"During your travels through Gallowmere, you will collect many items. To see your items, or to use one, review your inventory.

In it, you will also find your Book of Gallowmere, which will keep a record of the denizens you've encountered, and bestow you with keen insights that only a disembodied voice could provide."
― A book in Dan's Crypt, explaining how to access the Book of Gallowmere.

The Book of Gallowmere was a record of all Gallowmere inhabitants encountered by Sir Daniel Fortesque in 1386.


"Enemies causing you trouble? Check out the Book of Gallowmere. It may not help you in combat, but you can learn their embarrassing secrets."
― Loading screen hint.

The book contains information about the denizens of Gallowmere; the friendlies, enemies, and bosses Dan has encountered. An entry is obtained after first interacting with a denizen. This ranges from talking to defeating them in battle.


Main article: Transcript of the Book of Gallowmere

Four entries are available from the start:


Sir Daniel Fortesque

Our bone-headed protagonist, born again into this Age of Wonders! In life he was just the worst: a coward, a cheat, a philatelist (or was it a philanderer... I don't recall). But either way, he seems to have woken up... different?

Perhaps he can redeem himself? Zarok should be more careful where he aims his dark magic.

Morten the Earthworm

Morten was so happy when Dan died. Surely, he initially had a lot of housework to do, but now he's got the place to himself, and just how he likes it.

Of course, Dan coming back to life was a bit of a shock, but Morten will do anything he can to keep his home-buddy safe (and get him back to the earthy darkness as quickly as possible).

Information Gargoyles

Can you imagine how boring it would be to be a sentient being - wise even - and be stuck permanently to a brick wall? No wonder these guys are grumpy.

They pass time by eavesdropping, gossiping, and bad-mouthing any bizarre looking adventurers that might pass by.



It is said that Zarok's preoccupation with necromancy stems from an obsession to resurrect his childhood puppy.

Let's just reflect for a moment: isn't that just tragic? All this poor, troubled soul has ever wanted is to command the forces of darkness, enslave mankind, and play ball one last time with dear old Mr Snuffy.

Behind the scenes


There is no equivalent item in the original MediEvil. However, there was a similar bestiary in MediEvil: Resurrection in the form of An Adventurer's Guide to Monsters, a book that can be accessed from Dan's Crypt.

In a PlayStation Underground video comparing the original Asylum Grounds level and the remade one, Nick Accordino revealed that the book's entries were written with input from Chris Sorrell, the original game's director and producer.[1]
