Ready your weapons and your spells to battle the fiends, dangerous and diabolical, described in this tome.
Learn of the mundane and supernatural perils that prowl the wildernesses of the world, of the mighty denizens of the seas and oceans, and of the winged beasts soaring on the winds above.
Understand the shapechanging Weres, who dwell amongst men, but transform into bloodthirsty beasts by the power of the moon. Marvel at the majesty of the Dragons, paragons of might, magic and cunning, while you covet the fabulous riches of their hoards.
Study closely the powers and vulnerabilities of the Undead if you wish to escape their deadly embrace. Travel to the unearthly planes of Air, Earth, Fire and Water where enigmatic Elementals rule supreme. Finally descend into the very hells of the Abyss where vile demons and cruel demon lords hold court and plot the subjugation of all the worlds.
