Monsters of the Surface
In the untamed corners of Gaeldren, there roam many varieties of dangerous beasts and creatures. These natural “monsters” occur in many different habitats across the surface, but generally stay out of (or, more frequently, are forced out of) civilized lands and kingdoms. Monsters vary greatly in form: from the hyena-like Gnolls of the south-eastern plains of Demistra, to the strange and terrible Manticores of Iktur.
Some of these “monsters” differ little from the more savage “races”, such as Orcs and Goblins, and are included here instead only because they are less common and less likely to integrate in to civilized lands. It should also be noted that not all these creatures should be considered evil.
