A fantastical 5E bestiary of fey and undead!

A good game can never have enough monsters, and the Coldwood Codex brings you 10 brand-new creatures suitable for use in any 5th Edition campaign, especially if your heroes are wandering in search of their fortune through the cold, desolate woods of the northern wilds. These creatures add a delightful bit of novel menace equally split between fey spirits bursting with the raw and wild energies of life and vile undead seething with the power of death. Drawing upon real-world folklore, classic fantasy tropes, and the design skills of the top creative minds in the business, the Coldwood Codex is an indispensable addition to any GM's monster toolkit. This product includes not only full-page color player-friendly handout portraits but also foldable paper miniatures for every creature!

Future installments of the Beasts of Legend series will continue introducing richly detailed monsters carefully tailored to specific campaign themes, like the wintry menaces Boreal Bestiary, the pitiless creations of the Construct Codex, and the wide-ranging Asian adversaries in Beasts of the East! Wwe hope you enjoy using it as much as we enjoyed making it, and that you’ll keep coming back again and again to Make Your Game Legendary!

Fiendish Fun


Disclosure: I received a review copy of this product.

The Coldwood Codex for 5th edition is an excellent addition of monsters, not only for bringing up the number of available Fey and Undead, but also for being inventive, covering a spectrum of challenge ratings, and presenting everything through amazing illustrations.

The monsters in the codex are truly creative, either drawing from lore and myth that have not been explored before, or inventing new concepts that are similarly innovative.

From undead druids to dark fey lords, this book does a great job of presenting monsters that feel like monsters; evil and motivated to get in the way of your players. They also benefit from a well developed grasp of the 5th edition system, making full use of the intricate monster creation rules while also presenting unique and interesting abilities that help them stand out even more.

Ultimately, I would give this product 5 stars and my stamp of approval. You would be hard pressed not to want to include these monsters in your game, and even a slight reskinning could result in some memorable encounters over a wide range of challenge ratings. If this is the caliber of monster design for Legendary Games, I can only anticipate with eager wonder a more thorough bestiary down the line.
