Beasts from the East. Asian Monsters is a 112-page softcover DnD 5E bestiary featuring over 90 incredible creatures drawn from the myths and legends of Asia. Researched and developed with a diverse team of authors, artists, and cultural consultants, you’ll find an awesome array of enemies and allies from Cambodia, China, India, Japan, Korea, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, Tibet, and Vietnam, as well as nations of the western Pacific like Indonesia, Australia, and the Philippines, beautifully illustrated and ready to unleash in your 5E campaign.
Within these pages, you’ll find creatures to challenge any adventurer, from minor menaces like the kyeryong and kappa to gargantuan sea monsters like the doom-bringing umibozu and the death-whale bakekujira. The restless dead are found here in plenty, with a variety of gwishin and gaki alongside deadlier foes like the jiang-shi, bhuta, and manananggal. There are dragons here to be sure, and giants like the kabandha, and fey and familiar spirts like the kami and nat. Wise and powerful celestials like the garuda and kirin stand against fiends like oni and asuras, ranging in power from simple komainu guardian beasts to mighty rakshasa maharajas that threaten the gods themselves. If your campaign world feels a little too safe and secure, you’ll even find several kaiju in this book, to bring something truly titanic to your table! Whether you are running an entirely Asian campaign or want to bring these incredible creatures to every corner of your world, this spectacular monster book will Make Your Game Legendary!
