Something Awful on the 1e Monster Manual

Something Awful has a piece on the freakiest monsters from the AD&D 1e Monster Manual!  My favorite is the Hippocampus, also my daughters’ favorite on merry-go-rounds everywhere.  “They differ from a normal seahorse in that they have a long rear body similar to that of a great fish.”  Think about that for a minute.

Part 2 is coming Friday!

  1. Well…to be fair the hippocampus is actually based on a mythological creature. So it’s hardly fair t0 peg that one on TSR.

  2. Read more carefully… What does a normal seahorse look like again?

  3. They differ from a normal seahorse in that no part of them looks like a seahorse!
