Tome of Beasts II for 5th Edition: 400 New Monsters
Kobold Press is releasing a massive new tome of original 5th Edition monsters for dungeons & keeps: dragons, demons, undead, and far beyond. It's a follow-up to the original Tome of Beasts that's over an inch thick and more than 3 pounds, with full-color illustrations and well laid out pages. For anyone who doesn't own the first Tome of Beasts, here are two sample pages:
Tome of Beasts II will bring 400 new monsters to 5th Edition, from angelic enforcers, sasquatch and shriekbats, to psychic vampires, zombie dragons, and much more. You can get this high-quality, art-heavy, playtest-honed, rules-crunchy volume of 5th Edition monsters in PDF form for $25, or a hardcover book with a PDF for $50.
Supporters at the $25 level and up can submit an original monster design for possible publication, and you have the option to playtest and be included in the credits, so check out the campaign before it ends on Friday, February 21, 2020.
