JessicaAnn Lillis (jeskalillis) | -7 comments Monsters:

You may venture out into the surrounding regions of the kingdom to fight monsters and hone your combat skills. Killing monsters will let you gain experience and maybe even special items to help you in your travels. Some monsters are common while others are nearing extinction.

Common Monsters
Common monsters exist everywhere in staggering amounts. After you kill one though the others scurry back into their holes for a week. You may either wait a week for them to become hungry and venture out again or bribe them out by using one of your spare books. Unfortunately, books used in this way are eaten and aren't good for anything else.
(view spoiler)
Timed Monsters
Each of these monsters spawn a specific number each week or month. The number will always reset either on Sunday (weekly creatures) or the 1st of the month (monthly creatures). If you do not kill them each time period they wander off and you lose your chance to kill those ones.
(view spoiler)
Uncommon Monsters
Each of these monsters only has a limited population left. After exhausting the remaining population they will be extinct. Since there are so few of these monsters, they stick around each other like glue. Killing one won't scare off the others.

JessicaAnn Lillis (jeskalillis) | -7 comments Rare Monsters

Only one of each of these monsters exist in the world. Killing them will be challenging but will reap great rewards.
