The Bestiary - Bard Games
The Bestiary portion of the Atlantean trilogy is another of the books that I have never sued for the system it was written for but it has been well used. The book serves well as a point of reference for other game systems. I recall that the game system itself was one that I wanted to try but was never able to get a group that was interested in playing it over the system du jour. I know there are better uses for a time machine but I really wish there was some way to have gotten this system used when it was new.
From the back of the book:
"Return to the second age of Atlantis to a time wften the race of men was young, and giants still walked the earth... when ancient dragons lay sleeping beneath the ocean waves, and the woods of Avalon and Stonehenge were alive with the haunting songs of the magical Sidhe. Encounter the strange and wondrous inhabitants of a bygone age in the Bestiary.
