Bestiary

Most creatures in the game have either a Blood or Light alignment. Killing creatures of either type earns karma and pushes your Karma Meter toward one extreme. Even more karma can be absorbed by collecting pools left behind when creatures die. Increasing your Karma Meter in either direction unlocks unique Karma Abilities.

Steel creatures are larger, more challenging versions of the game's creatures. They yield no karma when defeated, cannot be set on fire, and do not affect your Karma Meter.
