The Medieval-Authentic Bestiary

Lion & Dragon contains a bestiary chapter, which has 40 different entries for creatures (not counting 13 animals and a bunch of entries for human NPCs; and also not counting Demons which have their own section in the "Summoning" rules of the magic chapter, alongside the homunculus and the golem).  Many of these monsters have names that you would see in any number of OSR/D&D monster manuals, but their version in L&D is very different, being based on medieval lore and styling.

But I figured some people  might enjoy having a few more monsters, some of the ones that are more unusual than the standards found in the L&D monster chapter. So today I present to you The Medieval-Authentic Bestiary

In this book you will get 14 more creatures, most of them very unusual, and derived right out of Medieval lore, legend or folklore.

What do you get?

-the Amphisbaena
-the Great Bittern
-the Caladrius
-the Fire Salamander
-the Glaistig
-the Fae Hare
-the Hirocervus
-the Hydrippus
-the deadly Hydros

Each of these comes with a detailed description, history, locations found, the potential uses of the creature (or its corpse), stats (for L&D but easily convertible to any other OSR game), and typical number appearing.

So if you're looking for a few new monsters straight out of myth and legend to use in your campaign, be sure to check out RPGPundit Presents #94: The Medieval-Authentic Bestiary on DTRPG, or from the Precis Intermedia Webstore! Just $2.99!
