Talk:Creature Manual (5e Equipment)

This feels a bit broken. The books are purchasable in 5e - Volo's Guide, specifically, costs 50 gold pieces. That is 5 times the cost of this item, and it is stated in Tomb of Annihilation that the DM may read out the flavor text for each monster in the book, but there are no stat-blocks in-game. The idea of an item that's 5 times cheaper is bad enough in my opinion, but also putting in statistics? I feel like that breaks a really, really fun part of the game: researching and studying enemies to find their weaknesses over time, rather than just playing match-the-damage-type-with-the-monster. I think something similar, but less OP could be added. For example, making it a handbook for ONE specific monster which hints to its possible weaknesses. Might try to do it myself later if nobody else does. --- Suracha (talk) 09:30, 6 February 2021 (MST)

Yeah, this page is a bit generic as is. I would implore you to change this page as to make it less strong, if you see fit. We have enough variants as is. --SwankyPants (talk) 12:02, 6 February 2021 (MST)
