Diadem of the Giant-kings
|Diadem of the Giant-kings|
|An ornate diadem worn by the Giant-kings|
Description[edit | edit source]
|“||Kallian Publico believed that it contained the diadem of the giant-kings, of the people who dwelt in that dark land before the ancestors of the Stygians came there. He showed me a design carved on the lid, which he swore was the shape of the diadem which legend tells us the monster-kings wore.||„|

Too large to be worn by a human, this diadem hums with contained power. Taken from the Priestking of the Giant-kings - known today as the Barrow King - the story of the diadem is one of betrayal and hatred.
It seems that the Priestking was the father of Tyros the Deathbringer. Tyros turned against his father at some point during the war between the Lemurians and the Giant-kings and his father cursed him, and all of his loyal warriors.
Such is the strength of the diadem, that Tyros and his men were cursed to live forever, a Silent Legion brooding in the ruins of the north.
