[VGtM] Volo's Guide to Monsters

Post by blueace » Fri Oct 14, 2016 4:21 pm

Chapter 1: Monster Lore takes several iconic D&D monsters and provides additional information about their origins, their dispositions and behaviors, and their lairs—above and beyond what is written in the Monster Manual. Dive deep into the story behind D&D’s most popular and iconic monsters, including beholders, mind flayers, and the yuan-ti, as well as classics like orcs, gnolls, and kobolds.

Chapter 2: Character Races presents character races that are some of the more distinctive race options in the D&D multiverse, including the goblin, the orc, and the firbolg.

Chapter 3: Bestiary provides game statistics and lore for nearly one hundred monsters suitable for any D&D campaign. Gain access to rules and story for dozens of monsters new to fifth edition Dungeons & Dragons, such as the froghemoth, the neogi, and the vargouille.

Ça a l'air plutôt sympa. Un mélange de book of lair et un parfum du supplément sur les trolls de RQ version moderne et donc raccourci.
***N ! Pourquoi on a pas droit à une vf officielle!

Il y a un belle brochette de pnjs génériques de CR plus élevés que la plupart de ceux du Monster Manual.
Je trouve que le choix des monstres et pnjs complète à merveille ceux du MM, on a avec les deux la plupart des monstres "classiques" des éditions précédentes et quelques variantes sympa.

ahah, il y a les Xvarts ! Ça me fait bien rire, c'était les troufions en début de jeu dans Baldur's Gate ! On arrivait dans leurs villages et, si on était pas niveau 1, on nettoyait tout ça rapido ! Je suis content de voir que ces gars là ne sont pas disparus !

Et des variantes de mages, c'est pas une idée nulle, tiens, ça, non plus.
