5E Green Ronin's Book of Fiends for 5E

Green Ronin has launched the crowdfunding campaign for their Book of Fiends -- a hardcover book of demons, devils and other assorted nasties.


These Planes of Perdition are home to the wickedest denizens of the multiverse and The Book of Fiends brings them crashing into your 5E campaign!

The original Book of Fiends came out back in the early-2000s for D&D 3.5. It compiled Legions of Hell, and Armies of the Abyss, Green Ronin's two previous books (the former was one of my favourite third party 3.5 books at the time).

This is a 200-page book with over 130 demons, devils, and over plane denizens, the Lords of Hell, Demon Princes, and Exarchs of Gehenna, and monsters from CR 0-31.

It's on GameOnTabletop, and you can grab the PDF for $25 or the hardcover for $50.


These Planes of Perdition are home to the wickedest denizens of the multiverse and The Book of Fiends brings them crashing into your 5E campaign! This 200+ page, beautifully illustrated, full-color hardback includes:
  • Details on the nine Lords of Hell, the seven Exarchs of Gehenna, and a plethora of Demon Princes.
  • Over 130 daemons, devils, demons, and other creatures of the Lower Planes.
  • Monsters with challenge ratings from 0 to 31; there are foes for characters of all levels.
  • Info on the celestial choirs and the fallen angels.
  • Details on the Abyss, Hell, and Gehenna and their place among the planes.
  • A fantastic new cover from Svetoslav Petrov and evocative interior illustrations from artists like Andrey Vasilchenko, Stanislav Dikolenko, and Katerina Ladon.
What’s more, all the rules and stats in The Book of Fiends were designed by Robert J. Schwalb (of Shadow of the Demon Lordfame), who was on the Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition design team. The rest of the original design team is also stellar: Aaron Loeb (Book of the Righteous), Erik Mona (Paizo Publishing), and Chris Pramas (AD&D Guide to Hell).

The Book of Fiends provides profoundly evil foes your players will never forget. Level Ups (AKA stretch goals) will add new Player Character options, tie-in fiction, and more.

Why Game on Tabletop, and not Kickstarter? Green Ronin's Chris Pramas says --

"What’s different about this project is that we are doing it on Game On Tabletop. This is a newer crowdfunding platform and we are excited to launch our first campaign there. Game On was created by our long-time partners in France, Black Book Editions.

Game On Tabletop has a lot of great tools, most of which will be invisible to you but are hugely useful to us. The best thing about it is that it’s a crowdfunding platform and a pledge manager rolled into one. This means you’ll be able to take care of everything at one site. You can back the project, buy add-ons, and pay shipping all in one place. If you haven’t backed a project there before, we think you’re really going to like it."

I so want to back this book... but just like the Expanded MM on DMsGuild, the book is going to end up well over $100 to get to me in Australia.
I just can't justify that to family on any book. I am sure it is worth it, but I would have to put a fiend into my game every week I played to justify it. :(
I am going to have to make the move to PDFs afterall methinks :(
Looks great though. :)


1.Sure. Or Green Ronin could just print and sell a product if they think there is a market for it. This is the case with the vast majority of their catalog.

2. I mean, at that point you're paying for the privilege of playtesting and proofreading a product. That's a hard pass for me.

3. Do you really believe that Green Ronin won't put this book into distribution?

4. And I can do that just fine buying it when it hits distribution, they still make money and I'm not just giving away extra money just because.

I really wouldn't care so much if they just gave you something for backing if they're going to charge full price plus shipping. Like an extra demon or something. Just something.
I think with the growth of pirating that crowdfunding is just the future of products that people want. Especially niche products. These books don’t sell like Harry Potter, or the PHB for that matter.
