Description[edit | edit source]
The throne was made from the fused bones of the orc-king's defeated enemies, particularly the defenders of Uthtower and Phalorm, and a great crag cat. The seat itself was made from the ribcage of the crag cat and the back was a triangular stack of skulls, each with a single eye of Gruumsh. The stairs leading up to the throne were believed to be made from the skulls of six Phalorm princes. Overall the throne had a diameter of over 12 feet (3.7 meters) and a height of 10 feet (3 meters).
Powers[edit | edit source]
When someone sat upon the throne, they could call upon its various powers. Among them were the ability to shroud the throne in unholy darkness, command nearby creatures, spew a cloud of greasy darkness, and cloak themselves in a dragon-shaped shroud of bones. Perhaps the most powerful ability of the throne, and the one that gave its name, was the ability to summon forth a "blood elemental" of varying degrees in size. The elemental was essentially a water elemental whose touch could cause one's blood to boil.
History[edit | edit source]
Fashioned for the first king of Uruth Ukrypt, the Bloodbone Throne went on to serve two additional orcish kings in the Sword Mountains. During the Rage of Dragons, the realm was attacked by the black dragon Shammagar and the green dragon Claugiyliamatar. Among the treasures claimed by Shammagar was the throne. When a rogue named Asilther Graelor plundered Shammagar's hoard over three centuries later, she took possession of the throne for a short time. It was soon lost in transit on its way to Herald's Holdfast during an ambush near the town of Nesmé. Where it went from there is not definitively known. Rumors spread that it may have been in the western reaches of the High Forest, where it was being used by an antlered orc king.
