Matt and Rob share their first impressions of the sixth rule book in the Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition: Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes.
There will be war. There will be blood. There will
be a Blood War. Your hosts talk about the upgrading the
Tiefling with the new stuff in this book. The new Githzerai
and Githyanki are full of flavor and story-telling potential; the
other section of races and sub-races for Elves, Dwarves, and
Halflings not so much. Reprints abound! Wizards then
makes us sad by putting Tortles and Giff into the book but not
giving them racial stats for players.
The monsters are great! We hit on our favorites (allips, chokers, and maruts). Rob and Matt chat about what lessons DMs can learn on how to modify monsters from the sections on Ogres, Drow, and Trolls.
