Amoung the frozen mountain peaks of the Tsulah range Barbarian tribes of Paraya wander, their musicians or Skalds as they are known are said to be able to disfigure others with words alone.
This particular object is said to be the result of one such disfigurement, after a chief of the eastern peaks failed to pay his minstrels they cursed his hands to be as cold as his heart.
It is said that he died unable to eat his frozen food and that on his passing his curse passed into his ring so that his miserly ways would live in infamy.
