This supplement expands Old-School Essentials Classic Fantasy with 120 terrifying, weird, and wonderful monsters inspired by the beloved 1970s Advanced 1st Edition rules:

  • Mimics, piercers, shambling mounds, banshees, coffer corpses, terrible eyes, metallic dragons, liches, drow, deep ones, the terrifying tarrasque and many more classic Advanced era monsters!

  • Includes complete encounter tables for dungeon levels 1–8+ and all types of wilderness terrain.

Classic Fantasy vs Advanced Fantasy

Old-School Essentials comes in two flavours: Classic Fantasy (based on the 1981 Basic/Expert rules) and Advanced Fantasy (the same game, massively expanded with content inspired by the 1970s Advanced 1st Edition rules).

This book is a monsters supplement for people who already have Old-School Essentials Classic Fantasy.

Want everything compiled? Check out the Advanced Fantasy Player's Tome and Referee's Tome, which compile the Classic Fantasy game plus this book and other supplements.

Compatibility

The content in this book is 100% compatible with the classic Basic/Expert rules (B/X) and can thus be used with any B/X-based game.

Deluxe Print Edition

A deluxe, sewn-binding hardcover edition of this book is being printed soon and will be available from the Necrotic Gnome publisher website in 2021, along with all of the other books in the Old-School Essentials line.

Note that there is no print-on-demand edition of this book!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
