The book is packed with all manner of new foes for you to face off against but it comes with a twist!
“The esteemed loremaster Volothamp Geddarm is back and he’s written a fantastical dissertation, covering some of the most iconic monsters in the Forgotten Realms. Unfortunately, the Sage of Shadowdale himself, Elminster, doesn’t believe Volo gets some of the important details quite right.
Don’t miss out as Volo and Elminster square off (academically speaking of course) to illuminate the uninitiated on creatures both common and obscure. Uncover the machinations of the mysterious Kraken Society, what is the origin of the bizarre froghemoth, or how to avoid participating in the ghastly reproductive cycle of the grotesque vargouille.”
It’s rather awesome that you you’ll be reading through their competing theories as you dive into the book, almost giving it a living quality as you open up the tome and look through its pages to find out what monsters dwell in the dark places of the world.
There is also a Hobby Store Variant of the book…
This is available from bookstores as well as the likes of Amazon and Barnes & Noble for those looking to get a rather eerie looking tome.
We think this is rather brilliant and it would be nice to crack this open to expand the menagerie of monsters available for our campaigns.
Will you be diving inside?
