First: Thanks for the video how to create monsters. But I still have some questions:
All following questions exclude the Biest Domain.
Does Monstrous Beast count as faction trait and therefore must be multiplied for higher class monsters or as a class trait and its cost stays the same regardless of the class?
If it is a class trait does it count torwards the maximum class traits?
Does it count as one of your free traits if you create a new faction? Example: A humanoid based monster must use the humanoid class creation section. Whenever you create a new class, you may take 1 class trait without additional costs, so if you want to create a monster, you always have to fill this slot with Monstrous Beast. Any further traits will cost you either additional points or progression points. Is this correct?
If I create a new monster based on an existing monster, do I have to pay progression points for the Monstrous Beast trait again although the existing one already has this trait?
