TSR 2102 - MC1 - Monstrous Compendium Volume One (1989)Edit

This was the initial volume in the Monstrous Compendium series, for the second edition of the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons game, published in 1989. Most of the monsters for Volume One were taken from previous first edition AD&D books; the monster entries were greatly expanded and in most cases each monster now filled an entire page and had an all-new illustration. The Monstrous Compendium series consisted of a pack of 5-hole punched loose-leaf pages rather than an actual book, designed to be arranged to the player's preference. Volume One of the Monstrous Compendium was packaged in a box, which contained the pack of monster sheets as well as a binder intended to store the sheets for Volumes One, Two, and Three. The pack consisted of 144 pages, unnumbered, and included a "How To Use This Book" page, with an alphabetical index to Volume One on the back, 4 pages of monster summoning and random encounter charts, and a blank monster sheet to be photocopied, with the remainder consisting of the monster descriptions. Also included were 8 full-page illustrations on heavier card stock.

TSR 2140 - Monstrous Manual (1993)Edit

The Monstrous Manual was printed after the completion of the loose-leaf Monstrous Compendium series, in 1993. This book was "created in response to the many requests to gather monsters into a single, durable volume which would be convenient to carry." The Monstrous Manual compiled all of the monsters from Monstrous Compendium Volumes One and Two, as well as many creatures from subsequent volumes, and revised and updated the entries; however, some entries were condensed from previous Monstrous Compendium entries. The book is 384 pages; pages 3-4 contain the "How To Use This Book" section, pages 5-374 contain the monster descriptions, page 375 contains the instructions for the blank monster form and 376 is the blank monster form itself, pages 377-379 contain various monster summoning tables and randomly generated encounters involving non-player characters, and pages 380-384 contain an index for the book.

This bestiary was planned for use with the Birthright campaign setting for the second edition of the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons game.

The supplement focuses mainly on monsters of the Shadow World, the fictional dark twin dimension of the setting's world. It contains a page with a table of content, a 10-page introduction with explanation of the monster statistics and special rules for the Shadow World, a part with the descriptions of the fictional monsters that also includes tips for their us in a roleplaying campaign, two roleplaying adventures and a 4-page appendix that lists monsters from other sources fitting into the Shadow World.
