Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but evil is in its heart!
Xanathar – Waterdeep’s most infamous crime lord, and a beholder to boot – catalogs lore about adventurers and ponders methods to thwart them. Its twisted mind imagines that it can eventually record everything! You’d be shocked to discover just how much he knows about you! Yes, you, adventurers! Xanathar offers bizarre observations about whatever its eyestalks happen to glimpse. Pray they don’t come to rest on you!
Assembled here in Xanathar’s Guide to Everything is new information on adventurers of every stripe. In addition, you’ll find valuable advice for those of nefarious intent who must deal with such meddling do-gooders, including Xanathar’s personal thoughts on how to dispatch anyone foolish enough to interfere with his business dealings. Alongside observations on ‘heroes’ themselves, the beholder fills the pages of this tome with his personal thoughts on tricks, traps, and even treasures and how they can be put to villainous use.
Xanathar’s Guide to Everything introduces complete rules for more than twenty new subclasses for Fifth Edition Dungeons & Dragons, including the cavalier, the inquisitive, the horizon walker, and many more. Also included are dozens of new feats and spells, as well as a system to give player characters a unique, randomized backstory.
