Created On This Crystal Skull is an Atyar Temple Guardian, found in the Thanatar Temple beneath Plateau Wrath It was a HeroQuest in the First Age and has been active ever since When Arkat destroyed the Atytar Cult in Dorastor, the Crystal Skull was lost, buried within the Ruins, but was awakened when Ralzakark reformed Fort Wrath and the new Thanatar cult found the old Atyar Temple Now, the Crystal Skull acts as a Temple Guardian and keeps the Old Secrets that most other people have forgotten

The Crystal Skull is a giant Human Skull made entirely of clear, glowing crystal.Anyone coming close will be unable to determine the type of crystal as it is unknown elsewhere. Any chippings from the Skull act as POW Storage Crystals but scream loudly when brought into daylight.
