Zack: "Just for fun I'm going to draw this monster with my off hand!"
Steve: My mom makes these giant batches of Christmas cookies every year and one of her cookie cutter mold things looks almost exactly like this. I think it's supposed to be a Reindeer.
Zack: Basilisk the Hissing Reindeer, is not so widely known, and if you ever saw him, you would literally turn to stone.
Steve: He would probably look even tougher with some yellow buttercream piping.
Zack: Maybe some of those horrible little silver ball candies.
Steve: I just realized something. The monster part of this has absolutely no order. I mean it looks like they sort of put some jellies and slimes and stuff together, but the rest of it is completely random.
Zack: "We've got everything from 'Y' to 'H', which just happen to be right next to each other."
Steve: This is also a good example of that bullshit Gygax pulls where he just says "Yo, we covered all this in CHAINMAIL, see you jerks later!"

Zack Parsons, Steve "Malak" Sumner, and friends tackle bizarre role playing game products that make them wonder, "What the fuck!?" From the early days of Gygax to contemporary role playing games, none will be spared.
