From the team that brought you the platinum-bestselling Feywild Companion, comes the next evolution in swarms!

This one-of-a-kind bestiary brings you never-before-seen creatures as well as their swarm equivalents. But these aren't just run-of-the-mill swarms! Each creature has been given a minimum of two pages to help you understand their lore, their habits, their tactics, and why they swarm. Many of the swarms feature differences from their base creatures to keep your party guessing. Plus, we've got tons of bonus material and instructions on how to make swarms that are balanced for fifth edition.

This book includes:

  • Over 70 brand new creatures and their associated swarms!
    • All the creatures swarm, have swarm-like abilities, or summon and command swarms
    • Creatures and swarms of all sizes, including gargantuan!
    • Creatures and swarms for all environments!
  • Over 140 stat blocks ranging from CR 0 to 30, including new mechanics, traits, and actions!
  • Over 150 adventure hooks to help you integrate the creatures into your campaign!
  • 4 new demiplanes to explore, including a demiplane made from books!
  • Bonus material including magic items, lairs, variants, templates, diseases, factions, and more!
  • Instructions on how to create swarms that are balanced for fifth edition!
  • Tips and tools to enhance the swarms you create, including making symbiotic swarm hosts!
  • 50 wild effects!
  • 80 VTT tokens!
  • Printer-friendly version!
  • Digital version is fully hyper-linked, bookmarked, and indexed!

Creatures

An entire hoard of gold coins moving under its own power. Writhing insects that cover every surface of a passageway. Sentient crystals that merge into a giant sparkling creature. There are many forms a swarm of creatures can take. But why do these creatures come together? What makes them different? Who controls them? The answers to these questions and more await you inside these pages!

Stat blocks

The wide range of creatures inside Swarms of the Multiverse offer multiple options for every environment, including Arctic, Coastal, Underwater, Underground, and all the rest! Their sizes also vary to give you Tiny options all the way through Gargantuan. Whatever the occasion or location, there is a creature (and swarm) waiting for you inside this book.

Our painstaking editorial process means that you are going to get error-free stat blocks with easy-to-read phrasing. You'll have no trouble reading these blocks and quickly finding what you need in the middle of an encounter. Plus, we've got multiple indexes in the back of the book to help you find a creature fast.

Demiplanes

Swarms of the Multiverse is true to its name, bringing you multiversal connections to various planes as well as 4 brand new demiplanes. Whether adventuring in any environment on the Material Plane or taking an extraplanar journey, this book has you covered.

Options

We analyzed all of the official fifth edition swarms and base creatures so that we could create step-by-step instructions on how to create your own swarms. This information goes well beyond what you could get from comparing two stat blocks since we used it to make all of the swarms in this book. We answered questions such as "How do I handle recharge in a swarm?" and more. Plus, we've included a bunch of options to flesh out your swarms, everything from new actions to swarms as hazards. 

Extras

Since we gave our designers a lot of room to create, many of the creatures in this book are accompanied by bonus material. Some creatures include related magic items. Others include a faction, a disease, or variants. Plus, we've got a massive table of wild effects that you can use with two of the creatures in the book or independently for some excitement at your table.

This is an excellent book, I can safely say this is well worth the money! A well structured and robost way to make swarms, I have never really made my own monsters before so it guides you through the process well. As for the example monsters you [...]

Not only does this provide me with oodles of swarms inside the book itself but for me the template/guidance for creating swarms of almost anything is delicious. As a bonus I get a handful of new creatures. I love anything that takes current content and [...]

Format
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.
