    In case you can read German, I recommend the Malleus Monstrorum 2nd Edition:



    It's a 500 page hardcover full of Mythos entities. What's more, none of the creatures have "standard" monster illustrations like you see them in D&D Monster Manuals. Instead, they have essentially "handouts" - images which seem to be some sort of period illustrations by artists who struggled to make sense of what they saw or heard.

    And each creature entry has an "Intro" and an "Extro" - a short vignette which tells of how some unfortunate person encountered the entry, and another vignette which detailed how other people stumbled upon the fate of the first victim.

    Jürgen, what's the difference between the 2nd and the 1st Edition of this book?

    Awesome thread and timely as I am about to start preparing for a Far Realms based campaign. Many thankks from me as well (and possibly some hate from my players )
