World of D&D is really big and interesting, there are many things that I would love to see cataloged. And what better thing is suited for that than a lexicon?
But you can ask why in game? There are many sites with all the informations I could think about, that's true, but what if this information could also benefit our game experience? How? Really simple.
When we encounter monster for example Kobold, with our new hero, that just started to put his first step on Sword Coast, we really know little about that particular monster, but in time when we kill few, we are getting to know his weaknesses. So more kobolds we kill, our knowledge about them increases.UPDATE 1
What we have here? Of course the book with all adversaries. You can choose type of creature and specific race
. On the pages there are informations about that particular opponent, expertise shown as perk lvl, some overall lore as well as tactics for fight.Types are represented by icons:
Few words about perks. They come after killing exact numbers of enemies. Lets say:
perk lvl 1: 10 kills (easy monsters); 3-5 (elites); 1 (boss)
perk lvl 2: 50 kills; 15-25; 5
perk lvl 3: 100 kills; 50; 10
Perks for purpose aren't very strong even at highest level. Here can be quite a few combination. But overall they are just a small token of appreciation for hero.
You can see that the number of information is correct with perk lvl.
This thing is crucial specially against boss fights.
Lets take Akar Kessell.
Perk lvl 1 info: Akar is using spheres of anihilation that can daze hero, better to get out the way
Perk lvl 2 info: Akar sometime summon black ice giants, you can use them to your adventage when they explode near Kessell, freezing him.
Perk lvl 3 info: Akar at the begining of the fight calls for slaves, two beholders are supporting him, but when they are badly hurt they will turn sides and attack their master.
Thanks to that more people would know how to fight bosses and hard monsters, especially if the new content will be tougher.
That's for now. If you like the idea or you have better improvement share it here!
Sorry for typo and others
