Summary Of Content[edit]

Not much now, but the archived site contains some interesting nuggets of information about past history, including much on Grendels and grenorns.

History Of Website[edit]

The Creatures Information Exchange (orignally Creatures Exchange) was one of a number of websites I started whilst at university. I discovered the 'game' when watching a rolling video on a magazine cover CD (an early FMV!) - I brought it on the day of it's release.

I was heavily involved in the early days of the 'scene' and even managed to exchange a few emails about Creatures with the late Douglas Adams. I coined the name grenorn, but the creation of the cross-breed was nothing more than me mucking around with data files.

I now work on the internet full-time and still intend, one day, to update the site. You can visit my other projects at http://www.notbbc.co.uk/
