The esteemed loremaster Volothamp Geddarm has written a fantastical dissertation, covering some of the most iconic monsters in the Forgotten Realms. Volo’s Guide to Monsters provides something extra for Dungeon Masters and for experienced players this introduces options for new races including Aasimar, Firbolg, Kenku, Tabaxi and Triton.
Uncover the machinations of the mysterious Kraken Society, what is the origin of the bizarre froghemoth, or how to avoid participating in the ghastly reproductive cycle of the grotesque vargouille. Dungeon Masters and adventurers will get some much-needed guidance as you plan your next venture, traipsing about some dusty old ruin in search of treasure, lore, and let’s not forget ... dangerous creatures whose horns, claws, fangs, heads, or even hides might comfortably adorn the walls of your trophy room. If you survive.
