“Remember how great Monster Manual Expanded 1 was? Well you can take that and double it with Monster Manual Expanded 2. Long story short, buy it - you won’t regret it.”

- Nerdimmersion


“Better than the first! Wowee this book has every monster I have ever wanted that wasn’t covered in the official Monster Manual plus heaps more. Up to par with the official 5e books, if not better in some places. Full art, and over 300 pages. An absolute tome! Personal favorite: The Grim.”
- P.B. Publishing


“For content here… the amount you’re getting... I have to give this 5 out of 5.”
- Allthingslich


“As with the first volume, this is very well conceived and equally well executed. It is well written and concise… and features plenty of well chosen, quality examples of artwork throughout, including a lot of new and original pieces”
- D&D Misfits & Monsters


“The Monster Manual Expanded II does exactly as promised: this tome delivers dozens more variants based on the Monster Manual, Volo’s Guide to Monsters, and the creatures of Mordenkainen’s Tome Of Foes.”

- Bob World Builder


Monster Manual Expanded II is the sequel to the ADAMANTINE-best-selling Monster Manual Expanded.  Just like the first book, this aims to provide Dungeon Masters more options and flexibility in designing adventures and dressing up their dungeons with a wider variety of creatures and characters that are based on the Monster Manual, Volo's Guide to Monsters, Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes, and many others.  Finally, it also adds variants that provide a nostalgic and classic feel that DMs experienced with the older editions are probably familiar with.

Lolth. Asmodeus. Mephistopheles.  Just a few of the many iconic characters and creatures you can find in here.  In total, there are over 390 creature stat blocks in this book at the Dungeon Master's disposal!  

PRINT-ON-DEMAND/HARDCOVER NOTE: The POD is NOW AVAILABLE in Standard and Premium HC Format!!! 

What's the difference between Standard and Premium?  Standard uses normal paper while Premium uses semi-glossy paper, which makes the artwork brighter and more colorful.

Check out the images of the print-on-demand versions!

Yes, the PoD is nearly identical to the latest PDF file update. The only difference are the promotions of new products at the end of the pdf.

The 3rd book of this series has an amazing Creature by Environment Appendix, but is anyone tracking a source that does the same for books 1 and 2?

Is the mentioned updated version also what we see when looking at a Full-Size preview? I've spotted a fair number of grammar mistakes/typos in the sample and would like to know if those have possibly been fixed in the PDF (especially if that is the source document for printing). Thanks in advance.

It is currently in premedia process with DMs Guild. I am just waiting for an approval to order a test copy. Once I’ve received my test copy and see no issues, then it will be ready for PoD. So if there are no print or shipping issues, ETA is late June.

Sorry for the question, but I'm relatively new to this store: <br />
If I own the previous version of the book, do I still have to play the new version at full price? If not, how can I download the new version?

I understand that updates are still pending, I'm sure you have been told that two of the Aspects (Fraz-Urb'luu, Geryon) descriptions are not complete. Just wanted to say I purchased all three of the expanded series and they look awesome. Thanks for such high quality material.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.

Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
