One of the founders of our hobby and one of the most unsung contributors to Dungeons & Dragons, Len Lakofka has passed away at the age of 76.
Along with the many adventures, classes, spells, and rules he created, Len was also father of the Suel in Greyhawk, designer of their gods, and namesake of the Lendore Isles.
The value of his work goes without saying, but his presence will be sorely missed. The adventures of Leomund go on.
If you have not seen it, Moongoose Publishing has released a monster manual (hardback, print) devoted entirely to epic monsters. Most of the monsters therein are culled from other Mongoose products or are OGL.
The book is useful in direct proportion to how much of the content you may already own. If you are a regular purchaser of Mongoose (and to a lesser extent other 3rd Party D&D publishers) products, you may already have most of these monsters. If you pretty much stay with Wotc releases, most of the material in the Epic Monsters book will be new to you.
Either way, there is one large drawback to this book. Not all of the monsters are illustrated. I'd say only about half are actually illustrated. For me, this is an issue, as I get an idea about a monster as much from its picture as from its description or stats. YMMV.
I think this is definitely worth a look. _________________ GVD
For what its worth the information on monsters and the Epic feats is updated with all the 3.5e 'errata' included, so that might make it worth your while if you use any of the updates. _________________ Canonfire Community Supporter and Forum Justicar
