Dungeons and dragons books are ridiculously cheap
Starting Strong at your First Dungeons & Dragons Game
Over the years, as the game developed, new methods were introduced to help streamline the process by which a band of merry adventurers might stumble upon some of these monsters. Instead of succumbing to the wills of the DM, a Challenge System was introduced in the game's third edition to help balance out the various encounters. This new system ensured a group of level one adventurers wouldn't stumble upon a monster they couldn't handle while continuing to throw the various chaff their way, which helped to build up levels in the early stages of gameplay. No longer would an annoying player have to face off against a Red Dragon if the DM became annoyed, and that was a good thing Over the decades the game has been around, the changes to the Challenge System have led to more and more monsters being introduced. Instead of simply sticking to familiar characters from mythology, many different types have discovered adventurers lurking about their dungeons. When a powerful spellcaster decides to avoid death, they employ necromancy to become immortal.
