Golestandt, also known as The Ageless One, is the Dragon Aspect of Dark Magic, first seen in The Silvermine Mountains, when he was freed from the mountain by members of the Cult of Bones. Followers of Golestandt gain the Herald of Bones attribute.

History

Golestandt is the only Dragon Aspect who is completely feral when he lost his mind after the death of his father, Sun Dragon Phanto. Golestandt does not seem to care or interact with the realm in a conscious way, but his presence often causes the death and destruction of thousands every time he awakens from a slumber. In truth, Golestandt merely wants to be left alone to suffer the burden of embodying the heaviest of magics, Death. Those who bathed in his deadly black smoke are killed instantly only to be reborn as an Ageless without a mind and forever doomed.

Many Years ago, Virgo Sunsword did battle with the Cult of Bones and their deity, Golestandt. Although the Cultists, being Ageless, were nearly unkillable, Virgo found a way to defeat and kill off many of them, by crushing their skulls. He also found a way to defeat the Ageless One, and force him into a prolonged slumber. Where the Ageless One slept, Virgo ordered the construction of Mountains on top of it. These mountains became the Silvermine Mountains.

The Silvermine Mountains

It is revealed that the "silver" the Elves have been eating to lengthen their lives are the scales of Golestandt. The mining of the mountain is an attempt to weaken the beast within. The Ageless One was released from his prison in the Silvermine Mountains by a group of criminals led by the Cultist Khn'n-Rell, and flew off into the world, destroying the Mountain in his wake.

Woodcarvers

After having been freed from the Silvermine Mountains, Golestandt went around casting death and destruction wherever he went. One of the locations he destroyed was the small Dwarven village of Waldon. His Dragon Breath not only destroyed the town, but converted all the people in it and around it into mindless Ageless. He continued to fly onwards after destroying the town.

Powers & Abilities

  • Black Smoke Breath: Golestandt can breathe a black smoke from his mouth, causing complete destruction of everything it touches, killing any living creatures and reincarnating them as mindless Ageless beings, that can also exhale this smoke, spreading the affliction of it. He demonstrated this ability when he destroyed the town of Waldon, converting its inhabitants into these mindless Ageless creatures.

Trivia

  • Golestandt is the first canon Dragon in URealms Live.
  • Golestandt and Colin the Behemoth may be somehow related, due to The Cult of Bones worshiping and/or revering both of them.
  • The Ageless One has a powerful silver on his body. Consuming this silver, after it goes through an unknown process, makes a person ageless. Rich and powerful Elves, such as those in the Sunsword Family, are the ones who mostly consume this metal.
  • The storyline of the The Silvermine Mountains campaign was voted on by fans, and the winning storyline introduced the Ageless One.
    • If another storyline would have been picked instead in The Silvermine Mountains, the "wall" consisting of scales of The Ageless One would instead be portrayed as a poorly designed wall.
