I bought the PDF a while back and I liked it so much that I purchased the softcover; recently out of some OCD need to have my monster books somewhat resemble my AD&D Monster Manual is size and format I've been considering ordering the hardcover version (along with the hardcover versions of Monsters of Myth and Malevolent and Benign, both of which I own the PDF and softcover versions... ...there's also albums that I own in cassette tape, CD and vinyl LP format as well, I'm a real piece of work).
EDIT: Although the Swords & Wizardry Monster Book is sorely lacking in MORALE SCORES and HOARD CLASS; I know they're not S&W rules but come on people, Morale Scores are absolutely crucial for fair DMing!
EDIT II: And as J Random pointed out, NO. APPEARING should be included in the revised edition as well.
It's a good thing that I didn't because I came across This on the Swords & Wizardry Forum:
"I have been putting my re-writes of the monsters into my draft of the S&W Monster Book, and the urge is coming upon me to get illustrations and new monsters, and upgrade the book. Not a second volume, but an upgrade (the cost of the bigger, complete book would not be measurably more than buying a second volume, so might as well do a combined one for convenience). We'd do basically what we did for the first printing, a group project of monster-writing. I might even be able to get contributions from one or two of the D&D celebs that I've hung out with a lot at NTRPGCon. No guarantees on that, but I think a couple of people might be persuaded to chip in a monster or two.I'm pretty jazzed about this bit of news; I'll be able to get my titty-grabbers on a bigger, badder hardcover version of the S&W MB and this is a great opportunity for all of the talented artists and monster-makers out there in OSR land to get their work in an awesome book.
Has it been long enough since the initial release of the monster book for this not to piss off people who bought the first one? Keep in mind that a second volume would cost only slightly less than what I'm thinking of doing here. I think. I haven't run the numbers on the lulu calculators, yet, but that's what I'm assuming. The key here is getting more illustrations, too...
... the S&W Monster Book, only with a new set of monsters to be generated the way we did last time, with people posting their monsters on the board, group comments, me editing, and so forth, and also getting more illustrations (the paucity of illustrations in the monster book is its big flaw). This would be a Mythmere deal, not a Frog God deal, so it would be done through lulu."
Also, if you don't LOVE this song you're a fucking asshole ;)
