From publisher blurb:
This is it, the definitive work by the esteemed sage Greytar. Within these pages he catalogues a collection of the most varied and interesting creatures that populate the Kingdoms of Kalamar. With the aid of his fellow field researchers, they present this data for all interested readers – be they mercenaries eager to devise effective strategies for combating known foes or magicians seeking to enhance their spellcasting repertoire. Only a foole would travel the realms deprived of this valuable material.
The fruit of years of extensive travel and personal experience, Greytar presents a complete picture of every creature incorporating sketches, personal accounts, known habitats, tracker’s guides, combat tactics and yield data to round out his general observations of the beasts.
