fifty tons, with a barrel twenty feet long and shooting balls weighing about a hundred and ten pounds. It takes a full team of magebred stallions to move and position the wheeled cannon.
The elizadry used on the cannon amplifies the explosive force of its shot, and seems to coat the cannonballs launched from it with a white sheen of flame. Shot fired from this cannon annihilate stonework with ease, and it is said that pond-sized depressions form. where the cannonballs land.
Gunhildre currently rests at Fort Conscience in Usterine, still symbolically aimed at the college of Aetun.
