The Kilgore Monster

Sean Campbell was a simple fisherman from the tiny island of Kilgore off the Scottish coastline. Fishing was his livelihood, until the day that a monstrous creature began terrorizing the seas and devouring any and all fish in the area. Campbell became determined to slay this beast and bring peace to the waters of Kilgore. Before setting sail for his hunt, Campbell paid a visit to Mac Gregor's Tavern for a last drink and to bid goodbye to his beloved Laura. She was wary of Campbell's hunt, both because she feared for his safety, and because of an old prediction she had once heard that stated: "The monster will bring misery each time it wakes but the village will be doomed if ever it be slain." Campbell didn't believe in this riddle though, and so he soon departed, promising Laura that he would marry her once he returned.

Facing off with the Kilgore Monster.

With a veritable fleet of fellow fisherman by his side, Campbell sailed to the monster's last known location. Dumping a load of fish to act as bait, the fishermen didn't have to wait long for a response, as Jim soon spotted the telltale bubbles of the beast surfacing. As soon as the monster showed its face, Campbell readied his explosive harpoon gun, but another fishermen captain panicked and took the first shot with a regular harpoon, wounding the monster and causing it to thrash about wildly and take down the ship that had fired at it. For hours after, the monster swam above and below the surface of the sea, continually dodging the ships' spears and harpoons. Just as they were about to try and retreat for the night, Campbell readied his explosive harpoon and fired at the monster, scoring a direct hit. The beast flailed about wildly in its death throes, and in its final leap, Campbell saw Laura's warning come true, as it turned out that the island of Kilgore had been built on the enormous monster's back. With its death, the Kilgore Monster and the village of Kilgore sank into the depths of the sea, never to be seen again. Only a handful of villagers managed to survive the cataclysm, among them thankfully being Laura, who Campbell fished out of the water and happily embraced.

The island of Kilgore has since become so totally forgotten over the years that it was as if it never existed in the first place.
