Linnorm King

From PathfinderWiki
The accession of a Linnorm King. See also Category:Images of Linnorm Kings.

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 King2 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


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.
