More Monster, More Problems


The Monster Manual contains dozens of real world animals, everything from swarms of rats to six redundant pages of dinosaurs, and each is assigned statistics and given descriptions of their habits and behavior.

Steve: Well a giant one. Imagine how much acid that would be.

Zack: Slugs can't spit acid at a person!

Steve: Maybe if it thought you were a bird.
