Thanks to this unusually generous page of exposition , we know that The Platonic Solid is the name of the mace Andronicus Valois wields as The Storm King. The King received it from Queen Albia of England, but its ultimate origin is unknown.

The head of the mace is a (more or less?) octagonal prism. This shape, despite the weapon's name, is not a Platonic solid (see below).

The Jägermonsters refer to it as Smasher, and indeed, it enables the King to smash even through the ground under Paris to tunnel directly where he wants to go .

Ancient Greek dice

1st Century AD Greek die, one of the five Platonic Solids.

The usual meaning of Platonic solid is one of the five regular, convex polyhedra.

(Note: Except for the cube (which could be considered a square prism), prisms are not Platonic solids.)

An ancient Greek form of die, the icosahedron, is classed as a Platonic Solid and is a very recognized shape amongst tabletop gamers and roleplayers today as the D20. In fact, all of the common gaming dice are Platonic solids.
