The Accession of a Linnorm King

A Linnorm King is a ruler of one of the kingdoms within the nation known as the Lands of the Linnorm Kings in the north-western reaches of Avistan. To become a Linnorm King, a contender must defeat a linnorm in single combat and carry the creature's severed head through the gates of the city he or she wishes to rule.[1] Legends state that one day a Linnorm King will rise to unite all the regions of the Lands of the Linnorm Kings and that this High King[2] will need to slay the 'Father of All Linnorms', Fafnheir, to claim that title. The very first Linnorm King, King Saebjorn Arm-Fang, attempted this prize but failed.[3]

History

At the mouth of the Rimeflow River, Saebjorn Arm-Fang killed a linnorm in -624 AR in single combat. Thereafter he declared himself the first Linnorm King and set up his capital by founding Kalsgard. It is from -624 AR that historians date the foundation of the nation of the Lands of the Linnorm Kings.
