Kickstarter Tome of Beasts 2 Kickstarter Launched! D&D 5E

Kobold Press' latest Kickstarter is here - Tome of Beasts II with 400 new 5E monsters. It funded in an hour and is rocketing through stretch goals!

Expand Your Game with New Demons & Dragons!

From the creators of the original Tome of Beasts! Kobold Press is wrangling a new horde of wildly original, often lethal, and highly entertaining 5E-compatible monsters to challenge new players and veterans alike.

The Tome of Beasts II will bring 400 new monsters to 5th edition, from angelic enforcers, sasquatch and shriekbats, to psychic vampires, zombie dragons, and so much more.

In addition to these lethal creatures to spring on players, if you back the Tome of Beasts II Kickstarter at the $25 level and up you can submit an original monster design for possible publication! The original Tome of Beasts published 40 such backer monsters, including some extremely popular creations!

Along with the Tome of Beasts II hardcover volume and PDFs, this Kickstarter will fund the creation of monster pawns, VTT versions for Roll20 and Fantasy Grounds, monster lairs with beautiful maps, and more!

I can't view it from behind my firewall... but is it an undead Ghoul construct?

After seeing the Ghoul Steed, I like to joke that the Ghouls ride the Human Centipede into battle. :)
This is directly from the Kickstarter update,

"Today’s creature is the Ogrepede!

  • It is an undead amalgam of ogre torsos and arms.
  • It likes destroying beautiful things and roams the battlefield in a haphazard, lopsided gait.
  • Its haphazard movement causes it to barrel into its opponents."

Very close to that next stretch goal to add low level monsters under CR 1. Pretty sure they'll hit that today or in the morning. Next up? Even MORE backer submissions!

ToB2 Week 2.jpg


The Tome of Beasts 2 Kickstarter has more than 3,500 backers and has raised more than $240,000 ... and there's still 17 days to go! This book is going to be amazing!

In the past week, backers have unlocked a shadow fey captain and a new Fey Lady of Shadows to grace the Courts of the Shadow Fey. They've also unlocked additional low-CR creatures - no more throwing hordes of kobolds at your players - now you can throw a variety of non-kobolds at them, saving kobolds everywhere! Rejoice!

The next stretch goal is at $260k and increases the number of backer monsters we can add to the book to 45. That means 45 of your monsters could be in the book. Continue sharing this Kickstarter and let's hit that next stretch goal!

If you haven't backed yet, please check it out and consider becoming a backer - help us make Tome of Beasts 2 the biggest, bestest 5E monster book yet! :)

  • This Demon Lord is the Purveyor of Deception and the progenitor of all manner of insects that are both beautiful and deadly, such as death butterflies. He is death cloaked in beauty.
  • His claws hold a deadly venom and his delicate-looking wings have the power to blow over opponents.

Digging this. Rhopalocerex has a very Moorcock vibe, like someone Elric would have to fight or would summon.
