From publisher blurb:
The Monster Issue
How to Read a Monster Description
It sounds almost insultingly simple. After all, who would place a monster in an adventure without being familiar with its abilities? But by reading a monster’s rulebook description carefully – and reading between the lines a little – it is possible to create encounters that showcase its abilities, challenge your players, and will be remembered for years afterward.

Many of the most enduring and popular monsters in European culture are ones which have been handed down from ancient times via myths. Who does not know about the Centaurs, Cyclopes, Minotaur, Cerberus, Hydra, Manticore, Pegasus, Medusa or the Chimera? Even the Sphinx and Griffon, whilst originally conceived in Egypt and the Near East respectively, were made popular via tales written down by the Greeks. This article will help you create your own monstrosities, in the same vein as ancient Greek myths.
