  1. lake

    I will be honest about Dungeons and Dragons 5E ; as a DM

    (and the rare instances where I am a player), even though I

    love the refined combat and sense of development for player

    characters, I have often felt uninspired by the general fare

    that the 5E Monster Manual has offered.

    Sure, it offered all the traditional monsters ; zombies, hags,

    dragons and such, but in my eye, most of the enemies felt

    flat-out boring.

    So when I heard of the opportunity to buy the Tome of Beasts

    by Kobold Press several years ago, I felt it was an opportunity

    that I could not afford to pass up — I desperately needed the

    opportunity to breathe more life into my campaigns and


    And I must profess, I was not disappointed in the slightest.
