King of Armageddon
Plural: Kings of Armageddon
Armageddon. The end of not just the world but of everything. The Vikings called it Ragnarok, which is a pretty cool sounding word. It has a distinctive sound to it; it's almost an onomatopoeia.
It'll also destroy all your lands.
There's been a lot of words spilled over the nature of armageddon, whether it will be brought about by angry fire or hateful ice, or the blackness of the void. My money is on the deranged actions of a mad king, for what it's worth.

Armageddon: end it with fire:
- When the end is your desire, 'tis easily done with fire. A meteor blasts your foe, from here to Timbuck-toe. Flaming rock and molten run, that's ? damage done.
Armageddon: end it with ice:
- If candy is dandy and liquor is quicker, surely then ice is twice as nice? Your foe does freeze from head to knees, with ? hit points lost to hoary frost.
Armageddon: end it with blackness:
- Blackness descends. You don't know how long it lasts, or what it does, but when it lifts your foe has nearly met their end. At best guess you'd say they took ? damage.

- Before this item was fully implemented on May 27, the second and third paragraphs read:
- This chess piece is like something Manowar would carry, and it has all the hardcore awesomeness that entails. Consequently, this is a very risky talisman to use. While it has exceptional powers, some of that destructive energy will wash back over you. It'll also destroy all your lands.
- The "Armageddon" card in the Magic: The Gathering card game destroys all "lands" in play.
- The description and the combat skills refer to the poem "Fire and Ice" by Robert Frost.
- In Heroes of Might and Magic III: Armageddon's Blade, Mad King Lucifer attempts to set the world on fire with Armageddon's Blade.
- The previous description referred to the band Manowar, known for the apocalyptic themes in their music.
