Monster Manual IV is the most recent volume in the best-selling Monster Manual line. Sure to be popular with both Dungeon Masters and players, this supplement to the D&D® game provides descriptions for a vast array of new creatures. Each monster is illustrated and utilises a new statblock format that facilitates faster gameplay. In addition, each monster gets more pages than used in previous supplements to detail sample encounters and pre-generated treasure hordes. Also included are details on how to incorporate creatures in a Forgotten Realms® or Eberron® campaign. This product is tied to 2006's Year of the Dragon theme, which will be the target of marketing from RPGs, novels, and miniatures brands.
