Kobold Press found a hit with its D&D Fifth Edition supplement Tome of Beasts, and now a sequel book is on the way. Kobold has launched a Kickstarer for Tome of Beasts 2, which contains 400 new monsters for Dungeon Masters to throw at their unsuspecting players.

The original Tome of Beasts has been a big success with players since it launched in November 2016. The new entry matches the original’s monster count and, like the original, is fully playtested.

The campaign, which you can check out here, has already met its funding goals and then some with $210,041 as of this writing against a $30,000 goal with 23 days to go. Contributors to the campaign can get the full Tome of Beasts in PDF for $25, a Tome of Beast Lairs PDF featuring encounters featuring monsters from the main book for $15, or both for $35. Higher contributions come with other rewards of course.

The campaign describes the book as follows:

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. All Tome of Beasts II Kickstarter backers at the $25 level and up can submit an original monster design for possible publication.

In addition to the Tome of Beasts II hardcover volume and PDFs, this Kickstarter will fund the creation of monster pawns, VTT versions, monster lairs with beautiful maps, and more!
