Chronicles of Neverael
Iron Crown of the North
This crown appears to be forged out of some strange, translucent silver-gray metal. It is intricately carved with thousands of interconnected runes and snowflake-esque sigils. Set into the crown are three iridescent gemstones which burn with a cold inner fire.
This is the crown of the Izhendarc Emperors – first worn by Ravel Izhendarc I and now resting on the head of Athros Izhendarc V. It has been passed down from Emperor to Emperor for the past 800 years and is, quite literally, the symbol of the Izhendarc Empire – the crown’s likeness is displayed proudly in the sigil of House Izhendarc and, also, on the banners and pennants of the Empire.
The crown is attributed many supernatural qualities and is rumored to play a large part in keeping the various Emperor’s seated on the throne. Any Emperor who has lost the crown has, shortly thereafter, been removed from power – usually by the one who absconded with the relic.
