We all know that for a referee, having an encounter is better than just having a monster. But we Mushfolk are of the opinion that an adventure is better than an encounter. Our bestiary gives you exactly that: enough material to design whole scenarios around each monster.
From the nerds who bring you KNOCK! magazine comes A Folklore Bestiary full of whimsical, spooky creatures inspired by actual folktales and superstitions. Dungeons & Dragons never really stopped to explore the weird corners of folklore tradition. We drew on this endless font of creepy knowledge to make our games legendary again!

We’ve got giants, we’ve got faeries, we’ve got weird magical beasts. And we’ve got more than one titanic beast that’ll get the Tarasque run for its life! But more importantly, we have the tales these monsters come from. For every one of them, we’ve included one to three pages of gameable material: adventure hooks, magical items, spells, dungeons and hexcrawls, and more!
