Here you go, D&D fans. Some weekend reading for you. Make sure your game, or your DM's leadership, isn't getting stale. Authors The Wizards RPG Team promise Volo's Guide to Monsters is much more than another monster manual. Though it does examine some of the most iconic monsters in the Forgotten Realms, this guide also pits loremaster Volothamp Geddarm, and his recollections, against the Sage of Shadowdale, Elminster, and his versions of both the common and most obscure creatures in Dungeons & Dragons history.

In addition to the Volothamp-Elminster academic faceoff on the lore behind popular and iconic D&D monsters, Volo's Guide to Monsters includes dozens of new monsters in this fifth edition, along with new playable races for building characters to fit stories in your existing game. Some highlights:

  • The Kraken Society and their schemes.
  • The origin of the froghemoth.
  • How to avoid getting sucked into the reproductive cycle of the vargouille.
