Story[edit | edit source]

This helm was forged five centuries ago by the legendary dwarven smith Ordleif. She crafted it for her husband, Jarvind, the Langebukk patriarch, before the clan forever left their homeland in the Five Kings Mountains and traveled north to establish a new trade route in the River Kingdoms. These troubled lands proved to be full of dangers, especially the territory known today as the Stolen Lands, where the dwarves encountered their sworn enemies – giants.

A tribe of hill giants – led by a stone giant called Dagr the Earthraker – ran rampant in the area where the dwarves were building their citadel, Bronzeshield Fortress. The giants would appear out of nowhere, throw large boulders at the dwarves, and disappear before reinforcements could arrive. Infuriated, Jarvind called a hunt for Dagr – and, unfortunately for him, was successful.

On a frosty winter morning, a small patrol of dwarves led by Jarvind himself encountered the giants' main force. The dwarven trumpeter barely had time to reach for the horn before being crushed by a thrown boulder. Realizing his chances were slim, Jarvind charged Dagr, hoping for an honest one-on-one fight. His enchanted helm protected him, deflecting all the flying stones, but once the two adversaries clashed in close combat, Dagr grabbed Jarvind and hurled him against the nearest cliff.

The dwarven patriarch was dead before he hit the ground. The moment he died, his helm shattered to pieces with a thunderous clang that echoed for miles. Ordleif gathered the dwarven forces and hurried to the battlefield. In a great battle, the tribe of giants was destroyed, and the body of Jarvind was returned to the fortress for burial. The dwarves were able to find several shards of the helm, which they kept as relics, but many shards were lost. No one ever managed to collect all the shards and reforge the artifact, until now.
