A bestiary of epic proportions! Inside you will find hundreds of animals, monsters and races. Many are culled from myth, others are staples of fantasy fiction, and many more are completely original - unlike anything you have ever seen in a role playing game before! Creatures & Monsters includes monsters that fly, swim, and terrozie the land. You also find many pages devoted to animals of all types, ranging from those that characters can protect and defend to those that can threaten their very lives.
The RMSS version has 320 pages whereas the RMFRP version only has 208 pages. Most of this space was gained by eliminating the basic statistics that were listed under each individual monster. This was information that was duplicated from the tables at the beginning of each section anyway. If nothing else, it solved the problem for some creatures like the Winged Panther where the information on the chart wasn't the same as the information listed with the creature. After a quick look, it appears that most of the creatures are the same in both books, but I haven't gone through them in a lot of detail.
