D&D General The core monster lineup across all editions


FYI - just did a major update to the core monster spreadsheet, with the following changes:
  • Added extra "other sources" columns for each edition that had more than one core monster book. For example, you can now see where 2e monsters appeared before being in the Monstrous Manual. As much as I could confirm, I also noted MM3 math versions of 4e MM monsters (when not updated in MV).
  • Added columns for 3.0, 3.5, and 5.1 OGL releases (to include the Tome of Horrors series, if confirmed to be based on the official monster).
  • Added a column for the Original Adventures Reincarnated series (when not appearing in an official 5e release).
  • Added appearances of monsters as hazards, diseases, terrain, or magic items.
  • Split some listings (such as bandit vs. brigand, or the various foulspawn).
  • Consolidated some listings (such as shifters and whales).
  • Made various other minor adjustments and corrections.

Thanks again to @Echohawk, whose lists were super helpful here for the 2e and 3e "other sources".
