Monster ENCyclopedia: Tarrasque
  • 31
This is a series of articles about specific monsters from D&D’s history. Each entry takes a look at the origin of one D&D creature, and tracks its appearances and evolution across different...

Monster ENCyclopedia: Scarecrow

  • 11
Look away! Don’t meet its gaze! The scarecrow began as unintelligent creation, animated by evil clerics. As it shambled through the editions, it became a more complex construct. A spirit plucked from the ether by a hag and bound inside a carefully crafted body. After centuries as sentries, some scarecrows even awaken as independent creatures. But no matter which edition’s scarecrow is after you, don’t look into those glowing red eyes... too late! You have already been paralyzed and forced to read this Monster ENCyclopedia entry.

Monster ENCyclopedia: Remorhaz

Monster ENCyclopedia: Remorhaz Thanks Echohawk, I was wondering what would be the R. The only additional titbit I could think of about the Remorhaz was that it featured in an RPGA-supported...

Monster ENCyclopedia: Quickling

  • 16
Don’t blink or you’ll miss this entry in the Monster ENCyclopedia series. Malicious and often murderous, these tiny fey will turn you into a pincushion for their miniature daggers. If you are unlucky, the poison in your wounds will knock you out. This time we’re taking a look at one of D&D’s fastest moving creatures, the quickling.

Monster ENCyclopedia: Peryton

  • 21
Whether they are magical hybrids, alien invaders or creatures warped by a curse, perytons are single minded in their pursuit of their victims. If, as that shape in the sky draws closer, you notice that it casts a humanoid shadow on the ground below, beware! Once a peryton decides it wants to eat your heart, the only way to stop it is to kill it. The peryton has appeared in every edition since AD&D -- join the Monster ENCyclopedia as we take a look at this half-giant eagle, half-stag monstrousity.

D&D General Monster ENCyclopedia: Tomb of Annihilation

  • 22
This Monster ENCyclopedia article has been replaced by expanded individual entries for each of the creatures it covered: Almiraj Eblis Flail Snail Froghemoth Grung Jaculi Kamadan Su-monster Zorbo

Monster ENCyclopedia: Otyugh

  • 15
Thank as always - another great, if disgusting, entry.

Monster ENCyclopedia: Nightmare

  • 19
The nightmare is the steed of choice for all kinds of D&D villains. Black in colour with flaming hooves, it is a highly intelligent creature. As it progressed through editions it gained weight and became more flammable. But is there more to the nightmare than simply being a mount for bad guys? This instalment of the Monster ENCyclopedia takes a closer look at this evil equine to find out.

Monster ENCyclopedia: Myconid

Too awesome, Echohawk. Thanks.

D&D General Monster ENCyclopedia: Flumph

  • 20
This is a series of articles about specific monsters from D&D's history. Each entry takes a look at the origin of one D&D creature, and tracks its appearances and evolution across different editions. As part of an alphabetical browse through a hypothetical Utterly Complete Monster Manual we are picking one monster per letter. The infamous flumph is our choice for the letter "F".​

D&D General Monster ENCyclopedia: Drider

  • 23
This is a series of articles about specific monsters from D&D's history. Each entry takes a look at the origin of one D&D creature, and tracks its appearances and evolution across different editions. This entry looks at a "D" creature with a long and detailed D&D history — the drider.​

  • 38

This entry covers the first creature to appear in any alphabetical listing of the denizens of the worlds of D&D: the aarakocra.​
