Material Eternium

The crowned spiked helmet of chaos lordship is an artifact helmet that first appeared in ADOM v 1.2.0.

Wearing the helmet provides a +6 increase to Strength, and useful intrinsics like see invisible and water breathing. It also spreads terror, which has the same effect as the unholy aura corruption.

In its unidentified form, it appears as a spiked helmet.


Overall, it is a very good artifact due to its large PV bonus, Strength boost and intrinsics. The spread of terror it brings can range from being annoying to saving the PC's life, depending on whether the scared monster needs to be killed (for a quest or items) or is potentially very dangerous. Unlike the unholy aura corruption, it at least can be easily removed at will before going shopping. Of course, if the PC has an unholy aura anyway then they will face no problems by equipping the helmet.

Guaranteed/Common sourcesEdit

It is a possible crowning gift for Chaos Knights; given the nature of the artifact, it is likely that it cannot be generated for any other PCs.
