INDEX: Beyond the Pit

Fighting Fantasy 'Beyond the Pit' is a brand new definitive companion written to primarily present an exciting new guide to the monsters and creatures of the Gamebook series. A bestiary and in-depth guide that will allow Games Masters to frighten their adventurers with a minimum of work, and provide amateur writers with a resource to build even better amateur adventures.

'Beyond the Pit' will present definitive guides to elementals, constructs, the undead and demons, common animals and much more to further deepen your knowledge on the most dangerous and frightening monstrosities of Titan. It will also present for the first time, exclusive categorised detailed guides to the most popular creatures from the Fighting Fantasy series.

On the following alphabetical links above you will find details on a great many fearsome creatures and beings that inhabit the savage lands of Titan and the many surrounding planes. You are free to use these creatures in all of your own amateur Fighting Fantasy adventures as a solo player, or GamesMaster of Fighting Fantasy. Introductory Role-playing Game and Advanced Fighting Fantasy Games Masters may adapt them to surprise players in new adventures designed by their own very quill. Every entry that follows is described in two sections – one lists the statistics for the creatures as ease of reference, while the other consists of a colourful description detailing as much as possible about the creatures itself and its special features. The first section as seen below, presents and lists a common set of categories that describe each of the creatures’ abilities. Please read the following guide on how the Fighting Fantasy creatures are listed:
