The Monster Girl Encyclopedia Series

Monster Girl Encyclopedia I and all monster girl profiles are written from the in-world perspective of a travelling scholar, wandering the MGE world while documenting the various creatures and features he comes across. Since the release of it's initial encyclopedic volume, the MGE franchise has grown to encompass an entire world setting, centered around the on-going conflict between the religious zealots of The Order of the Chief God and the Demon Lord and her monster army.

Monster Girls

See: Monster Girls

Monster girls are what this wiki is widely known for. Monster girls are lewd, female variations of creatures found in the traditional mythologies of various countries, religions, histories, and cultures. Information on each monster girl, like their habitat, diet, and disposition, is dispensed through "profiles", all available here on the wiki. The release schedule of new monster girls varies based on a number of factors like upcoming events and side-projects that occupy the author. Currently[1], new girls are released once every two weeks.

The profiles do not have a specific reading order but it's recommended that readers have basic knowledge of the setting beforehand.

Lore Books

See: Category:Lore Books

Along with profiles, the world of MGE has been expanded through the release of several large lore compendiums. These compendiums feature information about the MGE world including its factions, flora, fauna and culture.
