Tome of Beasts

From 1d4chan

The Tomes of Beasts are a series of Monster Manuals for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition written and published by Kobold Press. Whilst officially setting neutral, all of the creatures entered in these books have an official presence in the Midgard setting, and often include small sidebars addressing lore specific to that setting.

Quality is all over the place, and not just because many of the first ones were clearly built and designed with 3.X/Pathfinder sensibilities in mind rather than 5e design principles.

Currently, there are three books in the series; the Tome of Beasts, the Tome of Beasts II, and the Creature Codex, which despite its different name is officially a "Tome of Beasts 1.5", with a number of monsters that expand upon entries seen in the first Tome of Beasts.

Tome of Beasts[edit]

Bagiennik: A strange aberration that looks like a mass of wood, moss and fungus in the form of a hideous mockery of a man, oozing oily black slime from its nostril slits. Spends most of its time bathing in springs, rivers and marshes, but randomly wanders out to do either good (healing the injured and sick) or mischief (ranting like a maniac and attacking anybody it sees with jets of acid and ripping claws).

Cavelight Moss: Carnivorous moss that uses bioluminescence to lure living creatures in range of its strength-sapping tendrils so it can kill and devour them.

Chelicerae: Aberrations that resemble giant ogre spiders with humanoid intelligence. They hunt wizards above all else, because though they have a natural ability to cast spells, they can only replace spent mana by siphoning mana and/or life-force from living creatures, and spellcasters are the most efficient "batteries".
