Published by First Edition Society.
Monsters of Myth is a supplement featuring a multitude of new creatures for use in your fantasy roleplaying games. Ultimately, about 140 creatures will appear in the finished product based on the extensive table of contents featured in the preview.
Monsters of Myth is presented in the classic style of older monster supplements with two columns per page that are fully justified in each column. The layout is clean with proper spacing making for easy reading. The first few pages of Monsters of Myth are dedicated to the table of contents and the explanation of the various monster statistical terms you’ll find throughout the supplement. As expected, this material is dry (as it should be), but describes well the various abbreviations, and their relevance to game mechanics.

Monsters of Myth is an important book. Besides being packed with 128 pages of new monsters for use with, as it says on its back cover, “First Edition-compatible games,” it is in many ways emblematic of the possibilities and pitfalls that lay before the old school gaming community in general and the retro-clone movement in particular. Produced under the auspices of the First Edition Society, Monsters of Myth is an anthology edited by Stuart Marshall and Matt Finch. Those names are significant, as they are the two principals behind the creation of OSRIC, a restatement of the underlying rules of a certain old school fantasy game from the 1970s and 80s. The involvement of Marshall and Finch thus makes Monsters of Myth as close to an “official” OSRIC product as any currently available and thus gives some insight into exactly how they intended OSRIC to be used.
