Kingdom Death Monster - Olympus Finale

Long ago, ravenous beasts searched the darkness, using their keen senses to find their prey. In the distance, they saw a blooming pillar of light surrounded by tasty morsels bustling in their tiny industry.

Licking their chops, they approached. But the beasts halted mid-step. The wind carried a foul, menacing presence. Surely the busy creatures were harmless. Yet, the menacing warning persisted, felt in their very bones. Instinctively, the beasts turned away, seeking their meals elsewhere.

Four chosen survivors prepare the face their ultimate predator, the mysterious being that slumbers at the center of the vast chamber hidden within the lantern horde.

Artemis, master of the bow, wears the trusty old rawhide armor, along with a lucky charm, and carries a cat gut bow and a beacon shield.

Aphrodite, the sword master, wears the screaming armor, forsaker mask, and a lucky charm. She is armed with the steel sword and protected by the other beacon shield.

Hephaestus wears the suit of lantern armor, another lucky charm, and a monster tooth necklace and carries a deadly, but somewhat difficult to use, whistling mace.

Odysseus, who has nearly mastered the use of his twilight sword, wears a full suit of phoenix armor and has the additional protection of the man mask.

These chosen survivors are joined by the rest of the settlement's population gathering at the lantern hoard. Bracing themselves in anticipation of the terrifying unknown they must confront, the Olympians enter the chamber to face their destiny.

Kingdom Death Monster - Olympus Year 25

The Olympians still need several specific types of phoenix resource in order to complete a full set of phoenix armor. To increase their chances of acquiring the necessary resources, they decide to risk hunting an adult (level 2) phoenix. They know how risky such an encounter can be, and even how dangerous the search for such a monster can be, having experienced near disaster attempting it before. Artemis, Hera, Romulus, and Remus are chosen to undertake the perilous hunt.

Artemis wears the trusty rawhide armor and carries a cat gut bow, claw head arrow, and a beacon shield. She insist on going on the hunt because she feels that with just a little more experience, she will be able to completely master the art of the bow. Hera wears the phoenix helm, placart, and greaves, and carries a scrap sword and beacon shield. Romulus wears the screaming armor and cat eye circlet. He is armed with the counter-weighted axe and carries a first aid kit to bolster their survivability. Remus wears the suit of lantern armor and is armed with a whistling mace, the blunt weapon made much more effective with the additional weight of the armor behind every swing.

As prepared as they can be, the brave survivors depart on their hunt.
