Who couldn't use a few new monsters in their game?

Monster Manual V is the most recent volume in the best-selling Monster Manual line. This D&D supplement presents a fully illustrated hoard of new monsters, as well as ready-to-play variations of previously existing monsters. In addition, this supplement features maps of monster lairs, sample encounters, and tactics sections to help Dungeon Masters run the more complex creatures. Additionally, many entries contain information about where monsters are likely to appear in the Forgotten Realms and Eberron compaign settings.</td/</tr></table>

ready-to-play variations of previously existing monstersI've heard a number of complaints about the Monster Manual IV being padded with old monsters with a few class levels or templates added. I'm kind of torn on this. As a DM with a busy schedule, I appreciate the ability to pluck one of these already "advanced" monsters out of the MM and throw it into my game. And one has to wonder just how many more creative bones WotC can pick to come up with new and interesting monsters. All the classics have basically been covered at this point anyway... What do you think? I have a feeling if you didn't like MM4, MM5 probably won't float your boat either.

Alright another monster manual. Some love them, some hate them, most don't care. But I do. I love the fact that since MM3 the manuals have given a description of where the creatures live, and there base reactions. this really helps when you as a DM need to figure out what kind of creatures the party will encounter and where. I remember the First Game that I played the DM through some salamanders (Frost version) at us in a tropical area. Many of the players wondered why but that was the way the random encounter was rolled.


(Plus I love to see the new monsters and there descriptions)

Well, my copy has arrived. I just need to go pick it up from the post office. We'll see how it goes.

I've not bought IV or V yet. But I will be doing just that. I like the idea of having 'higher level' monsters even though I don't have an epic game running - it's still just cool to look at.

I will note that I was a little disappointed in the Fiend Folio - it didn't have some of the more frightening monsters that the first one did.

I'll wait for the MM-XXV to come out, then invest in the entire encyclopedia at once.

That way we'll all know that the fourth edition is only days away.
