|User||Harbour fortresses |
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 and the arx maria of Brandenbrass 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.
