Book of Beasts

Forbidden Lands Sourcebook

"By the Nightwalker, get up! These beasts are mere chickens!” Shieldmaiden Armanda pulled her sword from the dragon spawn and wiped the steel on the merchant’s fur collar as he lay there. “Look at that, you’re finally baptized!” she grinned and looked at her companion’s soiled face.

A bestiary you can play. This monster manual for the multiple award-winning Forbidden Lands retro-fantasy survival RPG is beautifully illustrated and filled to the brim with murderous monsters and lethal encounters. The contents also include rules for traps, rare tomes, and alchemy, as well as a system for playing Forbidden Lands solo. It presents at least twenty-eight new monsters in great detail. Each beast comes ready to play with tailored random encounters, presenting the Gamemaster with a handy set of mini-adventures to go.

The book also includes legends about each monster, introduces the option to harvest resources from slain beasts, and lets the player characters use their Lore skills to gain insight into a monster´s strengths and weaknesses. This will help them defeat – or at least survive an encounter with – the book´s monstrosities. Among the monsters within these covers you will find the Amphibian, the Basilisk, the Iron Dragon, the Twisted Ent, and many more, ready for use in any Forbidden Lands campaign.

The Book of Beasts is penned by seasoned game writers Andreas Marklund and Erik Granström, gloriously illustrated by Henrik Rosenborg and with graphics by Niklas Brandt.
