"The art in this book is amazing, and in some instances, terrifying! Like some of it is legitimately scary! I'm very excited about it...there's just so much awesome content! It's gonna rise right to the top of the best-sellers list!"
- Nerd Immersion.


"Easily one of the best products I have ever looked at... Monster Manual Expanded III proves the series is still a must-buy for Dungeon Masters, with a huge variety of awesome new monsters, empowered by some of the best creature artwork you will find on the DMs Guild."
- Rogue Watson.


"(Monster Manual Expanded III) is really in a different ballpark. This time around, the creators outdid themselves. I love it... I cannot wait for the printed copy!"
- Mr. Tarrasque.


"Monster Manual Expanded 3 and its prequels are absolute MUST HAVES for all DMs toolkits. The artwork and layout are out of this world. The monster mechanics and lore are more varied than Baskin-Robbins ice cream flavors. And to top it off...there are SO MANY to choose from. This is certainly a 10/10 product! Get it! Get it now!"
- Crit Academy


"I'm gonna try and remain as objective as possible but I'm going to reveal my hand to you right now... this product is incredible!
This one really stands out, notably because of the quality of the artwork... it's so inspiring for me as a Dungeon Master to want to grab these things and bring them to the table."
- All Things Lich.

Unleash over 300 terrifying new monsters!

Monster Manual Expanded III continues what the two previous Adamantine Best-Selling bestiaries have started, providing dungeon masters with additional creature options to help fill their adventures. There are 320 statblocks (using the new Monsters of the Multiverse statblock style) spread across this 280+ page tome, most of which are archetypes and variants found in the Monster Manual, Volo's Guide to Monsters, Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes, and other official 5E adventurer books. There will be more new monsters this third time around, though, most of which come from earlier D&D editions. A large number of them will have legendary actions, giving the dungeon master more boss options. The biggest change, however, are the gorgeous, professionally commissioned art pieces that will inspire DMs and terrify players!

The roll20 versions will start with MME 1. This will be released when Roll20 is launched in DMs Guild. MME3 will follow after. MME2 will be delayed until the 2nd edition is completed.

My printed copy is on the way, but I just needed to say that the artwork samples presented here made this an instant-purchase for me. The consistency in style and exceptional quality make it stand out head and shoulders above similar titles. I cannot wait to get my physical copy.

Small update: I've uploaded the correct classic spellcasting pdf format (Monster Manual Expanded_III_v1.00.51 classic spellcasting). Please use this instead of the 1.05 version (which didn't have all the old spellcasting lists).

Due to the absolutely horrible costs of hardcovers, is there a way to start seeing about doing softcovers? Because there isn't any fathomable world where I will pay $90 for a single 3rd party book. No insults to you guys; it's great stuff, but not "pay double what official content costs" great.

The softcover version difference would have only been under $5. It is because of the premium page format and the number of pages (294) the reason why it is this expensive. We've tried the standard format which could have saved $22 but the image output was well below the standards we want (images ended up too dark and muddy). The premium format pages, due to its semi-gloss texture, retained the vividness of the images.

Ahhhh I see. Well I appreciate the response, and if/when supply issues are less prevalent and the cost goes down I may pick this up. At the very least I may pick up a pdf and hopefully get a solid deal on hardcover in the future if the prices go to a level of normal.

Thank you for your thoughtful response; this type of transparency is so valuable and that sells myself (and maybe others) far better than content of a book.

Now that we are beginning to see FoundryVTT content on here...is there now a possibility of getting a FoundryVTT module in the future? Or is there still an exclusivity part that as a consumer I don't know about? I have Purchased this (All 3) for FG, and one pdf, and I would gladly purchase it again for FoundryVTT. These manuals have been an integral part in bringing my encounters to the next level, and keeping my Veteran players on their toes.

Hello, quick question. The PoD is discounted right now, but why isn't the PoD+pdf combo?

Hi, is there any way to order the 1.05 version as POD? Can't stand the new WOTC stat blocks with dumbed down spellcasting but I loved your first & second release and would love to complete my collection on the shelf. Thanks!

Love all of these books and plan to use them often, after the completion of the updates for MME 2 are complete and you begin planning for a fourth installment (if that's even on the table), could you guys consider a section of expanded Warforged? It would be interesting to see what you come up with and with all the new and impressive art being put into these, I would love to see some of your artists takes on warforged designs.

Hi, Bradford. Each book in the series is a unique compendium. There is no overlap between any of the 3 books in the series.

Is there a version of this with original 5e style stat blocks or is that just something you chose not to develop? I ask since I find the new stat blocks so hamstrung as to be next to useless.

There is a 1.05 download available with classic spellcasting (1.07 is the latest version and has the spellcasting changes). See Dragonix comment from March 25.

I'm currently running a campaign with Illithid. Which volume of MME would be best for that?

Thanks in advance!

Dragonix M April 08, 2022 7:55 pm UTC

All 3 books have illithids. Book 1 has 3 mind flayer variants and a wight version, as well as an illithid roper and darkmantle. Book 2 has an elder brain variant and an ulitharid variant, while book 3 has an illithidragon. So, book 1 probably but if you plan on a higher level campaign the other 2 would be useful too.

Does that mean that the POD is essentially "pre-order" at this stage and will be released with the updates later? Sorry if I misunderstand.

Whoops sorry. I thought this was for MME 1. Just realized this was for MME3. To answer your question earlier, yes, the PoD already has the new spellcasting changes as well as othet new 2022 format changes.. This is the final version.

UPDATE:
- An older (1.05) version with the classic spellcasting format has been uploaded in .rar format for those who prefer the classic spellcasting format.
- Please note that because this is an older version, some of the new features/actions that were added in the newer versions because of the spellcasting changes will obviously not be present in this version.

Awesome work! Really love that you incorporated more celestial stat blocks.

As a quick question: I noticed in the review video from Nerd Immersion that the Nonplayer Characters section used the older spellcasting feature as opposed to the newer one WotC has been using. Is that version of MME3 from the Nerd Immersion video available for download? I like for the humanoid enemies my party face to have the same style of spellcasting as they do.

Original electronic
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.
