Nemeans are large lions with a strangely tough hide. Although as supple as normal fur, the nemean’s coat gives it armor protection of 150@12. Nemeans roam savannah plains and are never found in cool climates. In melee, a nemean will bite for 2S damage (SN=8). They are skilled and fearless in combat.
Nemean lions are a monster in Legend Quest, but they are an extremely important monster, because their magically tough coat makes the best armor in the game. Unquestionably, we based this monster on the Nemean Lion who was killed by Hercules in the Greek myths. Whenever possible, Legend Quest monsters are based on the original myths and stories, and not on other games’ interpretations of them.
