Chapter One: Monster Concepts and Functions
It gives advice on creating a good concept based upon the function of a creature. Every monster has a concept and a type (such as giant, vermin, etc.), but more than that every monster has a function; the part of the monster that answers the question "What does it do?" It outlines the 20 most common functions such as grappler, caster, disabler, energy attacker and PC killer, and how such functions play out in the game. Under each function, you'll also find a list of the creatures from the SRD as well as creatures from Monster Geographica: Underground that possess that function.
