Kobold Press is following up the fantastic successes of the Tome of Beasts and Creature Codex with an all new 5E bestiary featuring 400 monsters. That’s right! The Tome of Beasts 2 will be jam packed with baddies and beasties (plus some good inclined creatures as well) to unleash at your gaming table. Currently the Tome of Beasts 2 is past the 500% funding goal and you can score the supplement, as well as the encounters book, in PDF for a $35.00 pledge or get both physical books for a $75.00 pledge through February 21st. Expected delivery is this November.
From Kobold Press:
From the creators of the original Tome of Beasts! Kobold Press is wrangling a new horde of wildly original, often lethal, and highly entertaining 5E-compatible monsters to challenge new players and veterans alike.
The Tome of Beasts II will bring 400 new monsters to 5th edition, from angelic enforcers, sasquatch and shriekbats, to psychic vampires, zombie dragons, and so much more. All Tome of Beasts II Kickstarter backers at the $25 level and up can submit an original monster design for possible publication.
In addition to the Tome of Beasts II hardcover volume and PDFs, this Kickstarter will fund the creation of monster pawns, VTT versions, monster lairs with beautiful maps, and more!
We Kobolds love to make bestiaries and monster books! However, it takes time and funds to create a high-quality, art-heavy, playtest-honed, rules-crunchy volume of 5th edition monsters—and printing a product of this size calls for some financial clout. We’re Kickstarting it to make sure we have the funding necessary for a small, medium, large, huge, or even gargantuan print run, as required.
With your support, we expect to deliver a big hardcover book, a juicy and useful PDF, and plenty of extras! Thanks to our prior outings with the original Tome of Beasts and the Creature Codex, we have a seasoned team of skilled 5E monster designers and testers, so you can expect even more innovation and fresh ideas to challenge your players, no matter their level.
The Tome of Beasts II Lairs book provides quick, one-map encounters with creatures from the Tome of Beasts 2! Playable as standalones, each lair describes a mini-adventure with hazards, terrain maps, adventure hooks, and more to showcase the Kobold Press creatures (and some standard ones too).
