    As with many or most late-era 2e books, the problem here is not so much that the book is bad, or even unnecessary, as it is that the attempt to waste time and pad out the pages is so very transparent. Time and again the beholder eye-powers are repeated in full, unvaryingly, for every beholder NPC. Time and again we read a small variation on the sentence "Fighting an XX is similar to combating a standard beholder." First-level MU spell that prevents beholder skin from hardening after death? Check! Details on the fact that Forgotten Realms beholders are slightly larger than normal, while Greyhawk beholders are normal sized, but with smaller eyestalks? Check! Heavily photoshopped pieces of parchment with a cursive font lazily splashed across it to convey nuggets like "The older and more established a beholder's lair, the more disorienting it will be to humans"? Check! NPC stats that are reproduced from beholder-themed modules you can buy? Check! There are enough fun ideas here to make a nifty five-page Dragon article, but it had to be a book, so most of the book is just treading water. The economy with which original D&D rules were presented appears more and more remarkable the more supplements you read.
