I have a question. I've been looking for a monster manual or monster compendium to use with Scarlet Heroes. Any recommendations or suggestions?

Find one of those OSR conversion documents online and use any OSR type monsters. Labyrinth Lord (that's what Scarlet Heroes is technically written for, right?) and other OSR games are so close mechanically that they're almost interchangeable as is.

AC is about the only thing that really needs adjusting

Thanks for your prompt answer +Kenneth Moore ! I've found the monsters from Basic Fantasy's Basic Field Guide work by converting the AC!

B/X Essentials Monsters is newly released (I'm waiting on the print version). Here's the free version or the PDF is on DTRPG http://www.drivethrurpg.com/m/product/246039

The Swords & Wizardry Monster Book is good, there's a CC1 Creature Compendium (by the d30 Companion guy), and of course the AD&D Monster Manual and Fiend Folio. They're all fairly compatible.

Another good free one is "CDD #1 Statblock Reference". It's for 1e I think, but again, pretty much compatible. If you have the Rules Cyclopedia, I think there is an appendix for converting to/from AD&D, but such info is also freely available elsewhere.

Ooh! Kellri's stuff is awesome! CDD#4 is very handy for old-school style games as well. (see under downloads)
