When they announced One D&D, the next edition that is beyond editions, I was skeptical. I started calling it 5.5e, because it was supposed to be “backward compatible.” However, now seeing the playtests, and the directions they are wanting it to go, it already does not seem to be backwards compatible, because of the different bonuses from races, backgrounds, how abilities work, etc. In that case, let’s just make the game the Sixth Edition, and be willing to change more.
This is the final article, the Monster Manual, find the Player’s Handbook and the Dungeon Master’s Guide for more.
There should be a given way to modify monsters for your game. There are a few moments where there is a variant of the monster, and so you can look and figure out how to turn other monsters in that way, but I wish it was more standard.
