The very first thing that happens to your party in Kingdom Death: Monster is that a giant white lion attacks you. What equipment are you bequeathed with to defend against such a behemoth? Naught but a small sharp rock, and some drapery loosely held around your waist.

It is completely possible to suffer a TPK before the game even properly begins. That is how dreary a place this is. And it is marvelous.
