List of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd edition monsters


This is the list of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd edition monsters, an important element of that role-playing game.[1][2][3] This list only includes monsters from official Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition supplements published by TSR, Inc. or Wizards of the Coast, not licensed or unlicensed third party products such as video games or unlicensed Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition manuals.

Monsters in the 2nd edition Advanced Dungeons & DragonsEdit

The second edition of the Dungeons & Dragons game featured both a higher number of books of monsters[4] and more extensive monster descriptions than earlier[1] and later editions, with usually one page in length.[5][6][7][8][9] Next to a description, monster entries in this edition contained standardized sections covering combat, their habit and society, and their role in the eco-system.[5][6]

2nd edition also used a unique format in the form of Monstrous Compendiums of loose sheets that could be collected in a folder, and allowed the combination of monster books together with individual monster pages from boxed sets.[5][9][1] This format was abandoned again in 1993 in favor of bound books.[6][10] In parallel with this change, 2nd edition introduced colored images for each monster, which became standard in later editions of the game.[6][8][11]

Monsters created for the 2nd edition were based on mythologies of various cultures, fantasy literature, and original inventions.[1] They were often updated from earlier editions. 2nd edition also introduced a great number of new creatures.[6][7]

Some types, such as devils and demons, were initially removed by TSR in response to a moral panic promoted by Patricia Pulling's advocacy group Bothered About Dungeons and Dragons (BADD).[12][13][14] These were later reintroduced, sometimes with different names, to avoid complaints.[15]

TSR 2102 – MC1 – Monstrous Compendium Volume One (1989)Edit

TSR 2102 – MC1 – Monstrous Compendium Volume One (1989) – ISBN 0-88038-738-6
This was the initial volume in the Monstrous Compendium series, for the second edition of the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons game, published in 1989. Most of the monsters for Volume One were taken from previous first edition AD&D books; the monster entries were greatly expanded and in most cases each monster now filled an entire page and had an all-new illustration. The Monstrous Compendium series consisted of a pack of 5-hole punched loose-leaf pages rather than an actual book, designed to be arranged to the player's preference. Volume One of the Monstrous Compendium was packaged in a box, which contained the pack of monster sheets as well as a binder intended to store the sheets for Volumes One, Two, and Three. The pack consisted of 144 pages, unnumbered, and included a "How To Use This Book" page, with an alphabetical index to Volume One on the back, four pages of monster summoning and random encounter charts, and a blank monster sheet to be photocopied, with the remainder consisting of the monster descriptions. Also included were eight full-page illustrations on heavier card stock.
  • Note: All monsters from MC1 appeared in the Monstrous Manual (1993), though some had slightly altered headings.

This 96-page soft-bound book contains creatures appearing in various TSR publications (magazines, game accessories, etc.). Unlike the previous annuals, the included monsters are not primarily drawn from the previous year's publications, but span a wide variety of years, possibly because TSR's financial woes resulted in very few products being produced in 1997. Also in a departure from the first three annuals, Volume Four includes a reference to the original appearance of the creature on each page. The Annual also contains a 3-page "How to Use This Book" section, which includes updated tables for the calculation of experience points awarded for defeating various creatures, and a 2-page index.

TSR 3140 – Birthright – Blood Spawn: Creatures of Light and Shadow (2000)Edit

TSR 3140 – Birthright – Blood Spawn: Creatures of Light and Shadow (2000)
This bestiary was planned for use with the Birthright campaign setting for the second edition of the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons game. The Birthright product line was suspended in 1998 before its completion, so Blood Spawn was later published as an 83-page pdf-file and made freely available here.[45] The supplement focused mainly on monsters of the Shadow World, the fictional dark twin dimension of the setting's world. It contained a table of contents, a 10-page introduction with an explanation of the monster statistics and special rules for the Shadow World, descriptions of the fictional monsters which included tips for their use in a roleplaying campaign, two roleplaying adventures and a 4-page appendix listing monsters from other sources fitting into the Shadow World.
