The Ashen Crown
The Ashen Crown-Arkantaash in Goblin-is an artifact of the Dhakaani Empire that could be separated into five pieces. Numerous Dhakaani heroes were known to carry a fragment. All were lost when the empire fell. Among other powers, the Crown could influence death itself.
The five pieces of the Ashen Crown came to be named for their last owners. Karruuk’s circlet, a headband made of gold and mithral (a lightweight, silvery metal), serves as the base. Ashurta’s blade is a frontal ornament. Zaarani’s solitaire and Mukoorak’s orb decorate the Crown like gems. Lurtaan’s cord, a braided mithral chain, wraps around the circlet. The full Crown grants powers similar to the Gentle Repose, Raise Dead, and Speak with Dead rituals.
The Crown once belonged to Valaes Tairn elves who came to Khorvaire in ages past. They made it from four elven magic items, calling it the Crown of Remembrance, or Liryana’tani in Elven. After the goblins captured the Crown, they added a fifth section, Ashurta’s blade.
