Trident

For some it may refer to the mighty weapon of god Neptune (or Poseidon, if you’re across the Ionian sea. Funny thing, when you like music and musicology the so-called greek modes are all based on names of greek-related people during Antiquity. Ionian mode refers to the major scale. But I digress. Also funny thing planet Neptune has a moon called Triton, and in the Mythology Triton was the son of Poseidon, which is the Greek equivalent of Neptune. Am I digressing again ?)

Anyway, as Mjólnir is Thor’s mighty hammer, the trident represents Poseidon’s (or Neptune’s) most iconic weapon. It’s a pole weapon. I think I remember in Roman times some spear-like weapons were used as thrusting weapon (a long pole weapon) such as hasta, some were shorter and used as ranged weapons: pilums (pilii? pila?) which were throwing javelins that also were used as a specific trial in Olympic events and still do today. Good thing what we have as Olympic games today didn’t originate from the Vikings and Scandinavians, a Mjólnir throwing event feels quite dangerous. Although there is a hammer throwing event in Olympic games. What do you mean I’m beside the point again ?

Let’s get back to topic. I decided to have the shaft made out of prismarine-like material, and the head itself iron. This makes for nice reflections and speculars.

Ymir beta 2… wait. Now I remember (thanks to the symphonic metal band Therion, mostly) that Ymir was a giant in Viking mythology that built the world of man, Midgard, from one of his brows. I might digress but you have to note the consistency.

There I hope you’ll find that enjoyable. As for other items I didn’t go for custom models because Vanillaccurate is about keeping an “as close to vanilla as possible” look. Realaccurate might be different in that regard though.

Cheers!
