For 1300 years, each High Jarl of Hammerhome would be given Rektor upon election to the position.
It was with great shock and a good deal of horror then, when High Jarl Feldar Ironfurrow discovered the weapon had been stolen during the reign of his predecessor, High Jarl Koll Fireplume. Apparently, Koll decided to keep the matter a state secret and had a ceremonial replica crafted in Rektor's theft. While Feldar was furious, he understood the decision and adopted it, fearing unrest and revolt from his citizenry.
So, for the last 700 years, the first state secret each newly elected High Jarl learns is that Rektor has been stolen and each is then placed in charge of the Anvil, the dwarven secret service pledged to find and retrieve Rektor for their new High Jarl and Moradin himself. Unfortunately, the Anvil has not been very successful.
But much of the blame lies in the fact that Garvin the Shadespeaker, cousin to the Apostate Ori Bludnehare, hired a band of thieves known only as the Gloaming to steal his people's greatest treasure. Garvin was convinced his Idol of Perrin would work, but wanted Rektor in case something went wrong.
Unfortunately for Garvin and all of those living in Blundenhare's Mine, the Shadespeaker was wrong about the safety of his scryings and about his people's security with the Warden Hammer.
It would take nearly 700 years for the weapon to be unearthed by a band of hapless adventurers.
