    Mordenkainen Tome of Foes Lore

    Well I got the book finally and its a 10/10 on lore. Throughout the book is scraps of lore about Mordenkainen himself and his own snarky comments. There is many other Greyhawk easter eggs sprinkled in this book if you read it closely. I was skeptical at first, but this book is DENSE with updated multiverse lore and bestiary crunch. It pays homage to every major D&D game world and all through the lens of Mordenkainen's research. I would actually enjoy reading this book even if I never use a bit of it for game purposes.

    Get this book.

    I agree whole-heartedly... There are little nuggets to mine. I am sure you caught Ulaa (dwarves) and Bleredd (gnomes). I really like the lore for the Elves, there is so much to mine there as a DM and a Player.

    I love the snarky comments, and the book give a more deep idea of Moderkainen personality.

    While WoTC tried to gave the book a more "generic" style, Mordenkainen usually ends refenrencing Greyhawk first, and other planes later.

    Now, one thing i am noticing in the last WoTC products is that refer Greyhaw as a "war-ravaged" plane".
