Drake Birnbaum –
This book has an immense amount of interesting monsters for both high-level and low-level play. As someone who primarily runs one-shots due to a busy schedule, I love the variety of unique abilities this book introduces in encounters from levels 1-6.
In addition, the artwork is phenomenal.
However, my favorite aspect of this book is the sheer imagination of many of the foes. Their unique physiology and backgrounds are a source of inspiration for new plotlines. I primarily run homebrew games, so finding new source material is very helpful.
