From publisher blurb:
One of the most fascinating regions of our own world is most assuredly Polynesia, a vast triangular area in the Pacific Ocean that encompasses Hawaii, New Zealand, Easter Island, Samoa, and Tahiti. This area is home to numerous creatures and beings that can be readily adapted for use in role-playing games and used either in conjunction with campaigns that have a South Seas flavor or as part of one-off encounters. While they are popularly believed to be primarily tropical in nature, the islands of Polynesia include the full range of other environments, from hot rocky deserts and subtropical grasslands, to temperate forests and snow-capped subarctic mountains, and this is reflected in their diverse inhabitants.
This sourcebook contains descriptions and game stats for more than a dozen monsters from this huge, varied region and notes on existing monsters that might also be encountered within it. It includes both actual creatures, extant and extinct, and those derived from myths, legends, folklore, the reports of explorers, and other sources and is based on my personal adventures and research throughout the islands of Polynesia, notably Oahu, Hawaii, Kauai, Maui, Bora Bora, Moorea, Tahiti, and both main islands of New Zealand.
