But it almost alwys features a half-crazy martial artist called Monkey and in many visual media he is depicted as an anthro monkey with a staff. This is different of course as it is a yeti but the similarites are still there.
Yup, he does remind me a lot of the Monkey King character from "Journey to the West." Also known as Sun Wukong, he's an inspiration for characters in a LOT of Asian literature. Even manga like Dragonball Z or Naruto pull heavily from the Journey to the West characters and situations.
In this case, I was struggling to get the right "Look" for my Yeti because I didn't want him to look like a big, bulky Ape since the stats really focused on agility and speed. We already have a big strength-based character or two, you see, and wanted our Yeti to be a little different.
After a while, hitting on the monkey king style of kung fu concept clicked for me, and here we go.
Hoping that Jack likes it...
