From publisher blurb:
Life, in its abundance, never ceases to amaze. Even here, miles from sunlight, in a realm bereft of green plants and nourishing rains, nature thrives. Tiny, luminous fungi flourish in the footprints of a ravening brath. Mystic kezmarin frolic amid crystal chasms, while the massive golshuda ravages dwarven strongholds.

This tome, the first in a series of guidebooks by the legendary Wanderers Guild, is a collection of essays and expositions by renowned Minesweeper Bessimus Camfor. Bessimus draws upon the experience and wisdom gained by decades of exploration and danger to bring this comprehensive guide to life. Here you will find detailed narrative and remarkable depictions of dozens of subterranean beasts and the realms in which they thrive.
Beautifully designed and illustrated by celebrated Guild illuminator Andy Hopp and translated from Bessimus' original manuscripts by master scribe Jon Pollom, this d20 monster manual is the foundation of a legacy designed to edify, inform, and equip generations of explorers who would venture into the unlit realms of earth and stone.
