The Spirit King is a shabbily dressed beggar who was a powerful defender of the weak when he owned his magical armour and sword. The armour was composed of a mail shirt, boots, gauntlets, a belt, a helmet and a shield. When the Spirit King wields his sword he grows in stature and has a glowing aura, able to summon spirit warriors from the Hall of Bones.
Kelek stole his armour and sword and hid them across the Realm. The mail shirt was guarded by simian bats, the boots in a norkers' village, the gauntlets guarded by Lolth, the belt found by peskies, the helmet on a block of marble inside the Hall of Bones, the shield in the Rotwood Inn and the sword in the Crypt of Doors.
