740 Monster List!

Blair over at Planet Algol has done a very cool little table or in his own words - 740+ Monster OSR Dungeon Encounter Tables
Designed for use with the Dungeon Random Monster Level Determination Matrix on page 174 of the 1st edition Dungeon Masters Guise and the Monster Sub-Table Matrix on page 163 of OSRIC.


The OSR Dungeon Encounter Matrices reference material from the following:
Advanced Edition Companion
Deadly Distractions 
Labyrinth Lord
Malevolent and Benign
Monsters of Myth
Realms of Crawling Chaos 
Swords & Wizardry Monster Book
Tome of Horrors Complete 
Varlets and Vermin

Note that all of the above, aside from CarcosaMalevolent and Benign,Realms of Crawling Chaos and Tome of Horrors Complete, are available in legitimate free PDF form.

This is a preliminary version; I still need to properly cross-reference with sources in Advanced Edition Companion, Labyrinth Lord and OSRIC.

EDIT: And I just caught the duplicate Sphinx and Sphinx, Sphinx entries on the 6th & 7th level tables.
I'm just spreading the word & have printed this out for my own personal use! Pretty damn awesome job if you ask me! 


  1. Somehow I missed this. Thanks for the heads up.

  2. No problem,its damn awesome work that Blair did. I think its very useful. I'm simply spreading the word..
