Default Grim Misadventure #71: Act 4 Monstrosities

Grim Misadventures returns with a sneak peek at upcoming monsters! For those eagerly awaiting the release of Build 25 and all of its Faction improvements, better hold on to your seats as the build will go live later today!

In today’s Misadventure we have a sampling from the deepest pit of despair: the Art team. Feast your eyes upon the brutal beasties that await you in the snowy Asterkarn Mountains and the Necropolis beyond.

Chillmane Yeti

Every ecosystem has its apex predator, and the Asterkarn Mountains are no different. The Chillmane Yeti is a brute of a beast, towering over mere humans at over 12 feet tall. Their thick hides and dense fur shields them from the freezing cold of the mountains, but it is their claws and curved horns that keep other beasts at bay.

Highly-intelligent, the Chillmane rarely hunt alone, preferring to surround their prey in small groups before brutally mauling or goring it to death. Finding a lone Chillmane should grant no solace however, as a solitary Yeti is indicative of a deranged and wild specimen so far gone that it can no longer integrate with its pack. These individuals present the gravest danger to travelers through the Asterkarn Mountains.


Horror stories are told of men and women who had tasted human flesh and found themselves transformed into ghastly terrors focused only on finding their next meal. Human intelligence gives way to voracious animal-like instincts and the individual becomes little more than a mindless beast, a shadow of its former self.

These creatures quickly learn though that there are easier ways to feasts on humans than to hunt down living breathing morsels that fight back, and so they often find themselves in graveyards and tombs. After feeding on necrotic flesh for years, they begin to change physically until there is nothing left of their humanity. They become lanky, their skin an unhealthy tinge of grey covered with sores; their eyes glow a sickly yellow, attuned to the darkness of the crypt; and their saliva is filled with rot and disease. There are even rumors that a Ghoul’s bite will transform a healthy individual into another Ghoul, though more often than not the victim will come down with intense fever and vomiting.

Treasure hunters digging up old tombs should be wary of Ghouls infesting the burial sites, ever hungry for flesh.

Both the Chillmane Yeti and the Ghoul await you in the areas beyond Act 3. Are you prepared for these new challenges?

Like knowing what is coming up next for Grim Dawn? Check back on 05/25/2015 for our regular development updates!
