[Kobold Press] Tome of Beasts 2 Kickstarter Launched!


5th Edition (And Beyond)

Liberty's Edge

Expand Your Game with New Demons & Dragons!

From the creators of the original Tome of Beasts! Kobold Press is wrangling a new horde of wildly original, often lethal, and highly entertaining 5E-compatible monsters to challenge new players and veterans alike.

The Tome of Beasts II will bring 400 new monsters to 5th edition, from angelic enforcers, sasquatch and shriekbats, to psychic vampires, zombie dragons, and so much more.

In addition to these lethal creatures to spring on players, if you back the Tome of Beasts II Kickstarter at the $25 level and up you can submit an original monster design for possible publication! The original Tome of Beasts published 40 such backer monsters, including some extremely popular creations!

Along with the Tome of Beasts II hardcover volume and PDFs, this Kickstarter will fund the creation of monster pawns, VTT versions for Roll20 and Fantasy Grounds, monster lairs with beautiful maps, and more!

Back TOME OF BEASTS 2 on Kickstarter Today!

Yeow! Funded in the first hour!!

Very nice!!!! Requests:
• focus on unusual abilities, attacks and reactions. Don’t need the same old attacks and HP absorbers.
• increase the size of the NPC section in the back. I would prefer a book dedicated to NPCs, but until one exists these appendixes are helpful.

I’ll definitely be backing this. I’ll also, once again, submit a monster, that I’m sure will fail to get published (if that’s a thing for this one).

Good points all - noted!

Backers can indeed submit a monster! See the third paragraph :)

Since you guys don't support Pathfinder any more, I am only interested in the pawns. This means I have to wait for the backerkit to grab the pawns as an add-on. I'm not interested in a book with stats that I can never use.

Hey there, totally OK! The pawns are great!

A point of order though, Kobold Press hasn't released a Pathfinder 2e product ... yet :) That doesn't mean we aren't going to though!

I'll let you in on a little secret ... :

The Kobolds and a certain Richard Pett are working on something pretty awesome for Pathfinder 2E ... if all the planets align, it just might be ready in time for PaizoCon :)
