CreationThe history of the Crown of the High Jarnd is steeped in legend and mystery. It is said that the crown was crafted by the greatest blacksmiths of Ironholm, who were aided by powerful sorcerers in imbuing the crown with its magical powers. The crown has been passed down through the generations, originally through the old lords of the keep. However, once the fort was abandoned by the old lords of legend the crown was not seen again.
DiscoveryFor years, the Jarndir Council searched for the lost crown, scouring the city and the surrounding countryside for any sign of its whereabouts. But as the years passed, hope began to fade that the crown would ever be found. It seemed that the Crown of the High Jarnd was destined to remain lost forever, a distant memory of a bygone era.
But then, one day, a group of adventurers stumbled upon a series of tunnels deep beneath the city of Ironholm. The tunnels were ancient and long forgotten, with this discovery a new position was added to the Jarndir Council; the Jarnd of Bones, whose duty it would be to explore these new tunnels.
Over many years the tunnels were further explored until eventually a group of adventuerers found a sealed chest amongst other items in a monster hoard in one of the chambers found in the tunnels. It took over a year and many experts to eventually open the chest, discovering the lost crown inside.
The council was overjoyed at the return of the lost crown, and they knew that it was a sign that the city of Ironholm was destined for great things. The High Jarnd Marcus Riven was adorned with the Black Iron Crown a grand ceremony,
