I think WotC nailed it this time. The best part is that they've revisited some iconic monsters with the improved format: giants, gargoyles, ghouls, gnolls, minotaurs, ogres.

    I'm beyond happy the op likes the art for the catoblepas and nymphs--to say they're both very special to me would be a massive understatement.

    The whole nymph concept evolved like a dream; at one point in that evolution I realized they connected ideally with some photos I'd taken the previous year, and this inspired the concept even moreso. Here are a few of them.

    It's the place where those from Japan go.

    Although Jack99 or others here sometimes get the New stuff and have a thread dedicated to it. Just haven't recently.

    MM3 is readily available in the US at WotC premier game stores since today is 10 days before the official release date. I looked at it two hours ago and it looks awesome (I almost bought it right there, but my wife wouldn't like me spending more money if I could get it from; I had to content myself with the new tile set and the tiefling book).
    Veronica: Where's your brother?
    Dick: I think he took Ghost World up to his room. They're probably up there making love. Or playing Dungeons and Dragons. Or both, at the same time. They're both, like, 12th-level dorks. I'm just sayin'

    This time the spoilers there are Americans. I think it has to do with other things.

    How could you pick the tiefling book and some sort of TILES over the MM3?!

    ... Unless you're a player and not a DM.

    I want to know if there are any plants. The only way this MM could be better is if there were (included some Yellow Musk Creepers) and any sort of mold/fungal monsters.

    Yeah, I picked up my copies of Monster Manual 3 and Deserts of Athas at D&D Encounters on Wednesday. I thought all stores running Encounters got this stuff early. They are allowed to sell them early, right?
