"Something's back there!" he screamed!

I turned to look, and behold the incarnation of my fear staring back.

The Illithiad
is a visually stunning tome that details important information on mind flayers, their mental powers, and their dire plans to control the multiverse.

This "complete book of illithids" covers:

The anatomy and physiology of the mind flayer.
The terrible truth about the mind flayers life cycle.
Illithid-kin, undead mind flayers, and new 'flayer-kin monsters.
A balanced look at illithid psionic powers.
Illithid origins, history, theology, psychology, and society.
A detailed description of a typical mind flayer community.
Unique mind flayer psionic abilities and items.

The Illithiad is the third volume in the popular MONSTROUS ARCANA game accessory series and is indispensable to DMs who want to add these terrifying creatures to their campaigns. The Illithiad supports the mind flayer adventure trilogy: A Darkness Gathering, Masters of Eternal Night, and Dawn of the Overmind.
