The book you are holding in your hands is the ultimate Mazes & Minotaurs bestiary.
The Creature Compendium gives you the fully Revised game stats of more than 200 creatures (no, we didn’t have the courage to count them all !), including all your old favorites from the original 1972 M&M rules, Men & Monsters and (of course) the Hekatoteratos, as well as many creatures from the Creature Compendium column of Griffin magazine and some new, never-before published monsters!
But that’s not all. Every creature described in these pages has its own illustration - something that had never been done before, which makes this book something of a world première (well, as far as RPG bestiaries are concerned). No longer will you have to wonder about the appearance of the Acteon, the Ichtyocentaur, the Chimera or the Quinotaur (not to mention the Bucentaur or the Catoblepas). This is 1987 and roleplaying game has come a long way since its humble beginnings, back in 1972.
