Monster Compendium: Monsters of Faerûn is an accessory for the 3rd-edition of Dungeons & Dragons® that was set in the Forgotten Realms.

Mighty heroes deserve wicked foes.

Demons and half-demons, dragons and dragonkin, animated corpses and restless spirits, wielders of magic and eaters of spells: These are the creatures of Faerûn, the monsters of the Forgotten Realms campaign setting.

Monster Compendium: Monsters of Faerûn contains scores of new monsters for use in Dungeons & Dragons adventures. From the aarakocra to the Tyrantfog zombie, these monsters present a whole new range of challenges.

Although usable in any campaign, these monsters are especially suited for the Forgotten Realms setting—a world of great magic, terrible villains, and high adventure.

Description[]

One of the first Forgotten Realms books released as part of 3rd-edition, Monsters of Faerûn features monsters unique to Faerûn. It was the first book to feature the now-common "in the Realms" section for each monster, offering helpful and concise hints to the Dungeon Master as to how and where to incorporate the creature into the campaign setting.
