    Sigh... Too bad...

    I was really disappointed when I got my copy of this book. 2/3 of the monsters in here are nothing but hybrids ('This monster has a cows head and a hippo's body' 'This monster has a Hippo's head and a cow's body' etc)and really boring stuff. Althought there were a couple of cool creatures now and then (Dragons section comes to mind) they were completely bogged down by the generic creatures everywhere. IF you really need new monsters for your adventure, and you don't have enough criativity (what are you doing playing RPGs, then?) then get this book. Otherwise, just save your money
