Monstrous Magic and Ghastly Means



A Fist Full of Magic: Monster Spell Casters and Magical Abilities

When I wrote up FFM I failed to address the issue of Spell Casting Monsters and the magical abilities of various some monsters. I am only going to address the monsters listed in the S&W Complete Rulebook.
