Classic Monsters and Treasures

Post by Treebore »

Mine finally arrived today. Unfortunately I didn't get any of the mis printed ones a few weeks back. :(

The fact that they used the same paper stock they use for the full color books makes me wish this was full color that much more. :(

Oh well, at least the cover fits in with the rest of the newest printings.

Now to check out the new content.
Since its 20,000 I suggest "Captain Nemo" as his title. Beyond the obvious connection, he is one who sails on his own terms and ignores those he doesn't agree with...confident in his journey and goals.

I'm interested to hear your thoughts on it. Not sure how I missed this one, but it looks good.

Its pretty much the same content as the previous book. The most useful is probably Indexes A, B and C, that gives us the monsters from the M&T, M&T of A, as well as Classic Monsters. Plus there is about 5 to 6 new pages of magic items.

Is the magic just old stuff added, or is there anything new?

Did TLG change the name of the book to CM&T rather than CM?

I don't think so, but perhaps they should have since they added some treasure to it.

They did. "& Treasure" is now on the cover and spine. Likely due to all the magic items now in it in Appendix D.

Ah, OK. My scenario sounds much better, though.

Speaking of drinks, when we were up in Phoenix, at the 5th and Wine restaurant, I discovered a drink they have. It tastes exactly like a Root Beer float. It was very, very good!

I assume classic treasures are things like dagger +1. Or, are they more things based on myths?

Just curious because I do not want to repeat what has been done already when I finish Myths Reborn.

Was it a adult rbf?

I make them . . alcoholic root beer, vanilla bean ice cream and Jerry's spiced rum. A sugar bomb, yes - but fantastic! :)

Yes, Root Beer flavored Vodka, etc... no actual Root Beer or ice cream, just alcohol and liqueurs.

Edit: still a sugar bomb too.

They make something like that around here. Not sure what is in it, because it's not Jamison, but I know people that drink it.

Armor of Kavacha, Babr-e Bayan, Mantle of the Persian hero Rostam, The Club of Dagda, Dragons Teeth, Fruit of the Lotus Tree, The Lady of the Lakes Gift, Lancelot's Ring, Mean of Sttingr, Raudskinna ( a dark tome), all of which are on just the first page, with 5 more pages, with four of those being dedicated to Artifacts.

Btw, did the Trolls stick with the excellent cover from the 1st print?

[Originally used for LA More Beasts of Lejend, I believe], but a fabulous piece of color art!!!

Thanks.
