The terrified elders are willing to pay adventurers handsomely to find a way to make this second tribute...

Preview of Tome of Beasts: Selang

“Weird, ear-bending harmonies on alien pipes.” Why am I not surprised that Azathoth’s pipers are fey? This monster hates you! Or rather, it loves to bring you pain. (We’re not ready to be a tribute yet!) The selang was designed for mana-blasted wastelands, deep, whispering groves, and stony deserts haunted by ghosts. Ghosts that hate you. And the selang and their pipes are back, as the Tome of Beasts is BACK IN PRINT at...

Preview of Tome of Beasts: Loxoda

There’s a reason why kobold mine entrances are so small. I mean, who wants to get stepped on in their own mine? Is that an ogre? Or an elephant? Yup.

Preview of Tome of Beasts: Rime Worm

Do you know what it’s like to clean up “ice and rotting flesh” from the mines? And nothing ever really gets that smell out. I mean, it just gets in your nose, and you just keep smelling it everywhere you go. Bleccch! As far as guard dogs go, you really can’t beat massive elementals that fling ice and death. And even rime worm grubs are nasty! This  burrowing beastie was updated to 5E for the Tome of Beasts...
