Monster Manual 2

From the core rulebook presenting hundreds of monsters for your D&D campaign, here's our second set of wallpapers to show off these monstrous denizens -- this time featuring the finalists of our Creature Compeition!

Classic monsters such as centaurs and frost giants make their first 4th Edition appearance in the Monster Manual 2. In addition, this book includes scores of new monsters to challenge characters of heroic, paragon, and epic level. Plus, to find out what monster you are, take the "What Monster Are You" Quiz.


Loathsome insects with a taste for bipedal prey, ankhegs burst from hiding to seize the unwary. An ankheg moves with great stealth, but might be detected by the faint whiff of acid dripping from its twitching mandibles.

Frost Giant

Frost giants live in bitter northern lands and among frigid mountains where they subsist by hunting and raiding. They are brutal, superstitious, and murderous creatures among whom only might makes right.

Adamantine Dragon

Adamantine dragons are tacticians that supplement their melee abilities with blasts of thunderous power. They can be found anywhere, but prefer to lair in huge underground caverns.


Remorhazes use their intense internal heat to burrow through the ice and rock of their arctic homes, preying on any creatures they come across, even giants and dragons.
