Since I started writing this blog, a number of readers have asked whether I planned to compile The Monsters Know What They’re Doing’s monster tactics into a book, and the answer I gave was always no.
Then I was made an offer I couldn’t refuse.
The Monsters Know What They’re Doing: Combat Tactics for Dungeon Masters is due to be published Dec. 3, 2019, by Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon and Schuster, and is now available for pre-order!
This book will feature all the creatures I’ve analyzed from the Monster Manual, along with exclusive analyses of un-blogged monsters including aarakocra, basilisks, cockatrices, dinosaurs, griffons and hippogriffs, kenku, merfolk, quaggoths and xorn, and will be available in both hardcover and e-book formats.
Click here to pre-order The Monsters Know What They’re Doing from your favorite independent bookseller. I’m a strong believer in independent booksellers as community anchors, promoting the free expression and sharing of ideas, enriching the cultural life of communities, and keeping money circulating in the local economy. If you don’t already have a favorite independent bookseller, maybe it’s time to get to know one!
Or, I guess, you could pre-order from one of these online retailers:
