Kingdom Death Monster - Olympus Year 21

Dionysus, Aphrodite, Hera, and Athena II prepare to hunt an ancient (level 3) screaming antelope. Dionysus wears screaming armor, a forsaker mask, and a lucky charm. He is armed with his twilight sword and a beacon shield. Hera wears the lantern helm, cuirass, mail, and greaves. She also wears monster grease to make her harder to hit and carries dried acanthus to apply to any severe wounds. She is armed with a scrap sword, and wears a monster tooth necklace to increase the strength of her attacks. Aphrodite and Athena both wear full rawhide armor with monster grease applied and carry some dried acanthus. Aphrodite carries the adventure sword and a beacon shield, while Athena is armed with a counterweighted axe and is wearing a cat eye circlet.

Not far from Olympus, the survivors are struck by the scent of rotting meat wafting from a hulking corpse ahead. As they get closer they discover the corpse is that of a dead antelope, and are startled by the arrival of the antelope's killer, a massive (level 4) white lion! The lion doesn't spot them and the survivors are able to sneak up behind it. Unknown to them, this is a particularly ancient and rare white lion with golden eyes (lion gains +1 speed and +2 accuracy, and when survivors attack they suffer 3 brain damage unless in its blind spot). Though they prepared for a showdown with a screaming antelope, the survivors are unwilling to waste the opportunity before them and resolve to attack the lion.

Kingdom Death Monster - Olympus Year 20

Another butcher approaches Olympus from the darkness. Zeus gathers Hera, Hephaestus, and Artemis to defend their settlement from the monster. Zeus wears rawhide armor and a forsaker mask and carries the adventure sword. Hera carries a scrap sword and beacon shield and wears lantern helm, mail, greaves, and cuirass. Hephaestus wears the other set of rawhide armor and is armed with a cat gut bow and claw head arrow. He also carries bandages to use on any severe bleeding. Artemis wears a suit of screaming armor and a cat eye circlet, and will fight with the cleaver taken from the last butcher who tried to enter Olympus.
