Format: Hardcover
This book contains many of the monsters which did not appear in the WotC MM I and MM II. Some of the monsters in the Tome of Horrors did later appear in the Fiend Folio; however, the monsters were kept more faithful to their 1st edition roots in the Tome of Horrors version.

If you love these old monsters as much as I then this is the book for you. It also has obscure, but clever new monsters which will surprise even the most experienced power-gamer.

It is a bit dated now, being for 3rd edition d20, but errata exists to bring it up to modern usage.

"Tome of Horrors" by Scott Greene, published and distributed by Necromancer Games.

This massive 328 page sourcebook simply contains over 400 monsters for 3rd edition D&D.

The very short introduction has only three pages, a Credits page, a good Table of Contents, and a Preface.

One - The Monsters. There's an entire menangerie of critters, from Adherers to Zombies. Many were adapted from earlier editions of the D&D rules, most from first edition. Altogether, they take up the vast majority of the bulk of this tome. Everything from page 4 to page 285 is creatures. That's 281 pages of crunchy goodness. And almost all of them never appeared in other versions of D&D till much later. There's also a small drawing of each.

Appendix A - Animals. These are just a few ordinary normal animals translated into 3rd edition. There are only nine of these.

Appendix B - Templates. There are only twelve of these, but they give creative GM's 12 different templates to apply to any other creature in the book.

Appendix C - Snakes. This small section gives a list of poisonous snakes and their stats.

Appendix D - Challenge Ratings. Lists all the monsters in the book by Challenge Rating - not alphabetically.

All of the entries have a "credit" section which identifies the original creator and where the creature first appeared. All entries are simply alphabetical, which means, for instance, that you needn't look for "Yellow Musk Zombies" under the letter "Z", but under "Y" for Yellow Musk Zombie. All Giants and Golems are under "G". This is one of a three book set of the Tome of Horrors. I'm not even real sure of where they came up with enough creations to fill two more books, as I think this one is rather complete.

If you are a 3e or Pathfinder DM the Tomb of Horrors is a useful list of critters that you may remember from previous editions that are well thought-out and presented. There is a bit of nostalgia here for old school players who like new school mechanics and there is certainly an old school vibe in the presentation. There are lots of classic monsters that were left out of the "official" products. Its probably not a replacement for the official MM and works better a supplement to it unless your players are jaded and know the MM by heart.

My son wanted this to add to his collection. It fit the bill and was just as expected. Good delivery time. Excellent condition.
