Part of a series of written narrative sketches based on cards from the game Gods Unchained. These are just for fun and are not officially tied to Immutable or Gods Unchained in any way.

The Dionysian Bull can be found roaming large vineyards or any place that regularly stores wine. Their sense of smell is attuned to any species of grape or grape product as the grapes and grape leaves are their primary source of food. Bordering on being categorized as a pest, they are extremely hard to get rid of once they have infested an area.

Cream colored fur covers an extremely dense hide that is almost impenetrable with standard weapons. Injuries sustained during fights with other creatures are usually so minor, they heal themselves quickly. Their large horns and confused nature makes them dangerous even though they lack intelligence and coordination.

Being extremely tenacious, a Dionysian Bull will stop at nothing to gore a wine barrel until it cracks open. They can also use their unusually long tongue to lap up liquids from the deepest barrels if necessary. Drunk on wine, totally confused, and virtually unstoppable, these bulls have caused an immeasurable amount of damage across Eucos.

A hide too thick to make anything useful and meat too tough to eat means these beasts aren’t hunted regularly and usually require large spells and wards to clear them from an area. The local government hires exterminators to take care of the worst infestations billing any landowners who don’t deal with the problem themselves.
