About this item


About the Book

"The 'Monster Manual' presents a horde of classic Dungeons & Dragons creatures, including dragons, giants, mind flayers, and beholders--a monstrous feast for Dungeon Masters ready to challenge their players and populate their adventures. The monsters contained herein are culled from the D&D game's illustrious history, with easy-to-use game statistics and thrilling stories to feed your imagination"--Page 4 of cover.

Book Synopsis

Fill your Dungeons & Dragons games with deadly monsters from the Monster Manual.

The Monster Manual teaches you how to how to fill your Dungeons & Dragons games with monsters--how to populate the game with pesky goblins and mighty dragons for players to battle or beguile, outwit or outrun.

Inside the Monster Manual you'll find more than 150 classic D&D creatures, with vivid illustrations and rich descriptions to help breathe life into your zombies and liches.

"...What if I told you about the best book of monsters ever? The 5E Monster Manual just might be the one..."--Ed Grabianowski, io9.Gizmodo.com

"D&D acolytes are everywhere...Tech workers from Silicon Valley to Brooklyn have long-running campaigns, and the showrunners and the novelist behind 'Game of Thrones' have all been Dungeon Masters."--Neima Jahromi, The New Yorker

- The Monster Manual is one of the three main Dungeons & Dragons books, along with the Player's Handbook and the Dungeon Master's Guide. It's an essential resource for Dungeon Masters to use in populating any type of challenge they might contrive for their players.

- From an angel's wingspan to the vacant eyes of a zombie beholder, the Monster Manual includes more than 150 creatures illustrated in vivid color, with more than 400 quick reference tables to help you bring them to life with ease.

- Rich descriptions of each monster help trigger your imagination. From the familiar ("vampires hate sunlight") to the arcane ("what color is the vapor from a gorgon's nose?"), the Monster Manual helps inspire your decisions and keep the game flowing smoothly.

- In Dungeons & Dragons, you and your friends coauthor your own legend. Guided by a Dungeon Master, you create characters and play their roles in a story, rolling dice and navigating maps as you unfold a tale as limitless as your imagination.

- Dungeons & Dragons is the world's greatest roleplaying game. Created in 1974, D&D transformed gaming culture by blending traditional fantasy with miniatures and wargaming.

Been playing D&D since the 90's, and decided to take a break when 4th ed was released. This has a lot of new monsters as well as some old classics, but with the new rules implemented. Art work is top notch as always and the paper quality is IMO not as good as 3rd ed ( paper seems a bit thin and fragile to me at least). Very happy with this purchase.

Well, you probably aren't reading this unless you already have the 5th Edition D&D Player's Handbook, or the starter set, so let's cut to the chase. What you have here is 350 pages of not only the classic monsters such as goblins and orcs, but also A to Z organized ideas for angels, beholders, chimeras, dragons, giants, lycanthropes, mind flayers, owlbears, sphinxes, troglodytes, yugoloths, and more. You also get more animals (giant octopus, giant scorpion, etc) and NPCs (knights, nobles, thugs, mages, etc). Oh, and the art is top notch (see the gnoll pictured on page 163). With this and the Player's Handbook there's really years worth of entertainment to be had, if you have the know how to use them. Highly recommended.
