Unique Monsters

Complete* browsable, searchable appendix of EVERY monster, sourcebook, manual, and campaign setting in Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition. An ongoing effort to fully catalog and index every monster from AD&D 2nd edition, there is still much work to be done. With missing images, bad unicode characters, and missing information, I have my work cut out for me. The next phase will involve scanning the source data for errors and displaying this on the About page.

Welcome to the Complete Compendium! A work in progress, this compendium seeks to archive and catalogue every monster from Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, 2nd Edition. Not just monsters from the core books, not just from monstrous compendiums. Every. Monster. Across all sources, magazines, and settings. Go to the Index for a full (and redundant) list of monster names and links to their pages, or check out the Catalogue for a more browsable experience.

This website has resurrected the efforts of an another, the creator of, archived by the wayback machine. I coded an extractor for harvesting monster data from all these files and putting it into a database. Read more about my process on the About page.
