Given that they're bringing back Planescape, perhaps something along the lines of "Skall's Book of the Dead"?

edit: I can't say I'm particularly up on M:tG lore, but isn't she mainly an antagonist? The monster books have been named after (arguably *) friendly NPCs, and the players option ones after antagonists.

* Lookin' at you, Mordenkainen - lookin' at you.
Lilliana is the type of hero who looks like a villain, but she's clearly on the good guys side at this point.

I think she would be a great named character for the Undead book.

Is that the question?

Or is the better question ...

With Mordenkainen, Tasha, and now Bigby, who will be the next Greyhawk personage to have a book?

Tenser? Melf? Eclavdra? Bucknard? Rexfelis? Evard? Otiluke? Robilar?

I think Tenser would be next on that list if they wanted most name recognition, although Evard of the Black Tentacles fame could work for aberrations or Undead.

Hmm, Van Richten's, Fizban's.

Has there been no Elminster's or Drizzt's yet in 5e?

Ooh maybe Vol's Guide to the living dead.

Bargle's Guide to Murdering Clerics.

Seriously though, we've got books from characters from the Realms, Dragonlance, Greyhawk, and Ravenloft. Mystara needs some love, and Bargle's the most recognizable name.

With a Planescape release, how about a book on planewalking from Tarsheva Longreach?

A better quesrion: what 2024 Adventure will Bigby appear in? They have always had their supplement named NPCs show up in an Adventure the next year.

With the reintroduction of the division between Divine, Arcane, and Primal magic types in the new D&D play test, I would love to see a plant/beast book that delves into the themes of the Primal, maybe even bring back Primal Spirits as higher level beats/plant creature types that can be encountered/fought.

I also really, REALLY want a Celestial book.

Iuz's book of the Deranged

King Obould's Cookbook of Elves

A book describing elves of ALL varieties, narrated by the orcish warlord Obould (and punctuated by suggestions of ales and herbs that marries best with each sub-group).

Joke aside, a book on undead and fey seems logical continuation. A book on contructs (and how they are made) would be immensely interesting, but I wouldn't hold my breath on that.

Aberrations absolutely. It's been almost 20 years since Lords of Madness. 4e never got an aberrations focused book. Mind flayers and beholders are much too iconic for them not to get a book of their own in 5e.

I think it would be cool of a book was written from a villain's point of view.

🤷‍♂️ Maybe a famous Mindflayer chef, describing humanoids and the different flavors of brain 🧠

Back in 3E it was
Draconomicon - dragons
Libre Mortis
- undead
Lords of Madness - aberrations
Fiendish Codex I: Hordes of the Abyss - demons
Fiendish Codex II: Tyrants of the Nine Hells - devils
Drow of the Underdark - drow

I could see all these back in 5E, though Drow would probably now be a subsection of Feywild/Elf book.

I’d love something along the lines of the 4e primal spirits, which the recent UA has hinted at.

A book of Fey, and Shadow beings, also.
