    D&D: Open Graves

    This book features all of the creatures of the night that would help Dungeon Masters create thier campaigns. It is good book to help set up a Ravenloft game where the world is saturated with the living dead.

    A worthy re-interpretation of Libre Mortis

    A worthy 4th edition update of the dnd 3.5 Libre Mortis. It includes lots of monsters, npc villians, sample adventures, a worthy purchase for those who've upgraded to 4th edition dnd. I particulary enjoy the stats of classic dnd villians like, Acerack, Kas, Straud Von Zarovich their inclusion was a big point for my liking of the book. Quite a few new templates,and excellent information overall. This is my first review so hope it was helpful.

    Excellent supplement for new Dungeon Masters

    I purchased this book about 2 months ago, and it has really helped me design my first D&D campaign. There is plenty of interesting backstory to read, and some small sample adventures to get you going! The monsters in here are varied and provide amazing inspiration for unique encounters.

    A note: there is almost nothing in here for non-DMs, though.
