Axes and Anvils
The Tragedy of Gilvern the Mighty Axe
As the clanhome was overrun with elementals, Gilvern the Mighty Axe converted to the Gods of Ur. He led half the clan against the other half, converting them to worship instead of mere respect. The High King promised to convert as well, if Gilvern could deliver certain clan treasures he would soon control to the High King as tithe.
But the High King had no intention of converting, and when he got the treasures, he stabbed Gilvern and dumped his body in the loch. Gilvern’s mighty spirit cursed the High King and his dynasty.
Shortly afterwards, the dynasty fell from power and a new dynasty rose to the High King’s position. But the former High King’s family was still cursed, as they schemed to reclaim the throne—as they scheme even today.
