Volo's Guide to Monsters
Immerse yourself in monster lore in this supplement for the world’s greatest roleplaying game
 
This is NOT just another Monster Manual! Volo’s Guide to Monsters provides something exciting for players and Dungeon Masters everywhere.
· A deep dive into the lore behind some of D&D’s most popular and iconic monsters
· Dozens of monsters new to the fifth edition to include in your epic adventures
· New playable races to allow you to build characters to fit nearly any type of story in your D&D game.
 
The esteemed loremaster Volothamp Geddarm is back and he’s written a fantastical dissertation, covering some of the most iconic monsters in the Forgotten Realms. Unfortunately, the Sage of Shadowdale himself, Elminster, doesn’t believe Volo gets some of the important details quite right. Don’t miss out as Volo and Elminster square off (academically speaking of course) to illuminate the uninitiated on creatures both common and obscure. Uncover the machinations of the mysterious Kraken Society, what is the origin of the bizarre froghemoth, or how to avoid participating in the ghastly reproductive cycle of the grotesque vargouille.  Dungeon Masters and players will get some much-needed guidance as you plan your next venture, traipsing about some dusty old ruin in search of treasure, lore, and let’s not forget ... dangerous creatures whose horns, claws, fangs, heads, or even hides might comfortably adorn the walls of your trophy room. If you survive.
 
Research has never been so dangerous!

And so the nightly hunt begins...
From the same team that created the critically acclaimed Dark Souls II guide comes a new invaluable treasure. We've gone behind the scenes with Bloodborne's creators to unearth every secret hidden within the mysterious city of Yharnam. Your hunt through the streets of Yharnam will be your most exciting and rewarding journey yet, and the road will be hard. But fear not! This guide is your key to mastering the merciless challenges and navigating the darkest depths of the city.

BONUS CHEST
=> Exclusive interview with Bloodborne's creator, Hidetaka Miyazaki
=> Lore index to aid in your research of this dark world
=> The Art of Bloodborne -- every page is a masterpiece of its own
=> Exclusive Dynamic Theme: let the Hunter's Mark adorn your PS4


Training Manual
Yharnam's no place for novice hunters. Understanding how Bloodborne works starts here, and anyone who doesn't arm themselves with understanding of its intricate systems will be quickly cut down.

Hunting Grounds
From the streets of Yharnam to the end of the nightmare, critical routes and rewarding detours are plotted on detailed, invaluable maps. Text points highlight events, encounters, and tactics for each area's key landmarks. This hunter's compendium leaves no paving stone unturned.

The Bestiary
A good hunter knows his enemy's weaknesses. He knows their behavior. He knows what it takes to kill them efficiently. Study your prey carefully and discover all of the elements that make them what they are -- and then the hunt is on!

Arsenal & Attire
Your weapon's only lethal if you know how to use it. Here you'll learn about weapon properties, hidden damage modifiers, attack ranges, swing speeds, and much more. Whether you're hunting beasts or other hunters, you'll have the knowledge... and the advantage.

The Chalice Dungeons
These mean labyrinths of death provide an unending treasure trove of discovery and despair. Though the walls may shift and the denizens may change, we have prepared exhaustive notes detailing the horrifying and mysterious Chalice Dungeons. Their rewards are matched only by their challenge; don't rush in unprepared.

Hunter's Appendices
The world of Bloodborne is deep and populated by fascinating people and deadly creatures. Finding all of the NPCs is a first step, and completing their quests is another. We offer more than that, though; here you will find behind the scenes info on the world and its characters from the people who created it! If you seek 100% completion and total mastery of Yharnam, search no further.
