"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."[1]

The Lantern Hoard which survivors flock to like moths to a flame hides a horrible secret. Deep within the towering pile of lanterns slumbers a terribly powerful being, The Watcher. While in hibernation, the mere presence of The Watcher is enough to keep most monsters at bay, making the Lantern Hoard a safe haven for humans.

However, upon awakening, The Watcher devours every living being nearby before traveling for an eon in search of a new location to hibernate at.


Limited Release resin model, 50mm. Also packaged with the Kingdom Death: Monster core game, plastic.[2]
