Those are of course valid sources, and would be handy to use in a complete kitchen-sink style setting. The challenge of this format though, is to take what we've got and see how far it gets us in a particular direction. We haven't decided anything about why the monsters came out of the Himalayas yet, we don't know if any of those other origins would be necessary.

I had a couple of ideas as to why but the thread has already gone in a different direction, so it's interesting to see what will come up instead.
