The Newest Addition

I’ve often said that you can never have too many monsters. Until you have too many monsters.

The first two monster books for a game system tend to be excellent, as the best and most iconic monsters are included. The third is sometimes also okay. After that things get a little stretched, with more and more filler monsters to pad out the page count, new additions that just aren’t as good or classic as what came before. Some exist for mechanical reasons, being some loose flavour wrapped around a new monster power. Others are modifications of existing creatures. And others are just plain weird.
