  • Over a hundred new illustrations and maps
  • Over a dozen new magic items
  • 4 all new subclasses, and a slew of updated subclasses for play in Exandria and beyond
  • Dozens of new creatures and adversaries, amounting to 18 new stat blocks
  • All members of Vox Machina (and some companions!) have been given full stat blocks as well, perfect for bringing these adventurers directly into your games
