This is a fascinating book, and far more than the 'monster manual' most role-playing games provide. These creatures are all part of a defined ecology, and fit together as naturally as do the animals and plants we are familiar with here on Earth. It includes a wilderness-based scenario in which players have the opportunity to get to know some of the native creatures, as well as information on survival in Poseidon's unique environment, more adventure hooks and notes on how the scientific exploration and cataloguing of Poseidon's flora and fauna is progressing.
Publisher's blurb: "More than 100 years after the first human colonists arrived on Poseidon, the waterworld is still an untamed frontier. Lesser whites and pseudoeels lurk beneath the waves and niņos muertos stalk the jungle, and colonists in the wilderness find themselves locked in a deadly and alien food chain. From the planet's savage ecology to the monstrous cyclonic storms that circle the globe, surviving in Poseidon's outback is a challenge for even the most veteran frontiersman."
