The deal was apparently that the PDF would be updated and then eventually turned into a physical book.Hacklopedia of Beasts II at RPG Geek wrote:This is it, the definitive follow-up work by the esteemed sage Greytar. Within these pages he catalogues a collection of the most varied and interesting creatures that populate the Kingdoms of Kalamar. With the aid of his fellow field researchers, they present this data for all interested readers – be they mercenaries eager to devise effective strategies for combating known foes or magicians seeking to enhance their spellcasting repertoire. Only a foole would travel the realms deprived of this valuable material.
The fruit of years of extensive travel and personal experience, Greytar presents a complete picture of every creature incorporating sketches, personal accounts, known habitats, tracker’s guides, combat tactics and yield data to round out his general observations of the beasts.
Is this book out as a printed book yet?
If not, how much are they waiting for, before it gets published?
Also, what sort of monsters are in Hacklopedia of Beasts II? Are they monsters convereted from earlier editions or new monsters?
If there are any new monsters, is there anything in the new monsters that would be worth retro-converting to 3rd Edition D&D (or 2nd Edition AD&D)?
