What time is it D&D fans? It's time to get excited! A brand new hardcover Dungeons and Dragons book is scheduled to be released on May 29, 2018, and from what we know so far it's going to be a doozy.
Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes
On Friday, Wizards of the Coast announced the latest expansion of Dungeons and Dragons 5E: Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes. Like previous releases, this latest tome will be part rule book and part lore book. Written from the perspective of Mordenkainen, an esteemed wizard from the world of Greyhawk, Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes will focus on the multiverse and new monsters.
As mentioned above, the book's announced release date is May 29, 2018. Here's a few other details that will get gamers excited:
- Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes will be a hardcover release
- The book will be 256 pages
- Content will focus on the D&D multiverse and new monsters
- There will be a regular and variant cover for collectors.
Here's the Wizards of the Coast official description for Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes to help whet our appetites:
This tome is built on the writings of the renowned wizard from the world of Greyhawk, gathered over a lifetime of research and scholarship. In his travels to other realms and other planes of existence, he has made many friends, and has risked his life an equal number of times, to amass the knowledge contained herein. In addition to Mordenkainen's musings on the endless wars of the multiverse, the book contains game statistics for dozens of monsters: new demons and devils, several varieties of elves and duergar, and a vast array of other creatures from throughout the planes of existence.
As excited as I was for Xanathar's Guide To Everything, I'm more psyched for Mordenkainen’s . I'm hoping this latest book will open up new adventures and stories based in legendary Greyhawk, one of the earliest D&D campaign settings. Fingers crossed!
Until next time fellow travelers! Happy adventuring!
