Monster Compendium

Post by DacholaEtecoon »

On the old Swords and Wizardry web site there was a word doc of additional monsters. I think these all found their way into the Monstrosities supplement by Frog God Games. I have copy of it, but it is 1.5 MB so I can't attach it. Is there a better way to share it?

Edit:
Here is the link

Welcome! I have the print edition of the old S&W monster book, which I use quite a bit - but I had completely forgotten that it was shared as a word doc years ago, so it would definitely belong here! I think you are correct that the monsters in this book would later be incorporated into Monstrosities.

Best way would be a public share link to a file-sharing service. I may actually have this in my collection of files, so if you don't have a file-sharing account somewhere, I'll look and see if I can find the file and add a link to it here.

Looks good, I can access it. Would you mind editing your first post and putting the link there as well? It will be easier for people to find it. Thanks for this!

Yeah this is a really great resource, despite the lack of art, which never bothered me as I think a lot of the monster appearance is best left to the imagination, or at least the ref.
