This is a story of a ring and locket, that are both blessed and cursed. When a man wears the ring and woman wears the locket magic happens.
They were forged by a wizard for an evil king obsessed with gaining land/power, but unable to gain it through warfare.
The ring/Lockett combination allowed him to seduce Ladies and Princesses to gain power through marriage.
That was a long time ago, and the items have been kept together and passed down through family, became pawned and eventually ended up in my hands.
