Welcome to Mythicpedia, the copycat of the original open-source bestiary, Monstropedia.
The mission of Monstropedia is to create the ultimate online media library about monsters, gathering information and documents from the earliest myths onwards to the present day, developing a coherent set of methods to analyse each creature and attaching current theories about their existence.
Sadly, Monstropedia.org seems to have been unavailable since July 2016, Monstrous.com has been down since February 2016, and the webmistress of Mythicpedia is too much of a fantasy geek to let the data go. Mythicpedia will be combing through Archive.org to salvage what's possible of Monstropedia and Monstrous.com, and then attempting to add any new material from there. If you find any fantastical monsters that are not listed here, you are welcome to send me a link to source information.
