Ulhdag smiled a rotten smile and lifted up the next serving of food.
"The Maw-Catcher was a grand invention. It took many a Houk raiding afield to find all the parts. Claws from Doomwyrms, the hair from ten thousand K’iou, the bones of Llandreu, and enough magi cannon crystals to arm a warship.
The assembly was built into the very coastline around this citadel. And when a massive beast approached, the Maw-Catcher would rise from the depths and latch upon it. With a single command, the magi cannons would fire, cutting the beast apart for parts. It worked on monsters, ships and even the Leviathian Felspar.
The Houks were always angry that they never got a chance to deploy the Maw-Catcher on the Maw-of-the-Deep, but that honor was instead given to the Daemonsbane monster who carved the Maw-of-the-Deep into tiny tiny pieces.
But the Nightmare Lords learned this lesson and when they attacked they attacked from the sky.
I am sure the Maw-Catcher is still there, deep within the bay. Probably still attacking and sinking boats which may explain why the Sea Kings never come a calling on their Yyan Gor allies…"
Ulhdag smacked his lips and said, “Yes I am sure a salvager could gain a pretty shiny simply searching the icy waters around this place. Of course they might want to beware of unexploded ordinance and savage aquatic nightmares.”
