This is the "Old School" Monsters Database app. It has 2 indexes, is searchable, can be filtered to only show relevant results and is as easy to use as we could make it. It is designed to be compatible with the 1st and 2nd edition AD&D, OSRIC, Adventures dark and deep, and pretty much any other "Old School" game system you like with minimal modifications.

The point of the project is to collect as many "Monsters" as we can into an android app, make them searchable by level, climate, habitat, so if a GM wants a level 3 to 5 monster, that lives in shallow fresh water, in a temperate climate, he can, in a couple of clicks, get a list to choose from, and hopefully find just the right challenge for what he is working on. Once you have the monster you want, you will have clickable links to all the important stuff associated with that monster.

This app is designed for Android tablets, it will function fine on a phone, especially a larger one, but it looks best on a tablet.

This is an app that is a book that is a database - as monsters are added they will be pushed to all users as an update, likewise if errors are found they can be fixed very quickly. I built it because I wanted it. I would like to share it with you in the hope that we can make it better.

When you are the gamemaster you have enough to do without leafing through several books trying to look up stats for a particular monster, then look up the spells or spell like abilities it has, the monsters it associates with, how many xp's it is worth, what level encounter it is - etc.

Some of you probably use our "Old School RPG Tables" And "Old School Spells" free apps for android, and if you don't, and you play AD&D 1st edition or similar check them out.

I hope that some of you will have some great monsters that you have created that you will want to see in the app. Maybe some old school artwork that you will allow us to use. Anyone whose stuff is used will get a direct hyperlink to their home page from every item used so that if someone says "Wow - that pic is cool!" they can instantly click to your home page to see the rest of your stuff. Of course if you wish to remain anonymous - we will respect that also.

Not bad Good app, but the reliance on the menu button means my note 4 has issues quickly navigating

Mark Cleveland

Great Perfect for an old school DM, or someone (like me) who wants those retired monsters in a newer game without carrying the book around. Could use a zoom feature., but otherwise rocks

Chris Whillock

Brilliant Refusing to move withe times and still using a mix of 1st and 2nd edition AD&D rules, this is a must-have quick reference guide... Thanks ?

Ken Witt

Love it, only needs small fix Definitely needs the option to zoom in and out.

Tyler Muench

Overall good I love how many you have, I only wish it had more pics

Michael Fuller

I will get alot of use out of this! The only thing missing from this app is thaco entry. I love this app. . Can't wait to use this in a game. Good job!

The index is malfunctioning I tryed to use the index to find a creature and it wont let me scroll across. Ill open a section then try to scroll across to the next part and it closes back to the main portion of tge index. On top of that the fact the maximum monster level is only 10 is a joke. This app need ALOT of improvement before I would even give it a 2 star rating.

Lacking to the point of useless Clunky, lacking any style and glitchy. ALL forgivable until you realize how limited and seemingly arbitrary their list of monsters is. No beholder? No carrion crawler? God only knows how many other staples are missing (I didn't bother checking). But don't worry folks they have an entry for mules...

Not bad Good app, but the reliance on the menu button means my note 4 has issues quickly navigating - update (owed ya this 5 star for a while) the fixes are great, and the layout works for both my phone and my tablet. Keep up the great work!

Matthew DeKrey

Good functionality, too many permissions Just added permissions for a new version? No thanks.

Elemental Orgy

Why does it need my identity? Wasn't needed before latest build and no reason for it in release notes. Lost stars for this!!

Oskar Branse-Instone
