I've started working on a conversion of AD&D Monster Manual II to be compatibile with Magic World!
This is a slow, arduous project but I'm converting about 10 critters a day, with some neat fan art and some of the old School art as well. Currently on the letter B, alphabetically...

Had a hic-up in the conversions and had to redo some characteristics so I'm behind by a couple days. :(
I'm currently on the Daemons and should start truckin full throttle today. I'm also noticing a lack of fan art for a lot of manual II critters. Guess they aren't as popular as MM1 beasties.
Congrats to the team on the new layout here!

Woohoo! More than half way done!
Forgot how many weird -slash- really weird critters were in this book...
I wonder if some werent including just to pad the numbers...

Anyway I also just got The Magic Book and Enlightened Magic in the mail so I may be pausing conversions for a day or two while i devour these. :)

Oh Im with ya! I want them all as well! I'm on the S's and hauling butt. I just hope these make it easier for future chroiclers to run games.

I heard tell there's a monster book in the works for Magic World as well. I would highly recommend getting this when it's released as Im sure it will be miles better than these! :)

These guys have  a way of keeping critters more true to myth and legend than D&D did.

Done with the conversions! *Phew*
I'm rearranging some illustrations, changing some of the art, making the format prettier, and proof reading as I go.
Just a few more days and I'll probably release.
Honestly can't wait to be done with this one. LOL

I've been able to get a lot done last couple of days. Done with art and about 1/2 way through proof reading. Another day or two at most!

Thanks so much for making these!
Sometime soon I'm hoping to run a bizarre 'Dungeon Crawl Classics' inspired setting, so all the weird monsters will come in handy.

My own group is very into dungeon crawling right now so I get ya.
There is NO LACK of weird critters in Manual II!
Re-reading all of these descriptions after so many years has inspired a lot of neat ideas for my campaign and possibly a couple new Side-Treks for the Downloads section...

This is amazing! Thank you so much for this! I'll certainly use it for the occasional foray back into dungeon crawling and for inspiration for my campaigns. Your work is much appreciated.

This book has some freaky critters, but a LOT of inspiration hidden inside. Have fun!
