"Go to the sign of Harvel's Axe, a dubious inn on the edge of the Thieves Quarter, in the City of Greyhawk, and look to your own wrist. If you perceive a bracelet and dangling dice, watch for the next throw in the war between Law and Chaos and be prepared to follow the compelling geas." -Signal

Creatures Bestiary - Chivalry & Sorcery 3e

This is the "Monster Manual" for the third edition of Chivalry and Sorcery. It was released in 1997 and was offered in a softcover and hardcover edition. I recall buying this and the core rulebook shortly after they were released. I did not buy them new though. I seem to recall that they were an eBay purchase.I had fond memories of the old C&S from back in the day. This is the softcover version of the book and I would at some point like to upgrade to the hardcover just for durability reasons. The book itself is a bit of a mixed bag. Overall it is good and worth owning but the book seems to have the feel of one written by many different authors and then packaged together with not attempt to make it uniform overall. The high points are really high but on the plus side the low points are not low at all just not up to the high points.

Condensed blurb from the back of the book:

This book contains all the Creatures and Monsters you'll ever need to play Chivalry & Sorcery 3rd edition!... An indispensable aid to any Game Master, as well as a great reference material for players. The Chivalry and Sorcery Creatures Bestiary is a tremendous supplement jam-packed with information. Oh, and a word of warning, "Beware the Trolls"!
