Cover/Jacket Text:
A bestiary of epic proportions!
Encounter dragons, sprites, gorgons, sabertooth tigers, and foes of all stripes, spots, and scales. Even the leviathan is not too big for this comprehensive bestiary!

Inside you’ll find hundreds of animals, monsters, and races. Many are culled from myth, others are staples of fantasy fiction and games, and many more are completely original – unlike anything you have ever seen in a role playing game before!
Creatures & Monsters provides:
Over 200 pages of animals, monsters, and races that fly, swim, and terrorize the land – with detailed information on appearance, lifestyle, combat statistics, and background.
Animals and monsters of varying dipositions, from those that characters may protect and befriend to those that threaten the existence of entire towns.
Dragons, fell beasts, elementals, constructs, planar creatures, shapechangers, undead, prehistoric animals, dangerous plants, giants, trolls, fairy folk, and more.
Guidelines for how to create your own Rolemaster creatures.
Extensensive random encounter tables regarding water sources, terrain, vegetation, special features, and power.
