$49.95 SRP
SDI

Volo’s Guide to Monsters provides something exciting for players and Dungeon Masters everywhere!

Dive deep into the story behind D&D’s most popular and iconic monsters, including beholders, mind flayers, and the yuan-ti, as well as classics like orcs, gnolls, and kobolds. Gain access to rules and story for dozens of monsters new to fifth edition Dungeons & Dragons, such as the froghemoth, the neogi, and the vargouille. Open up new race options, including the goblin, the orc, and the firbolg.

The esteemed loremaster Volothamp Geddarm is back and he’s written a fantastical dissertation, covering some of the most iconic monsters in the Forgotten Realms. Unfortunately, the Sage of Shadowdale himself, Elminster, doesn’t believe Volo gets some of the important details quite right. Don’t miss out as Volo and Elminster square off (academically speaking of course) to illuminate the uninitiated on creatures both common and obscure. Uncover the machinations of the mysterious Kraken Society, what is the origin of the bizarre froghemoth, or how to avoid participating in the ghastly reproductive cycle of the grotesque vargouille.  Dungeon Masters and players will get some much-needed guidance as you plan your next venture, traipsing about some dusty old ruin in search of treasure, lore, and let’s not forget ... dangerous creatures whose horns, claws, fangs, heads, or even hides might comfortably adorn the walls of your trophy room. If you survive.

Explore the breadth of D&D’s monsters in this immersive 224-page volume filled with beautiful illustrations and in-depth lore.

TMNT HeroClix: Heroes in a Half Shell – Bebop

0 comments

TMNTHC2_Bebop
Greetings HeroClix fans!

Today we are kicking off previews of the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles HeroClix: Heroes in a Half Shell set. We are pleased to bring you a popular villain who, alongside his pal Rocksteady, frequently fumbles the orders of the Turtles’ arch nemesis, Shredder.  Making his highly anticipated HeroClix debut, please welcome the bumbling mutated warthog with a purple Mohawk, Bebop!

TMNT HeroClix: Heroes in a Half Shell - Bebop

With a sculpt based on the 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series, Bebop has the standard speed, attack, defense and damage symbols.  He can also shoot a single target up to five squares away.  If you wish to include Bebop on a themed team, he has the Foot Clan, TMNT Villain, Animal and Brute keywords as options.

Bebop has a solid set of combat values to go with his standard powers.  However, it’s his traits that really make him shine.  His first trait, So My Part Of The Plan Was What?, lets him use Willpower if a friendly character named Shredder is on the map.  Additionally, the trait lets friendly characters Shredder or Rocksteady use Enhancement, but only to boost Bebop or RocksteadyBebop’s second trait, Uh… Did I Screw Up Again?, allows you to place an Incompetent Idiot Token on his card when he misses an attack.  If he collects enough tokens, he can use a free action to remove them and heal two clicks of a teammate with whom he shares a keyword.

Bebop’s power set sees him start as a ranged attacker with Running Shot and Energy Explosion. Then he switches mid-dial to a close attacker with Charge and Super StrengthSidestep and Regeneration on Bebop’s last click let him slink away to safety or heal to prolong a fight.

At 80 points, Bebop leaves you with plenty of room to include teammates like Shredder and Rocksteady, both of whom can benefit from Bebop’s So My Part Of The Plan Was What? trait.  Don’t be frustrated if Bebop misses his attacks as it will allow him to collect Incompetent Idiot Tokens and potentially heal his teammates.

Thanks for reading!  Join us again as we reveal more exciting characters and highlight strategies and team builds from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles HeroClix: Heroes in a Half Shell set.  Until then, keep calm and shred on!
