Witness a historic sword dance. (10 Min Cooldown)
Using this item causes four sword-bearing female dwarves to appear. They dance in formation for a few seconds, ending with a clap and a bow.
You can tell right away that this drinking cup holds far more significance than mere drinking (not that dwarves have any problem with mere drinking). The bit of runes you can make out suggest a ceremonial purpose.
In addition to the many jewels adorning it, this chalice is virtually covered with runes celebrating an old ascension ceremony for dwarven kings. Drinking from this chalice was certainly a part of it, but the runes go on to describe a 'sword dance' done by female dwarven warriors. This performance, part ritual and part mock battle, apparently evolved from bloody duels fought during less sophisticated times in dwarven history.
