Description Edit | History

From the back cover:

What's a fantasy role-playing game without monsters? At the heart of any good AD&D adventure, you'll find great monsters -- dragons, giants, trolls, killer oozes, shadows, and who knows what else! This first Monstrous Compendiium gives DMs and players 144 5-hole punched pages of new and improved monsters, with all-new illustrations, expanded descriptions, and complete statistical data, all in an easy-to-read, easy to reference format. Players can organize the monsters in this pack, alphabetically, according to when they show up in an adventure, according to monster type, or any other way they see fit. And the binder is large enough to hold additional monster sheets from Monstrous Compendium Volumes Two and Three!

More Information Edit | History

There was an errata page published for this for the Vampire that replaced the page in the binder. The easy way to tell which version you have is if on the back page the Eastern Vampire is listed as a separate entry or as part of the original Vampire entry -- the errata page lumps it in with the original entry (probably because the original entry now required more than one page). Not sure where it was first published. It may have been given out by TSR at conventions only (Possibly Origins and GenCon 1989) or included in a subsequent Monstrous Compendium.

Divider list for MC1, top tab to bottom tab:
- Red Dragon and a treasure pile
- Hydra
- Battle scene with ogres(?) and a yellow sky
- Skeleton warrior bashing in a door
- Archer about to take an axe from a skeleton
- Hammer-wielding giant and two warriors
- Dragon breathing
- White creature (a taer or yeti?) and a chap about to draw a sword

This appears to be several distinct Items, however we do not have enough information ourselves to discern which information belongs with which.
