We are near the end of the original Classic Monsters print run, but we don't want the book to pass into the archives. Help us keep Classic Monsters in print and Join the Fray!
Monsters abound. They litter the halls of our collective games like so much debris; wandering monsters, laired beasts, plane walkers, horrid thoughts that linger upon the edge of our imagination. As any gamer of any stripe knows, you can never have too many creatures, for these are the grist for the mill that is our game.
The early days of gaming saw some of the most classic and amazing creatures; weird beasties derived from the minds of people influenced by a genre of fiction that was in its prime, when fantasy truly meant the fantastic. Castles & Crusades has touched upon them from time to time, but by and large they have remained in the background. Until now.
Kim Hartsfield, long-time veteran of classic gaming, brings many of these monsters back to life.
