takes us on a trip through the design process of the new Monster
Manual, from early stages of creature development to
the final versions you will see in the finished book. Skip shows
us never-before-published excerpts from early editions of the manuscript,
with his exclusive commentary to illustrate how the designers caused
familiar monsters to evolve to their current forms. These excerpts
include a peek at both early and final stages of the ankheg, beholder,
blink dog, carrion crawler, and djinni.
