[actual play] Kingdom Death: Monster - People of the Stars - Lantern Years 7-9 - Of Gods and Stars


Aido, Akhekhu, Agri-manios and Abzu set out on another hunt for the Antelope. They search the desolate darkness, finding a pile of vomit from one of the creatures, recovering a piece of pelt and a large tooth from the belly of one of the beasts. In the night Agri was lucky to wake before an insect bit off his manhood. The next day, from the dark, a man with two mouths, or a mouth split in two, presented each with a wager, and none of them had the will to try again.

Then from the night, a roaring lion attacked. The battle was bloody and testing, as this was the first creature of this size they had faced. Agri died of fear as the beast bellowed, and Abzu was torn apart. But eventually the beast was slain.

Returning the the camp, a stranger in the night approached, and a number of the camp faced them and their lanterns dimmed, each feeling drained of life.

Aido Wedo Gold, Akhekhu Gold, Alicha Gold and Aida Hwedo set out to find an Antelope, hoping to find the beast and not a wild and ravenous lion. The journey was hard as the beasts were migrating. They then came upon a large book, but none had the understanding to know how to write in it. They were able to track the beasts as they found acanthus plants strewn about and half chewed.

As they trekked along the plains they came upon a towering, five-sided pillar. A pillar of flesh, and limbs and organs. They chose to move on, and heard a loud booming voice break the silence of the darkness.

The battle with the antelope was some what easy for the hunters, as they easily surrounded it and directed it. Aida dealt horrific wounds thanks to his acidic fists, but was severely wounded in one arm, leaving him able to only fight one handed.

With the antelope dead, they returned to camp and were met by a strange person, apparently a dentist. But none needed their skills, or wished to risk their crazy augmentations.

The Tyrant once more descended from his throne to test his people. Aapep, Alicha Gold, Aida Hwedo and Abrasax faced the imposing figure, striking with fist, spear, axe and sword. They arranged themselves to work against the Tyrant and his supernatural ability to teleport. With Aapep striking at the Tyrant's heart and slaying him. Or at least that was what they thought had happened. The Tyrant stood up, impressed by his pets, and blessed Aapep. She was now closer to the Tyrant with even more dragon gifts, and he presented her with a shimmering spear of celestial iron.

He led the warriors back to the camp and looked to the sky, and the heavens opened. Alklha Gold is blessed with ability to resist injuries. Aapef gains the noble title of Lead, and Am-mit is born to him and Aapep, a child blessed by the Tyrant and already skilled in the spear. Aida Hwedo gains the noble title of Mercury and is also marked as reincarnated and endowed with great strength. Abrasax also gained a reincarnated title, Titanium, and remembered his previous life and ability with the axe.

Many of the camps were becoming more powerful and more like their Tyrant lord.
