An all new 5e supplement featuring detailed NPCs and a focus on how to use their minions, with convenient, time-saving tips.

This is not the final cover art. For example only. The Necro-dragon is one of the masters featured in the book!

About the book:

One thing we’ve noticed as game masters ourselves, is the challenge that most GMs face: prep time. With busy lives like ours in mind, we wanted to create a book that has NEW content to help with that!  The idea with Masters and Minions was to develop some Bosses and their followers, but with a focus on how they use their minions – and provide some tips and strategies that any GM can “drag and drop” into a new or existing game. This new content will span levels 1 – 20, so the book will continue to provide you with new content as your players level up!
