A tormentum is a type of catapult used to throw censers at large nadderers. They are deployed on harbour fortresses such as those guarding High Vesting[1] and the arx maria of Brandenbrass[2] as well as on the largest of the rams, the main-sovereigns.


"Tormentum" has several meanings in Latin referring both to torment or torture as well as ranged weaponry. In the latter sense, it may denote the twisted skein of rope that powers a catapult or ballista.
