Mordenkainen Presents: Monsters of the Multiverse, the next monster tome from Wizards of the Coast for the 5th Edition of Dungeons & Dragons, is coming next month. And it’s now available for pre-order here at Amazon. Compiling and updating monsters that originally appeared in Volo’s Guide to Monsters and Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes, this book is a bestiary presenting friends and foes for any D&D campaign.
Here are the specs from Wizards of the Coast for this next volume:
The book also gathers together fantastical peoples from many different worlds. Each of these peoples represents a race option when players create a D&D character, expanding on the choices in the Player’s Handbook. The wizard has faced many of these monsters and peoples on numerous wondrous adventures. Now it’s time for you to venture forth and face these creatures yourself!
- Includes over 250 monsters. Updates to the monsters include making spellcasters easier for Dungeon Masters to run; giving many monsters more damage and resilience; and improving the organization of the stat blocks themselves.
- Includes over 30 playable races. Brings all the game’s setting-agnostic races into one book, complementing the races in the Player’s Handbook.
- A multiverse of lore. Includes updates to monster lore that refocuses the stories on the D&D multiverse, rather than on any particular world.
This volume appears to only be available with the standard style cover. It features the wizard Mordenkainen soaring through the Astral Plane astride a ki-rin—unaware of the astral dreadnought slinking toward them, painted by Grzegorz Rutkowski.
