The Golden Throne

Wondrous item, very rare

Hephaestus, god of the forge, was thrown from Mount Olympus by his cruel mother Hera when he was only an infant. As he aged and grew angry with her for this malicious act against a mere child, he devised a scheme of revenge. Hephaestus crafted a golden throne lavish enough to entice the queen of the gods and sent it to her as a gift. Gladly, she accepted and sat down without a second thought. Invisible chains grasped her body and restrained her in place. None in Mount Olympus could free her on to free his mother and it was only when Dionysus inebriated him that he agreed to free her. The Golden Throne is made of solid gold and exquisitely detailed. Naturally, the material value of such an object is beyond comprehension. The curse of this throne still remains and any who sit in it will be trapped there. None may escape except by the hands of Hephaestus or the spell wish.
