Old Gnawbone. Iymrith. The Axe Mother. Daurgothoth. The Dark Lady. Tiamat. These are names (or nicknames) of ancient dragons with long, infamous histories in the Forgotten Realms, and they’re all included in Wyrms of the Realms, a large, 150+ page supplement that includes over 30 named dragons, along with unique new mythic traits and actions for even more epic battles.

How do you make a Halloween-themed monster supplement for D&D 5e when so many of the appropriate creatures already exist in the official Monster Manual? Ghouls, zombies, skeletons, vampires, scarecrows, crawling claws, mummies, and all manner of demons and devils.

13 Horrors of Halloween draws inspiration from classic monster movies, cultural folklore, and the holiday itself to provide another seasonal monster supplement from the Holidanger crew.

With a title like Ravings of the Mad Leper, I expect dark, evil, and madness-inspired content. Disappointingly, the 79-page player-focused supplement provides nearly two dozen subclasses without any kind of shared theme. Each class is given one to five new subclass options, and some I certainly liked more than others.

The 2004 film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind plants an intriguing twist on the romantic comedy, by exploring the human mind through past memories. The Orb of Goodbyes doesn’t go nearly that far, but does feature an interesting little dungeon crawl based on experiencing scary, sad, or harrowing memories that others have chosen to forget.

April Fool’s Day isn’t exactly a beloved holiday; most of us actually dread the influx of cruel pranks and corporate marketing gags. But for D&D it provides a treasure in the form of 10 Foolish Foes, a jokester-themed monster supplement from the “Holidanger” team that brought us 12 Christmas Slays, 10 Monsters of Midsummer, and 10 Hazards of Love.

Monster Manual Expanded III is, shockingly, the third book in the Monster Manual Expanded series, adding another several hundred new statblocks to D&D 5e. Some are expanded variants of existing monsters such as bugbears, driders, giants, and dragons, along with several entirely new monstrosities — now accompanied by breathtaking, professional original art for nearly every badass beast.

The creative team behind last year’s 12 Christmas Slays (as well as February’s 10 Hazards of Love and April’s 10 Foolish Fools) have returned with 10 Monsters of Midsummer, a summer-themed monster book with sandcastle crabs, barbecue golems, and the most fearsome of foes, The Sun.

I love the Monster Hunter videogame series (and you bet your butt I backed Heliana’s Guide to Monster Hunting) where you can craft weapons and armor from defeated creatures. But what about harvesting monster parts to cook a hearty meal?

The Monster Menu adds over 100 exotic meals that a daring party can cook from slain monster parts, gaining temporary monstrous abilities — and drawbacks.

A sorcerer’s power is drawn from their origin. Whereas wizards study their craft and warlocks make a pact with a powerful entity, sorcerers are simply born with magic power due to their magical (or monstrous) bloodline, and drawn from their own willpower.

Blackstaff’s Book of Bloodlines is the follow-up to last year’s Tome of Wizardry, this time focusing on those naturally talented jerks, the sorcerers. With over 30 subclasses and over 120 spells, Book of Bloodlines is another stellar supplement brimming with content.
