EN World member DM_Jeff backed the Kickstarter of Frog God Games / Necromancer Games Fifth Edition Foes monster book. "I also just got the PDF download and am pouring through it. Anyone wanting all the monsters from 1st edition Monster Manual 2 and Fiend Folio, wonder no more. Developed by TSR alum Steve Winter (same fellow who is the co-designer of Hoard of the Dragon Queen) it's got just shy of 300 new (old) beasties for 5e. It was a real pleasure opening this sucker up and seeing that they went with filling in all the old favorites instead of making up entirely new creatures. Any questions ask away."

I'm downloading mine too! Very excited, I did not expect this, it's like Christmas. The spellbook and adventure book should be coming soon too.

Interesting...I backed the project but haven't received a download link. By off chance, do you know if there was a rolling release or something?

If this is just a mashup of the monsters from 1e/2e/ and fiend folios, how is the conversion math? 5E isnt set on too many concrete rules for monster conversions...

Is it worth it? Or just convert on the fly yourself?

How many pages is this and the others on their site. I missed the kickstarter but was interested in it until I saw 20$ for each PDF which to me is crazy unless the content is large and mostly useful

It's 1e/2e/fiend folios and some from Dragon, White Dwarf and other sources, and a bunch of originals as well. I think they did a decent job taking the raw abilities and feel of each creature and interpreting it in 5e fashion. It's obvious a lot of thought was put into making the stats useful and faithful to the originals so I find that a good value. Saves me work and time? OK!

Fifth Edition Foes is 260 pages, I don't think they've released a page count for the others.

I think it's pretty darn cool. It actually *feels* nothing like the 5e Monster Manual, so take that for what it's worth. It gives me Fiend Folio vibes, and that's fine with me.

I love this thing right here:
