What is Tome of Beasts 3 Lairs?

We’ve been talking a lot about the monsters going into Tome of Beasts 3, but what about ways to use them in your world? 

 

Enter Tome of Beasts 3 Lairs!

 

This book is full of 18 (now 21 with stretch goal unlocks!) one-session adventures between levels 1 and 11. Each adventure features one to four creatures from Tome of Beasts 3 and comes with a full-color 1-page map (by Jon Pintar, the cartographer behind the battle maps of Scarlet Citadel, Empire of the Ghouls, and many others). These adventures are great for introducing some of the Tome of Beasts 3 monsters into your game, and they’re ready to play when your players are—minimal prep required!

Lifelong gamers and miniatures fans, John Popson and Ed Cortez started making miniatures around 8 years ago with a bunch of homemade casting equipment. Over the course of 9 successful Kickstarter campaigns, they upgraded their facilities to include state of the art 3D printers as well as full metal and resin casting capabilities. Their most recent addition was a plastic injection setup—which will be put to great use creating the miniatures that are part of the Tome of Beasts 3 Kickstarter!

 

The Effincool Miniatures team is currently running their own Kickstarter campaign to create even more miniatures for their Kobold Press Bestiary line of miniatures. Their main objective is to fund the creation of 8 new catfolk miniatures as part of their Iconic Races line, which currently includes 4 bearfolk and 4 ravenfolk. Like the bearfolk and ravenfolk miniatures, each catfolk miniature will represent a core character role: healer, spellcaster, warrior, rogue.

 

In addition to the catfolk miniatures, Effincool is re-tooling their previously released Kobold Press Bestiary miniatures to plastic, many of which are available as add-ons in the Kickstarter. If you love miniatures and own Tome of Beasts, Creature Codex, or Tome of Beasts 2, be sure to check out the Kickstarter!
