This peculiar-looking helmet once belonged to the legendary tournament knight, Sir Kai Yr Wythfed, the greatest horseman in the kingdom of Tekralh.
Its current location is unknown, but it is highly sought after by those who seek renown in the jousting lists.
The magical helm grants no special abilities if worn by someone on foot, however should the wearer be mounted on a mighty stead (be it a horse, pegasus, griffon etc) then it grants the following powers (which probably explain Sir Kai's near-mythical prowess):
- The wearer's riding skill is boosted to +5 (i.e. regardless of what skill he had before, he gains a +5 bonus to all saving throws relating to handling his mount).
- All attacks made from the back of his stead are at +2 (this stacks with any magical bonus from the weapon itself, Strength bonus etc)
- Although the helmet grants no armour class bonus, any attacks that strike the wearer's head (while he is mounted) do half damage.
