Ring, legendary (requires attunement)

This ring is made of a pure black metal and is in the form of a dragon eating its own tail, with ruby eyes. On the inside of the ring is an inscription that reads:

Speak thine dragons true name.

A legendary knight forged this ring in the breath of every type of dragon. He soon discovered that in the heat of battle, he could summon dragons to his aid. He lived for hundreds of years and fought in countless battles. One fateful day, the knight angered a lich. Later that year, the lich and a shadow dragon attacked the knight. The lich was destroyed in the battle, but not before dealing the knight a mortal wound. The knight summoned a golden dragon with his last breath, and the dragon healed him. The lich's shadow dragon was taken by the ring's beauty, and in this moment of hesitation, the knight struck. When the knight struck with what would have been a killing blow, an unearthly scream rent the air. A vortex formed, sucking the shadow dragon into the ring. Throughout the next few months, the knight heard voices at night that slowly and inexorably drew him into madness. He attempted to destroy the ring, knowing that it was the cause of his madness. However, this attempt failed, and he died. His ring then became lost to the ages.
