Fill your Dungeons & Dragons games with deadly monsters from the Monster Manual.

The Monster Manual teaches you how to how to fill your Dungeons & Dragons games with monsters—how to populate the game with pesky goblins and mighty dragons for players to battle or beguile, outwit or outrun.

Inside the Monster Manual you’ll find more than 150 classic D&D creatures, with vivid illustrations and rich descriptions to help breathe life into your zombies and liches.

“…What if I told you about the best book of monsters ever? The 5E Monster Manual just might be the one...”Ed Grabianowski, io9.Gizmodo.com

D&D acolytes are everywhere...Tech workers from Silicon Valley to Brooklyn have long-running campaigns, and the showrunners and the novelist behind ‘Game of Thrones’ have all been Dungeon Masters.”—Neima Jahromi, The New Yorker

• The Monster Manual is one of the three main Dungeons & Dragons books, along with the Player’s Handbook and the Dungeon Master’s Guide. It’s an essential resource for Dungeon Masters to use in populating any type of challenge they might contrive for their players.

• From an angel’s wingspan to the vacant eyes of a zombie beholder, the Monster Manual includes more than 150 creatures illustrated in vivid color, with more than 400 quick reference tables to help you bring them to life with ease.

• Rich descriptions of each monster help trigger your imagination. From the familiar (“vampires hate sunlight”) to the arcane (“what color is the vapor from a gorgon’s nose?”), the Monster Manual helps inspire your decisions and keep the game flowing smoothly.

• In Dungeons & Dragons, you and your friends coauthor your own legend. Guided by a Dungeon Master, you create characters and play their roles in a story, rolling dice and navigating maps as you unfold a tale as limitless as your imagination.

• Dungeons & Dragons is the world’s greatest roleplaying game. Created in 1974, D&D transformed gaming culture by blending traditional fantasy with miniatures and wargaming.

This edition of the Monster Manual has all of the most common monsters for the D&D game and covers everything from the mundane to the bizarre. Each monster has everything needed to use it effectively, including origins, behaviour, preferred habitat, and tactics. Full-colour illustrations are provided for each type of monster (including variants) and most include black-and-white concept art to provide examples of how differences manifest (for example, two or three examples of eye size and shape). 5th Edition tries to take some of the game's focus off of combat and enough information is given to use monsters in social situations (assuming the monster is intelligent enough to reason with and willing to listen, that is). A handful of creatures are provided with template rules, allowing them to be used as modifications to the core races provided in the Player's Handbook but none are detailed enough to be used independently. Wizards of the Coast has published a complete listing of all the included monsters on their website.
