The Crown consists of seven wide steel blades protruding upwards from a dark iron circlet. Placing the circlet upon ones head causes seven smaller blades to spear downwards, painfully clamping the circlet to ones head. .
A bearer of the Crown gains greater control over Portals, particularly enhancing the Planeshifters Quick Portal ability in various ways.
The Crown itself has almost no personality of it’s own, although it responds positively to actions that seem to lead to the healing of the Planar Drift.
It’s ultimate purpose remains mysterious.
