These powerful weapons are favoured by battle magicians across the Empire. Whether being used by a Highborn Magister to smash through a defensive battle line alongside the cataphracts, or hurling a chosen target or employed by a thresher to separate an enemy sorcerer from her allies, a Stormweaver is a clear sign of a magician who appreciates the potent control offered by the repel spell.

The only drawback to a Stormweaver - and it is very slight - is that the rod seems to attract storms. On land this generally leads to slightly heavier rainfall, or the occasional unpleasant gale. At sea, it can be life-threatening. Very few ship's captains will allow a Stormweaver aboard, especially on a ship sailing out of sight of land. The exception are the most adventurous Freeborn corsairs or Steinr merchant-traders, who often welcome the opportunity for excitement an unexpected, magically enhanced, storm can offer.
