79 CAVE OF THE TRISKELION STATUE. This statue is of a crying man with a nine tailed whip. It is dressed as is typical of such statues: bare of chest, with a Phrygian style hat, and skirt-like base like those used in antique armor. Three horizontal holes in a line are in its chest, made to accept the three prongs on the magic weapon Dengurhamar in its trident form found in Room 22.
If the prongs from the trident are fitted in its chest, it will release its hold on the nine tailed whip it is holding.
The nine tailed whip is actually made of gold, silver, copper, platinum, and mithril and worth 10000 gold crescents. It can be used in combat as a flail and has the unusual property of being able to hit any creature that can normally only be hit by magical weapons (even those needing +2, +3, +4, etc. weapons to hit). It does not actually provide a bonus to hit or damage. The gold and silver parts are not very strong and every time a natural '1' is rolled while it is being used in combat it will dent and lose 10% of its current value.
