A Core Game Book for Keepers.

Back Cover Text

We are not alone. The universe teems with life. We name them Outer Gods, Elder Gods, Great Old Ones, Avatars, Sevitor[sic] Races, Independent Races, and they are all either malevolent or uncaring.

This monstrous collection is a compendium of creatures, drawn together from fiction spanning over seventy years and from over ten years of Call of Cthulhu scenarios. Learn the secrets of the monsters of the mythos.

Parts of this book were originally published as Ye Booke of Monstres I and Ye Booke of Monstres II.

Comments / Trivia

Dedication: This volume is dedicated to Fred Behrendt and Gary Sumpter, two fellow explorers of the Dark. Any casual observer seeing the three of us as we drove back from NecronomiCon 3rd Editition last summer would surely have thought us insane! "Right! Get my truncheon!"
