Great book! Any DM needs it. I was happy to find it at Drive Thru RPG for such a great price. Everything considered it is a must have.

I could not recommend another monster book more. This is a bestiary in the classical style, containing brief descriptions of interesting monsters. The bulk of the monsters are old school oddities like the Caryatid Column. It includes such creatures as the Greater Medusa, gleefully lifted from the original Clash of the Titans movie, and now translated from AD&D into D&D 3.5. While the monsters vary in utility from "pure awesome" to "so peculier it's surprising to see it even in a book such as this" it is almost a certainty this amazing tome will yield at least a few entries that speak to you at some aesthetic level.

The monsters originally included in this volume where those licensed from Wizards because they had no plans to update them, and thanks to the OGL, they made the transition from 3.0 to 3.5 Since that time, some of the monsters have been re-interpreted for 3e. This book is an excellent opportunity to look at more classic treatments of those monsters, in addition to saving you a few bucks looking around for obscure updates scattered across the entire game line.

The fine folks at Paizo saw fit to adopt some of these critters and take them home, and I personally agree. Whether you are a 3e diehard or a Pathfinder convert, I give this book my strongest recommendation.

Tome of Horrors (Revised) should be required reading for any DM, or GM. Classic creatures, solid write-ups, and some spooky Art as well.

With the PDF currently priced at $7.99, if you're a fan of many of the old school monsters that were not updated originally to 3.0 and latter 3.5, this is a solid bang for your buck. The Tome of Horrors is not only a nicely illustrated book containing many demon and devil lords that took forever for WoTC to officially update, but also has a nice round number of new monsters.

Judging by how often the folks at Paizo uses the monsters from here in their own Pathfinder products, that alone should speak volumes of the utility you'll find here. If you're sticking with 3rd edition, Pathfinder or standard, this should be at the top of your list.

If I could, I'd give this one even more stars! Awesome book, and thank you so much for making it available to those of us that can't afford a hardcopy any more. A must have for any DM that loves his monsters :)

Just for the sake of nostalgia, this is one book you need if you want many of the old favorites back in you 3.5 DnD game.

The layout is perfect making the most of the space and giving priority to the best and most challenging creatures. The book itself is massive and full of information for any GM worth his salt and who wants to give his player something different during a game session.

This book is one of the reasons why the advent of the electronic book format is a blessing in this age of revisions, updates and simply just too much books being put out by great many publishers.

I cannot praise it enough. It's a real steal for the price and those who dare open the Tome, will not be sorry about letting its Horror run wild.

Do yourself a favor: get it and put it to good use.

Liked: Everything, some of the artwork is really, really good an all of it is evocative.

Disliked: What's not to like?

Quality: Superb.

Value: Great price/usefulness ratio.

Tome of Horrors is a fantastic book. Lots of monsters that we all grew up with in their squeaky new 3.5 glory. This update (in many respects) is a lot of fun. It is worth it if you have the 3.0 version since many things changed with 3.5 and if I recall some new creatures were added. It is also a great update for the old 1st edition content, some that never made it to 2nd ed.
If you are at all knowledgable about D&D history there are some monsters here that will make you smile (Flumphs, Ubue, vampire roses) or moan. I have all three tomes and this one is the best.
Sure, color art would have been nice, but that is picking nits.

There's a lot of monsters that a lot of people missed and this book gives it to them. This book provides a lot of nostalgia for a lot of long time players as well as providing newer players with challengers they don't know everything about.

The book is well laid out, easy to use, easy to read, and BIG. D20 is all about options and this book provides them.

This product has proved to be one of the most useful resources I have for creating monsters with a twist. While 'they' think they know what's coming, there was a bit of surprise when the giant crocodile cast chain lightning on them.


LIKED: Lots of new monsters that that were not 'silly' (too unrealistic).

DISLIKED: Nothing!

QUALITY: Excellent

VALUE: Very Satisfied

These are the missing creatures from AD&D. Now you don't need to sit there for hours while trying to figure a conversion for those first edition modules and creatures to 3rd edition. You can look them up.

This book is the best "bang" I've ever gotten for my d20 3.5 buck (with possible exception of the core book gift set for $56 on amazon). The "Tome" includes virtually all of the monsters found in the classic first edition hard backs omitted from the 3.5 Monster Manual. If you want to run 3.5 with first edition flare, you should by this pdf. It's a shame Necromancer is folding, but I've read that those guys have an open door to publish for Troll Lord, so maybe we'll see "Tome of Horrors C&C."


LIKED: Well presented; illustrated. Authors credit original designers and publications; good sale price -- $9.95.

DISLIKED: not too much

QUALITY: Excellent

VALUE: Very Satisfied
