Dungeons & Dragons: Volo’s Guide to Monsters from Wizards of the Coast available at Gnome Games
The Forgotten Realms are filled with iconic – and dangerous- beasts of all kinds. Volothamp Geddarm has written a fantastical dissertation covering hundreds of creatures! However, the Sage of Shadowdale, Elminster, doesn’t believe Volo got all the important details quite right. The two square off – academically speaking, of course – to shine light on creatures both common and obscure. Whether it’s the origins of the bizarre froghemoth, or details about the classic kobold, this volume provides it all. Volo’s Guide to Monsters has three chapters filled with valuable information.
Chapter 1: Monster Lore – Learn about iconic monsters in greater detail than ever before. What are their behaviors, their dispositions? What are their lairs like, how do they raise their young? This chapter contains information above and beyond what’s in the Monster Manual.
Chapter 2: Character Races – This chapter has more distinctive race options, like goblin, orc, or firbolg. There are 7 new playable races, plus 6 monstrous races, in total.
Chapter 3: Bestiary – Did the Monster Manual not have enough dangerous beasts for you? This chapter provides statistics and lore for nearly 100 monsters that can be used in any campaign, such as the froghemoth, the neogi, and the vargouille.
