Word of Wizards - Manual of the Planes Art Gallery
Manual of the Planes Art Gallery
Trying to imagine and describe otherworldy planes can be a daunting task if you are cannot grasp the concept that a block of text can only tell you so much. Although the fluff is heavy for this book, a little bit of illustrations does help to stir the imagination alot.
This art gallery contains landscapes, monsters and suitable character potraits for DMs and players alike who are making the journey through the planes.
It is surprisinging to see one piece of artwork reused in the book (the one from the Exalted Deeds in 3.x) but most of them are of pretty inspiring and good quality.
If anything, I would highly recommend you to save a copy of the cosmology map. It's useful as a visual aid of understanding the cosmology.
