Monsters of the Multiverse Update

Hi folks!

We wanted to give a quick update and clarification on Mordenkainen Presents: Monsters of the Multiverse for the Forgotten Realms campaign of D&D Adventurers League. 

Release Date Change

The book has been released one day early, and the races presented there are now available as a character option effective immediately. New race options are now generally available in the campaign with this release - the centaur, changeling, minotaur, and shifter! 

Updating Your Character

If you possess a character with one of the race options presented in Mordenkainen Presents: Monsters of the Multiverse, you must update your character to the new entry as presented in that product. This has always been the policy of D&D rules usable with D&D Adventurers League campaigns.

However, we also understand that a large number of playable races have been impacted by the changes. We ask that Dungeon Masters and fellow players with access to Mordenkainen Presents: Monsters of the Multiverse exhibit some patience as players spend some time updating their characters to the revised races' mechanics. 

The New Monster Stats

There are revisions to all of the monster stat blocks from Volo's Guide to Monsters and Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes in Mordenkainen Presents: Monsters of the Multiverse, as well as some new stat blocks. Published adventures playable in D&D Adventurers League with older versions of the stat blocks will not be changed; however, Dungeon Masters may choose to use the new stat blocks in their place as long as it does not significantly impact the challenge rating of the encounter. 

Official D&D Adventurers League adventures will start using the new stat blocks from this point forward. Dungeoncraft adventure designers will need to use the updated stat blocks for monsters appearing in Mordenkainen Presents: Monsters of the Multiverse starting with the next season (beginning September 1). 

That's all for now!
