Magic Item Monday: Crown of the Long-Dead King

Crown of the Long-Dead King – Major Artifact

Aura strong necromancy; CL 20th
Slot head; Weight 4 lbs.

Description

Long ago, the tales say, there lived a nameless king. His people knew not what to call him, nor what to make of his strange and silent guardians that marched out from his vast stone fortress. One day, however, the king and all his armies disappeared–some say their life force was sucked away and bound within the nameless king’s crown. Legends hold that should someone find and don the crown, his visage will peel away and he shall appear as the king in his last moments. Legends go on to say that the bearer of the crown will gain a +6 enhancement bonus to Charisma,  +2 to the DC of any necromancy spell he casts, and the ability to control an additional 10 HD of undead through spells. Some even whisper that those with the ability to command undead as the feat can do so as a swift action while wearing the crown–but they are obviously madmen.

Destruction

The Crown of the Long-Dead King can only be destroyed by a Paladin of at least 10th level who has never killed a living being.
