I just thought I’d pop in and share a little of progress that we’re having with Sinister. We have about half of the starting monsters done and I thought I’d share one with you here today!
The Aolus is a wild monster, lurking mostly in the jungles of the world. They are relatively small in size and not particularly strong, but can move quicker than just about any creature (besides a Langor). The Aolus appears to be a mutated monkey, but with razor-sharp fangs and a tail three times longer than it’s body which has spines along its back and forearms. This monster is curious to a fault and loves to laugh, often picking their trainers based on a mutual sense of humor. If forced into servitude, they are quite crafty and always looking to escape, even if just for a moment.
