Over time players become complacent, sure in the knowledge that they have encountered every creature in the book and catalogued all treasures to be found. They won’t be so certain when the judge pulls out a new book of 32 pages of monsters and treasures that they’ve never seen before!
Monsters & Treasures of the Wilderlands 1 includes 27 new monsters designed for use with Castles & Crusades® and the Wilderlands of High Adventure™. Running the gamut from pesky 1 HD faeries to fallen 15 HD demi-gods, each monster includes details on ecology and society, powers and treasures. Some are hauntingly familiar, just enough so as to trip up the unwary adventurer, while others are entirely new and created from whole cloth.
Maps are included showing the most common locations these monsters are encountered throughout the Wilderlands and beyond. Though designed for use in the Wilderlands, every monster can find a home elsewhere, and is easily adapted into just about any fantasy campaign setting.
Also included are 16 new treasures, ranging from the least bauble to great and potent (and usually, most dire) relics. Each is tied to the Wilderlands, adding more detail to your Wilderlands campaign, though the histories can readily be altered to suit any campaign.
