So, I could find no mention of these anywhere else, and I thought you all might enjoy them, especially those of you from the 1E and 2E era of D&D. I don't know how many of you out there also visit SomethingAwful.com, so I'm bringing these links to you. Basically two guys who've been playing D&D for a long time dug up some old Monster Manuals and modules, and poke fun at some of the weirder crap in them.

Warning: Not Safe For Work

Dungeons & Dragons: 1st Edition Monster Manual (part 1) (http://www.somethingawful.com/d/dungeons-and-dragons/wtf-monster-manual.php)

Dungeons & Dragons: 1st Edition Monster Manual (part 2) (http://www.somethingawful.com/d/dungeons-and-dragons/monster-manual-wtf.php)

Deities and Demigods, Cthulhu edition (http://www.somethingawful.com/d/dungeons-and-dragons/wtf-deities-demigods.php)

Dungeons & Dragons: Dungeon Module S1 "Tomb of Horrors" (http://www.somethingawful.com/d/dungeons-and-dragons/wtf-tomb-horrors.php)

A break from D&D, the guys turn their sights on Rifts: Core Book (http://www.somethingawful.com/d/dungeons-and-dragons/wtf-dnd-rifts.php)

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons: Monster Manual II (part 1) (http://www.somethingawful.com/d/dungeons-and-dragons/wtf-dnd-modron.php)

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons: Monster Manual II (part 2) (http://www.somethingawful.com/d/dungeons-and-dragons/monster-manual-two.php)

Fiend Folio (http://www.somethingawful.com/d/dungeons-and-dragons/fiend-folio-1.php)

So there ya go, enjoy.

Funny, and oh so true to the title of the articles. Love the Rifts bit, too; it's like a piece of junior high forced its way back to active memory.

Reminds me of the Book of Ratings entries. Actually, there's a fair amount of monster commentary overlap between the two :P
