White-Wolf has announced an upcoming RPG book to display most of World of Warcraft monsters and denizens to be up to date with the current MMO setting.  The World of Warcraft RPG: Monsters Guide is coming on sale very soon.  Additionally, a release date for both Alliance Player’s Guide and Horde Player’s Guide was revealed:

Hello, ladies and gentlemen!

Can’t find the Manual of Monsters? Feeling like it doesn’t do today’s Warcraft critters justice? Well, no worries, for in a few short months you can get your hands of the World of Warcraft RPG Monster Guide!

I’m pretty excited about this book, as I’ve wanted to do a new monster book for a long time. The Monster Guide is your one-stop spot for monsters in the WoW RPG. Here’s some publicity-type info:

Brave Azeroth?s Denizens
The undead Scourge dominates Lordaeron and Northrend. Servants of the insidious Burning Legion summon demons. Naga strike from the depths, and troggs burst from dark places beneath the surface. To carve your name into legend, you must match swords, wits, skill, and spell with these and hundreds of other creatures.

A sourcebook for the World of Warcraft Roleplaying Game?
? Over 200 monsters for use in your World of Warcraft Roleplaying Game.
? Many monsters suitable for player character races, such as blood elves, Dark Iron dwarves, naga, and pandaren.
? Includes descriptions and statistics for some of Azeroth?s key villains, such as Baron Geddon, Illidan Stormrage, Lord Kazzak, and Onyxia.
? Includes full rules on monster abilities, on improving monsters, and on using monsters as heroes and villains.

You heard it here first, folks! The scheduled release date is March 2006. As we draw closer to it, expect one or two previews of the ToC variety.

Speaking of schedules…
