[New Monster] Elaphos Khrysokeros

Elaphos Khrysokeros

 

“Such a beautiful animal,” Gnybaro said, admiring the strange stag that strolled proudly through the hidden glen.

“Don’t even look at it,” Mavnor, the druid, said.

“Why not? It is a marvelous creature,” the thief said in wonder.

“You will grow to covet those beautiful golden antlers and then there will be trouble for us all,” the druid replied gruffly.

With a cry Mavnor knocked the bow and arrow from Koram’s hand.

“Didn’t you hear what I was telling the other imbecile?” the druid asked, enraged.

“Yeah, sure,” Koram answered, a bit put out. “But he wanted the antlers. I am just hungry.”

The elaphos khrysokeros are a rare type of sleek, golden antlered, bronze hoofed deer, said to be protected by the gods themselves. While it is unlucky to covet the horns of these creatures, killing one and not eating the meat will bring a curse down upon the slayer of the creature: the killer of the golden antlered deer will be -3 on ALL rolls until he or she has appeased the gods, usually by making a great sacrifice or taking on a quest for the gods.

Those who take the antlers of these creatures will find that each antler weighs as much as 600 gold pieces.
