TSR did something a bit confusing back in 1989, and can cause headaches in online buying/selling today.
They’d made a conscious break in eschewing a hardcover monster manual for AD&D 2e, in favor of a Monstrous Compendium binder.
It did mean a lot of MC Appendix releases. Lots of accessories to name. And so a sheets pack got the same name as the second three ring binder in the MC series.
The Monstrous Compendium Volume Two sheets (TSR 2103: The other half of classic AD&D monsters began in the first binder) are an entirely different accessory than the Volume Two binder (TSR 2105: Dragonlance Appendix).
Reference site page for the Monstrous Compendium documenting releases.
I have a nice Volume Two Binder in the shop today, thought I’d document it here at the blog, illustrate the confusing nomenclature, then realized the MC reference site page needed a lot of work, and – hoo-boy – down that rabbit hole I fell…
Since the beginning, I had the various campaign world MC sheet pack entries with their respective web pages (Dark Sun, Spelljammer, etc.). But I realized today that the MC series needed to be seen as a whole.
There are way more Monstrous Compendium releases than I’d imagined. Probably missed one or two.
Here are some photos of the Volume Two Binder!
