Minotaurs info needed

Hello all,

I love running Minotaurs in DnD but was curious how they are different in Hyperborea? I saw the entry in the bestiary and there is a tidbit under Minotaurios.

What lore do they pull from in Hyperborea? Any recommendations on reading?

There is also the Minotron on p302 that is a bit more info.  I don't see them as being very different on Hyperborea than other sources, yet they do have their own island.  They are very much the greek creature of legend.  I just last Friday finished up an adventure in which I used Female Minotaurs on the Floating Isle of Paradoxon and the Cloud City as allies of the Amazons.  They were guardians of the Queen and classed as berserkers to make them a tad more ferocious!


“How can I wear the harness of toil
And sweat at the daily round,
While in my soul forever
The drums of Pictdom sound?”

The Tiled Labyrinth in the Saving Throw zine fundraiser for Kramer has a great way to handle a minotaur labryinth that is a really great mechanic. No "you are confused" at intersections.


What? Me worry?
