Thundering was a magical weapon quality.
When a weapon of this type hit a creature in a vital area, it produced a loud sound like thunder. This sound was powerful enough to damage the creature hit, and that creature could be permanently deafened by the noise. The wielder of the thundering weapon was not affected.
