I just got D&D’s new sourcebook, Open Grave in the mail last night. It’s a GM book, lots of undead monsters, lots of tips on using undead monsters, and a couple of undead-lairs. It’s the same format as Draconomicon, which I enjoyed, but I think I’m likely to get even more use out of this one.
(Short note concerning Draconomicon- there’s a number of non-Solo dragons in there which is more useful for building encounters, but rubs me the wrong way. I also don’t terribly like the way they did hatchling dragons, but that may just be because I did them differently in my own game.)
Anyway, I’ve only gotten to skim over the book, but I already love it- there’s a reference to my favorite movie. Check out the Drowned Ghost- the art, the stat block, and the knowledge check.
