This simple ring was forged by the Dwarves of the Hammerfist Holds over 200 years ago for a wizard named Milan. After dying of natural causes, Milan’s apprentice took the ring and kept it as a memory piece of his former master. Recently, the ring was given to the Academy of Ioun in Brindol, and was used periodically by the academy high-guards when on patrol.
