Monstrous Compendium



The Magic Encyclopedia Volume One
This Magic Encyclopedia has a seeming unrelated 5-page section, a complete TSR product list... EVERYTHING, not just AD&D. TSR's Lazer Tag game, Marvel Super Heroes, calendars, Boot Hill, you name it, everything published by TSR through 1992 is in the list.

The list is organized by organized by TSR product code, the 4-digit code unless the product had a alphanumeric code assigned. So the Conan RPG is found under its code of 7014 and Slave Pits of the Undercity is found under its code of A1.

I used this list back when I was first creating this website in 2003, when there was very little information available online regarding some of TSR's more esoteric product lines.
-Wayne


"All AD&D game campaigns have one thing in common - treasure. Of course, some campaigns have more treasure than others, but it is the lure of treasure that entices intrepid adventurers of any world away from the warmth and safety of home and hearth and sets them plunging into labyrinthine depths or into the uncharted wilderness to face fearsome beasts.
To an adventurer, the most prized treasure of all is magic. Open this book and you will find a concise listing of every enchanted item ever invented for TSR, Inc.'s fantasy role playing games. The list in Volume One runs from Abacus to Goblet. The listing includes an experience point value and a gold piece sale value for each item. At last, you'll know exactly what every bauble in any hoard is really worth. No need to keep guessing. The listing also identifies the product where the item is described and the page number where you can find it. A complete list of those products (current through December, 1992) is also provided.
Ever wonder what a phylactery is? Do you know what a diadem looks like or how a chaplet is worn? Don't wonder anymore! This book also contains an illustrated description of each kind of item."

The Magic Encyclopedia Volume Two
"Did you ever wonder what a phylactery is? Do you know what the difference between a cloak and a robe is? The Magic Encyclopedia answers these questions with succinct definitions of every type of item found in a magical treasure hoard, and every definition has an illustration.
The list of definitions in Volume Two runs from Goggle to Zwieback, and completes the list begun in Volume One. The listing includes an experience point value and a gold piece sale value for each item. At last, you'll know exactly what every bauble in any hoard is really worth. The listing also identifies the product where the item is described and the page number where you can find it. A complete list of those products (current through December, 1991) is also provided."

Monstrous Compendium

Monstrous Compendium Volume One (MC1)
"What's a fantasy role-playing game without monsters? At the heart of any good AD&D adventure, you'll find great monsters - dragons, giants, trolls, killer oozes, shadows, and who knows what else! This first Monstrous Compendium gives DMs and players 144 5-hole punched pages of new and improved monsters, with all-new illustrations, expanded descriptions, and complete statistical data, all in an easy-to-read, easy to reference format. Players can organize the monsters in this pack, alphabetically, according to when they show up in an adventure, according to monster type, or any other way they see fit. And the binder is large enough to hold additional monster sheets from Monstrous Compenium Volumes Two and Three!"

Monstrous Compendium Volume Two
TSR did something a bit confusing here. The Monstrous Compendium Volume Two sheets (TSR 2103: "More Monsters! Ready to add to your Volume One 3-ring binder!") are not the same as the Volume Two binder (TSR 2105: Creatures from the AD&D Worlds! Ready for play in a 3-ring binder!"). TSR apparently belatedly recognized the problem, and re-labeled the binder with the Dragonlance logo. The Volume 2 sheets are just the second half of the classic monsters began with the Volume 1 binder, numbering 144 pages.
