Necromantic Giant Power-Fist OR I took way too long making this.

Hey folks, been a while since I last posted, this is mostly because I got sucked into making this thing look as "perfect" as I could. The name and design are based off of the art and epics of India. Daishasa is a combination of Daitya (a kind of giant) and Rakshasa (a kind of "demon", though they weren't always evil), both of these creatures appear in the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. I wish I had heard of these works sooner, they are on par with Homer's Iliad and Odyssey as far as skill, imagination, and literary importance.

These are the mummified arms of giants called Daishasa who were at war with a vast human empire to the far south-east. To even out the disparity of physical might between humans and the giants, alchemist-necromancers “harvested” the arms to create items that improved a soldier’s fighting capability. With the war now long in the past, these magical tools have made their way to the rest of the world.
