The first monster is in the revamped bestiary. He’s a scary one: the musician!

Skills: persuade 2 (1), profession (artist) 4 (0)

Concept:A street performer who couldn’t become a rock star after college. He has some skill at swaying people’s opinions, and a knife for those who try to take his tips.
There are 63 monsters slotted for the new bestiary, many of which have types. The musician is an artist-type, which indicates that he’s a character for modern-genre games. The modern monster types have socio-economic themes: worker, soldier, artist, intellectual, and ruler.
Scarier monsters will be appearing, like the unusually-sized rat (level 3), qua-toa mutant (level 5), and the shapeshifting android (level 7).
