8 pages - mini comic
This book includes two main characters from other stories. Ani has a rather in-depth description, which you can read elsewhere. Muninn (as a Lich) is described as he appears within this script, but for the background that will make him make sense there's a document that explains it all.
Ani - See http://thedeathlings.com/artists/ - Ani is a thin young Deathling with patchwork scarring and stitches. She has long spiky hair and dark eyes. She wears a thick heavy patchwork cloak that seems to move on its own.

Short Comic Script © 2010 Ian Struckhoff
Summary - The story of how Athena and Poseidon competed for the patronage of Athens, by offering gifts. Poseidon creats a well, and then the horse, and almost makes a threat. Athena offers one gift, the olive tree-- which can be used for food, fuel, timber, and more. The people of Athens, and the Olmpians, chose Athena, bringing a legacy of wisdom and strategy, but eternal problems with water supply.
Athena - Goddess of Wisdom and War
Also known as Minerva, Pallas, Athena Parthenos, Athena Panhellenios, etc.

THE CLOAK NAMED BLUE
A fairly mysterious figure, simultaneously enigmatic and cartoonish. Bright garish blue, and entirely made out fo fabric, but with a clear connection to the undead-killing Deathlings.

Summary - A Deathling, The Nameless Cowboy, breaks into a series of apartments in the City of Fog, looking for something. Once he discovers the right place, he leads a group of refugees there-- and we see that he chose it as a safe place well-stocked with cigars, whiskey, water, and a bit of food. (Cowboys and Zombies!)

The Man with No Name - (TMWNN in this script) - A Deathling who used to be a cowboy. He's gruff, unshaven, and scarred. He doesn't have a name, but he does have guns.
The Undead - Hordes of zombies and other undead. They range from the recently-dead, to the horrifically rotting, to skeletons. Can also include undead fantasy creatures, vampires, wraiths, etc.-- but only rarely if at all in this story.
