Legends and Rumors

  • Returned to life in the age of fire, started an August blizzard, slain by the Angry Badgers.
  • The winter king was a human warlord who united several gnoll and barbarian tribes.
  • He is called the Winter King because in one long winter he conquered several human cities that were once part of the Old Kingdom. He also claimed a dwarven kingdom on the western side of the broken lands.
  • The winter lasted so long and was so good for the king and his soldiers that it was said he made a pact with a fey lord of great power known as the Lord of Frost.
  • However the Winter King did not count upon the rivalry between the Prince of Frost and the Goddess Winter Queen. The hubris of calling himself the Winter King, did not help. He was cursed so that all he touched turned to ice.
  • Amid the finest food and drink the Winter King starved. He demanded the Prince of Frost remove the curse. The fickle Fey lord instead froze the king solid and entombed his entire fortress in Ice. A frozen pile of skulls became the cairn marking his grave.
