Palladium FantasyPalladium Fantasy first debuted in 1983. The rules system, upgraded in this edition, is highly regarded -- Mid-level Heroic Fantasy, with a heavy dose of playable realism.
Palladium Fantasy RPG, 2nd edition
"The Second Edition Palladium Fantasy RPG is a dramatically revised and updated second edition of the original fantasy game rules — the first significant revision since its release in 1983.
The emphasis on the Second Edition will be on making the game better than ever, with clean, entertaining descriptions, exciting concepts, quick playability, and a better presentation of information and ideas.
The end result will be the first step into the bold and dangerous world of high fantasy. A world of magic and conflict. A world dominated by a human civilization built on the bones of the non-humans who reigned before them. A world of unparalleled heroic adventure filled with magic, inhuman creatures and intrigue!
The Palladium World is one of epic fantasy. A world torn in conflict with the non-human barbaric races, creatures of magic and supernatural forces.
Non-Human playing characters provide a host of unusual creatures as regular characters. They include the feared changeling who can assume the shape and appearance of any humanoid. The giant races of troll, ogre and wolfen. The small and agile goblin, kobold, gnome and the mighty dwarf, as well as elf, human, and dozens of “optional” creatures found in both the Palladium RPG and Monsters & Animals.
The skill system embellishes characters with knowledge and abilities that make him or her more than a simple fighter or mage.
Combat is realistic, with strikes, parries, dodges and considerations for shields and armour. Yet it remains extremely quick and playable.
An Experience System in which characters are rewarded for acts of ingenuity, ideas, cunning, discretion, trickery and bravery. Not hack and slash.
Magic: Over 300 spells, plus elemental magic, circles, symbols and runes are yours to command. The most original forms of magic found only in the Palladium RPG are the Diabolist and Summoner. The Diabolist casts no spells, instead he uses the nearly forgotten magic of wards (mystic symbols) and circles of power. The Summoner too, is versed in the mystic arts of magic circle making, but his is a far more dangerous and often malevolent power, for he dares to summon and command creatures of magic.
The wizard, warlock, priest and other more traditional characters also break away from their more common game molds, with a vast array of spells and abilities that make them truly unique."
Monsters and Animals, 1st Edition
The following pages contain an array of monsters and fantastic creatures spawned from existing myths and imagination. Although they are specifically designed for the Palladium Role-Playing Game system, they CAN BE EASILY ADAPTED TO ANY Game System.
For players already familiar with the Palladium FRP game; you'll find the map accompanying each creature an extremely useful guide in determining encounters with a particular beast. Unfortunately, specific "encounter tables" are not provided because a proper and complete set of tables for each kingdom, territory, and terrain for the entire world would fill a third of this book. As it is, you get more monsters for your money. Future books, as done with the Old Ones, will feature a complete kingdom or area containing a wealth of encounter tables and specific data in regard to its lands and creatures found there.
The Animal Section of this book contains a smattering of "real-life" animals for use as less bizarre antagonists, familiars, pets, and color. Special attention has been given to predators and animals often selected as familiars by wizards, witches and druids..."

Monsters and Animals, 2nd Edition
"Monsters & Animals is an excellent sourcebook for the Palladium RPG, Rifts, Heroes Unlimited, and Beyond the Supernatural, or any fantasy game. Most of its 90 monsters are new and original, not the usual fare of typical monsters from myth. Many, like the Bearman, Coyle, Endroth, giant Rahu-man, Ratling, Dwarvling, Lizard Mage, and others, are available as optional player character races. ALL are described in detail and realistically illustrated.
Players of the Palladium RPG will find the Palladium World brought into clearer focus, with much more information about the world overall and the creatures that inhabit it. The conniving Waternix, the ferocious Devil Digger, Bogiemen, Beast Dragon, Rock Crawler, Scorpion Devil, Snaggletooth Gobbler, Serpent Beast, Tri-Fang, Waterbat and Wing Tips, are but a few of the wondrous creatures waiting to fill your campaign.
The second section contains complete stats on nearly 200 real animals, from canine and feline to poisonous snakes and birds of prey. An unrivaled reference adaptable to Palladium or any RPG system.
The Revised Monsters & Animals is an upgraded version of the previous edition. Most notably, the monsters all have “horror factor” stats so that they can be easily transplanted into Beyond the Supernatural or Rifts®. There is also a small section about the horror factor of animals. The biggest change is the reorganization of the animal section, which now lets players find a specific animal quickly. A handful of new monstrous animals have been added too. They include the giant octopus and squid, alligator, saltwater crocodile and others. Cosmetically, the entire book has been re-typeset and a striking new cover completes the face lift."

Much of the area is unexplored forest inhabited by inhuman races not happy to see "human invaders" ravaging their land like hungry locusts. The boom towns of the Eastern Territory also attract bandits, bushwhackers, thieves, assassins, mercenaries and monsters who see the new towns, cities and wilderness colonies as easy pickings, ripe for plunder. Likewise, these new communities represent new places for criminals to establish rackets, thieves' and assassins' guilds, dark cults and rare opportunities for all types of scoundrels.
