Currently up for crowdfunding on Kickstarter is an interesting looking bestiary, from Cawood Publishing, for 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons. Monsters of the City: Sins & Virtues promises 100 new creatures as well as plenty of additional info of great use to DMs everywhere. The project is past the halfway funding point and you can reserve a copy of the tome in PDF for a $16.00 pledge or grab the physical book for a $29.00 pledge through February 12th. Expected delivery is this November.
7 sins, 7 virtues, and 7 districts in the city! Now it’s time to choose a side! This book will contain 100 new 5E monsters (approximately 130 pages). A district page with additional lore and tables will begin each section. There will also be encounter tables, adventure hooks, GM advice, events tables, locations tables, CR and creature type listings, and more.
Each district will contain two legendary monsters that represent one of the sins and one of the virtues (see below). Monsters in the book include devils, demons, celestials, fey, undead, constructs, oozes, giants, and many humanoids. In fact, three new races of humanoids will be introduced. The book is softcover to begin with, and there is a stretch goal for a hardcover version.
