Monsters. They're a staple of most RPG games. You've got your adventuring party. They find out about some monster terrorizing the local populace. They go out and fight it. If you're having trouble coming up with monsters for your party to fight, and locations for where they can have said fights, you should check out Fearsome Foes: And Where to Fight Them, a new book for 5th edition up on Kickstarter.
From the campaign:
Moving from the Pathfinder Role Playing Game to 5th Edition Dungeons and Dragons, I was instantly taken in by how streamlined the game was and how much easier it was to run a campaign. Still, after a few sessions of being a 5th edition Dungeon Master, I started to notice a pattern with some of the core game’s monsters. Attack, multi-attack, cast a spell if they were clever… it seemed like the same thing again and again. Many of them were lacking something unique, something that really set them apart from a mechanical stand-point. Fearsome Foes and Where to Fight Them seeks to remedy that - making each and every monster in it a unique and memorable encounter! Every creature is fleshed out and can be handled in a multitude of ways! These creatures have been play-tested by seasoned veterans and new players alike to ensure proper balance in any Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition campaign or one-shot session. Let these Fearsome Foes take your encounters to the next level!
Here's what each book will include:
- 40 monsters from CR 2 to CR 30 for adventurers of all experience levels!
- 10 new spells for creatures and players alike!
- 5 new magic items to entice players and enhance enemies!
- 3 new settings for you and your players to explore and conquer!
The campaign is up and running now. It's set to go for another 44 days.
