The Beastlord's Hunt was a coming-of-age ritual among the A'Mar, the Human inhabitants of the moon Lamus. It involved young men and women hunting the quasi mythical Beastlord, said to be the "the mightiest of gundarks." One year, the hunt went terribly wrong when the party of eight were attacked by a Brachian Beastlord, a ferocious gundark sub-species.
