The second installment in the DinoFiles line focuses on the theropods, an order of dinosaurs that produced some of the most fearsome predators the planet has ever seen. Inside this volume you will find theropods of all sizes and shapes, from the speedy, man-sized Coelophysis to the gargantuan Giganotosaurus, the largest terrestrial predator of all time.
All of these dinosaurs can be easily inserted into any campaign, and can be used by DMs and players alike. In addition, with CRs ranging from 1 to 12, there’s a dinosaur appropriate for nearly all levels of play, either as a challenging foe or an interesting option for familiars, mounts, and animal companions.
So, if you are looking to spice up the jungles and primeval forests of your campaign, or you just want to give your PCs some interesting options for animal companions, then take a look at Blackdirge Publishing and the DinoFiles series.
