Out of the Darkness and Into the Light
The grist, or true gargoyle, is a rock-like creature that resembles a gargoyle, but it is considerably larger and much more fearsome. Grists were created by the Exalted One. Grists are semi-intelligent and thus able to follow only the simplest of instructions. It is unknown how many grists the mage created, but several dozen are believed to exist. He termed his creation “true gargoyles,” as they fit his vision of what a gargoyle should be.Its skin looks like the exterior of the stone building or rocky mountainside it attaches itself to, and its dense rock make-up causes the grist to weigh between one and three tons.
A grist can effortlessly cling to the sides of buildings and rocky mountainsides. It can only bond itself to stone, brick, or rock. When in place, the grist looks like an unmovable statue of a stone gargoyle that is part of the building.
