Gods, Demi-Gods & Heroes[edit]

As far as I know, this is the only pre-1E book that I did not cover already. If you want to add the template to this book and move it to the main list, feel free!  :)

TSR 2006 - Dungeons & Dragons Supplement IV: Gods, Demi-Gods & Heroes (1976)[edit]

Numerous monsters scattered throughout, such as Minions of Set, Sphinx, Fire snake, Winged serpent, Phonex (Phoenix), Cyclopes, Satyrs, Einheriar, Kraken, and Spirits of the air

I love the table format of this list. much more sharper and reader friendly then a long string of bullets. kudos.

Hey, thanks. :) Hope you find it useful! BOZ (talk) 02:52, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Missing monsters[edit]

Okay, so lets see what monsters aren't on this list and try to complete it:

  1. Some "mundane" creatures from the white box (mentioned above).
  2. Creatures from Gods, Demi-gods & Heroes and Swords & Spells, if any.
  3. Any creatures from early issues of The Strategic Review and/or Dragon.

Possible move[edit]

Should this be moved to List of Original Dungeons & Dragons monsters? Having two of the lists be year-based is kind of strange when the rest are by edition. -Drilnoth (talk) 20:23, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

I only called it by years because I wasn't sure what the "official" name of the edition was. BOZ (talk) 00:11, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
I don't think that there is an "official" name, although I usually hear it referred to as "Original Dungeons & Dragons". I was also thinking that the 1977-1999 list could be renamed "Basic". -Drilnoth (talk) 00:13, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, those are the commonly used names. I thought about using them but decided against it. I have no reason to oppose a move though, unless someone else does. :) BOZ (talk) 00:18, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
How about "original edition" D&D monsters instead? As-is is misleading. BOZ (talk) 00:49, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
That would be better. -Drilnoth (talk) 01:24, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
