Beasts of Legend: Coldwood Codex (5e) – Sean’s Pick, 111015

No equivocation, I use this space often to promote the efforts of friends. Here’s a really good one from my buddies at Legendary Games, a D&D Next-compatible bestiary that flows from an entire line dedicated to expanding your library of latest-edition material. I particularly dig the at-the-table utility approach, featuring handouts and paper minis!

A fantastical 5E bestiary of fey and undead! 

A good game can never have enough monsters, and the Coldwood Codex brings you 10 brand-new creatures suitable for use in any 5th Edition campaign, especially if your heroes are wandering in search of their fortune through the cold, desolate woods of the northern wilds. These creatures add a delightful bit of novel menace equally split between fey spirits bursting with the raw and wild energies of life and vile undead seething with the power of death. Drawing upon real-world folklore, classic fantasy tropes, and the design skills of the top creative minds in the business, the Coldwood Codex is an indispensable addition to any GM’s monster toolkit. This 42-page monster product includes not only full-page color player-friendly handout portraits but also foldable paper miniatures for every creature!

Future installments of the Beasts of Legend series will continue introducing richly detailed monsters  carefully tailored to specific campaign themes, like the wintry menaces in the Boreal Bestiary, the pitiless creations of the Construct Codex, and the wide-ranging Asian adversaries in Beasts of the East! These are terrific additions to our existing 5th Edition product line, including horror adventures like The Fiddler’s Lament and The Murmuring Fountain, the overland expedition Road to Destiny, and upcoming adventures like the witch-haunted The Baleful Coven, the desolate fey wilderness of Cold Mountain, and the pirate shenanigans of Spices and Flesh!

We hope you enjoy using it as much as we enjoyed making it, and that you’ll keep coming back again and again to Make Your Game Legendary!
