Wouldn't be against getting a Kaldheim setting book, if they have room for it in the production schedule. A Norse mythology themed Theros equivalent has a lot of potential.

I doubt I'd ever use it "as is", since I'm not a Magic fan and have no real interest in Magic settings in and of themselves, but I am absolutely willing to plunder them for mechanics and ideas. The Theros Piety subsystem is a fantastic toolset for religious characters, in my mind.


I think the Gargantua is the monster from the Kara-Tur Monstrous Compendium that's also known as Kaiju.
That what I expected, but it is apparently not the case in this book:
A gargantua starts off looking like its parents, but it can grow to a height of 40 feet or more and ends up turning purplish and sprouting big horns. They don't feel welcome in giant communities, so they tend to go off to lonely places to be alone. They've got a Weird Aura (nightmares / psychic damage), although it doesn't mention anything about creating gigants. They've got some fun reactions: they can attempt to flick smaller creatures away or mimic a spell of 5th level or lower.


What the hell are those horns growing from? What there any thought put into this?
They look like they're growing out of the back of his neck. Perhaps he's like a triceratops or something. ;)

(I agree, though, that WotC artists struggle with this sort of thing -- i.e. they can't always figure out how to make sense of Tiamat's anatomy either.)
