It also grants Delusion (The more people who see the Planar Crystal of Desire, the more powerful I become) (optionally, this may not be entirely inaccurate, with the bonus from Higher Purpose increasing slowly as more people see it). The number of deaths that have occurred as a result are estimated to be in the thousands.
