- Throne of Salt: Dungeon Hobo Slang
- From the Sorcerer's Skull: The World of the Glass Harmonica: “It has been argued before, that Barbara Ninde Byfield’s 1967 “Lexicon of the Fantastical,” The Glass Harmonica (republished in 1973 as The Book of the Weird) was an influence on D&D. It’s easy to understand why, given Byfield’s atmospheric illustration and whimsical prose. While it would certainly be a variant, more fairytalish world, I think you could do a lot worse than basing a campaign on the details from the book.”
- Medieval Bestiaries: Alphabetical List: A list of monsters with descriptions from various Bestiaries.
- Mutation Apocalypse: Meditating on Medieval Bestiaries: An interesting take on medieval bestiaries. It’s great because it skips all the obvious entries and the entries it has summarize the beast in a sentence or two plus a picture. Great skimming for inspiration, all in one page.
