The Opal Empire
Crowns of Power
The Opal Empire has crowns of power, created before the fall of the gods. Each was designed to inspire confidence and loyalty, to control people, and to provide magical protection to the wearer. The exact powers are known only to their wearers.
Eight were forged. Four were made for the elves, one for each Kingdom of Seasons. They still have theirs. Four were made for the dwarves but only one remains in their custody. The Stone King, ruler of all dwarves, has the first. The Horselord, “prince” of barbarians, took the second. The Fallen, an angelic lord, has the third. The last is lost to time.
