The runes of the activation dial

On the thirty-sixth of Bloom, Olive Mollin discovered the rudimentary rites of this spell’s operation. A dial with two positions, each marked with a High Gothic rune, appears to awaken the spell’s machine spirit, permitting the trigger to be squeezed. A catch on the left side of the weapon releases the metal box from the front of the weapon, and a slider appears to request greater or lesser fury from the spirit. When awakened, the green glass on the side of the weapon illuminates, which Olive suspects shows the remaining number of times the spell will shoot.

This spell’s spirit kicks more than its smaller cousin, but it appears to be relatively simple to use the tube atop the weapon to point it at the target. Additionally, the metal stock at the butt of the weapon can be folded back and locked in place with a catch, permitting it to be braced against the shoulder like a crossbow for additional stability. Compared to a crossbow, it creates a deep but narrow wound. With the slider fully forward, it had enough power to split a length of wood whole from the side of a tree trunk.
