This tome contains alphabetical listings of monsters designed for use with the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons game system. Each creature is described and most are illustrated for easy identification.

For Example:

BERBALANG FREQUENCY: Very rare NO. APPEARING: 1 ARMOUR CLASS: 6 MOVE: 6“/24” HIT DICE: 1+1 % IN LAIR: See below TREASURE TYPE: D NO. OF ATTACKS: 3 DAMAGE/ATTACK: 1-4/1-4/1-6 SPECIAL ATTAKCS: Nil SPECIAL DEFENCES: Nil MAGIC RESISTANCE: Standard INTELLIGENCE: Very ALIGNMENT: Chaotic Evil SIZE: M PSIONIC ABILITY: Nil Attack/Defence Modes: Nil LEVEL/X.P. VALUE: III/65 + 2 per hit point

The berbalang spends the greater part of each month in an apparently dormant state, hibernating preferably in a well-hidden cave. Though seemingly comatose, the berbalang is actually roaming the Astral Plane where it spends its time hunting creatures weaker than itself…

Using the new encounter tables contained herein, this work is sure to add new excitement to any AD&D game.
