This 550-page hardcover, spearheaded by Paul Hughes of the Blog of Holding, completely revamps the 5E monsters you already know with new monster math, CR calculations, encounter building rules, variants, and useful tables for each monster such as names, signs, behaviour, lair features, encounters, treasure, and more. Read more about our monster tools.
The Monstrous Menagerie provides nearly 600 monsters, variants, monster templates, and hordes for your Level Up: Advanced 5th Edition game. Populate your game world with classic monsters ranging from the lowly stirge to the terrifying tarrasque, along with new horrors like the khalkos and the phase monster. Challenge even the mightiest adventurers with elite monsters like great wyrm dragons and the Medusa Queen. Use simple templates to create new monsters like zombie sea serpents and merfolk alchemists. Overwhelm opposition with stat blocks representing hordes of guards, skeletons, or demons.
Along with each monster’s game statistics, you’ll find monster behaviour and adventure hooks, treasure, monster names, and more. The Monstrous Menagerie includes guidelines for designing challenging encounters and even building new monsters from scratch.”
