The Keeper's Companion vs. Malleus Monstrorum


Recommended Posts

I'm running a Call of Cthulhu campaign using the Secrets of San Francisco source book. I want to incorporate the K'n-yan sorcerers from that book, and I'm wondering if some of the other Cthulhu supplements have more information that fleshes these monsters out more. Eventually, I intend to get both the Keeper's Companion and the Malleus Monstrorum (which I assume to be a bestiary), but I'm wondering which one is more important, so I'm hoping someone can give me some advice on which should be my higher priority.

I just looked through my Malleus Monstrorum and there's about a full page of information about the K'n-yan including origins, history and info on their telepathic, dematerialization abilities and disintegration weapons.

I recommend the Monstrorum just on a general basis because of all the monster and god options it gives you.

Excellent, that's just what i needed to know. Does it also have information on Ithaqua by any chance?

About 600 words on Ithaqua, roughly a column and a half. Not the most extensive write-up (some are extensive indeed!) but seems fairly complete. MM is a great bestiary for BRP.
