D&D 5E Check out Witchlight's Table of Contents

There's a (blurry) image of Wild Beyond The Witchlight's table of contents floating round on the internet. It purportedly comes from this Imgur account, but I can't see it there.

Somewhat disappointing. One of the reasons I buy these books is for the extras not necessarily the adventures itself.
That's how it always is with adventures though. If it isn't in the MM, they reprint it. I can't think of one that hasn't done so since Volo's came out.

As long as we get new and interesting stat blocks, that's fine with me. And we are getting Iggwilv's and the jabberwock's stat blocks in this one...

(And it's nice that they are finally putting in page numbers for stat blocks outside the Creature appendix)

I couldnt read the picture too well but I recognized the boggle, darklings, korreds and quicklings. I pre-ordered it so at the very least I can sell a mostly complete 5E collrction when the zombie apocalypse comes. At the most I can mine it for ideas for a one or two shot mirroring our RL campaign.

Looks like a lot of reprints on creatures (booooo) but lots of NPC (Hopefully with new stat blocks)
Meh. I like the list! Plenty of new-to-5th creatures, and most importantly . . . campestris!!! Adorable little singing mushroom friends!

New monsters, and up-conversions of older monsters not yet in 5th, are cool and all, but . . . overrated. It's an adventure! If it's well-crafted and fun, that's all I need.

I count 8, or 12 if you are counting multiple stat-blocks of the same creature. Not really what I’d consider plenty, given all the fey that could be there, but we might have different expectations.
8 works for a count. Like I said, plenty. :)

I mean, more would certainly be cool, but this is an adventure, not a monster book.
 



I have a feeling I'm about to see more than a few anime rabbit girl rogues/ninjas after harengons come out. Not hating it though.
WoTC knew exactly what they were doing/doors opening when they came up with a Rabbit/Bunny race.

And yes: I am going to use the Haregon as an excuse to have Bunny Girls in DND now.
 

For all those sadden by the lack of new 5E fey in this book just remember: The Wilds Beyond the Witchlight is basically WoTC first foray in bringing the Feywild, or any aspect of it, into 5E. 4E was when the Fey got totally revamped, as a whole, for DND. Perhaps they figure they get their feet wet, ala Curse of Strahd, before jumping full blown into this edition's Feywild.
