The world of The Witcher is one filled with mysteries to solve and monsters to slay, but that amazing world just got even richer thanks to R. Talsorian Games’ newest release. The makers of The Witcher RPG recently revealed a new supplement titled A Witcher’s Journal, and it adds quite a bit of new content to an already robust roleplaying experience. A Witcher’s Journal adds 33 new monsters to the game for GM’s to disperse and challenge their players, but it also contains everything you need to create Higher Vampires and True Dragons, which have their own life path systems so that you can either build another powerful enemy or turn them into equally powerful allies for your campaign. It’s not all about monsters though, as A Witcher’s Journal also adds even more ways for your Gamemaster to build out the world.
The new supplement contains a new Investigation system, which will allow your GM to create mysteries that can either be focused around monster hunts, murders, and everything in between. You’ll also get contract postings that can be used by the GM for new adventures, and with every monster added to the game, you’ll also get all the components and mutagen information you’ll need to hunt them down.
Even better is all the lore you get, as players will learn all about Erland of Larvik, who was one of the first Witchers and actually the founder of the Griffin School.
You can take a look at the official description below.
“Take a glimpse into the Golden Age of Witchers, when monsters roamed the world and you could hardly travel into the next town without running into a cyclops or a foglet! Through the journal of the founder of the Griffin School of Witchers, Erland of Larvik, you’ll encounter many new monsters; some of which haven’t been seen in generations.
