The Book of Extinction is a monster manual of animals rendered extinct by humakind, with real-world history alongside lore and game statistics for 5th Edition.
Bring three extinct species back to life in your D&D game with this preview featuring the ghost tiger of New Zealand (thylacine), the feathered tide that made America (passenger pigeon), and the ocean master of an exploding island (great auk).
These three monsters are the first of many in the full book coming to Kickstarter in 2022, like the Pyrenean ibex, Carolina parakeet, Yangtze river dolphin (and, of course, the dodo).
The biodiversity of our natural world has created the history, folklore, and mythology that power fantasy stories. We are at risk of losing them as the earth's sixth mass extinction accelerates, with more species likely to disappear in the next 20 years than in the last century alone. That's why proceeds from this preview will go to support conservation organizations working to preserve extinct species.

Listen to the companion podcast Making a Monster: Extinction for the strange and inspiring stories behind these new monsters: fossilized cyclops remains, the housecat who killed a species, the Nazi supercow, and so many more.
