Pathfinder Pawns: Bestiary 2 Box

Bestiary 2 Box Preview

There are a lot of great things about our Pathfinder Pawns sets, but one of my absolute favorite aspects of the line is that each new product allows us to go back and order pictures of monsters and NPCs that have never before appeared in illustrated form. In the case of our Bestiary products, this means we get new images of elementals, dragons, and other creatures that have various versions in the book, as well as reimaginings of outsiders and other creatures that either don't fit within the specific shape of a pawn or that we’d like to see depicted differently. Here are a few of the new pieces of art ordered specifically for the Bestiary 2 Box , which will be releasing soon!

Strategic Redesigns: Bestiary Box Preview Tuesday, July 10, 2012 When planning for the Bestiary Box, we knew there were a few monsters that needed new art. They either didn’t fit in the pawn format, they were monster variants, or they were just missing art. There were also a handful of monsters that just deserved new art. ... Sure, the old art was suitable for the Pathfinder RPG Bestiary, but we knew that sometimes it’s good to shake things up and do them over. There are many reasons to do...

Elementary Solutions: Bestiary Box Preview

Elementary Solutions: Bestiary Box Preview Tuesday, June 26, 2012 While I enjoy painting miniatures, and I'm a fast painter, I'll be the first to admit that painting minis is a time-consuming art. GMing takes a lot of time all by itself and not everyone has the time or talent to make minis fit the evocative stories their imaginations conjure. Also, minis can be expensive. Even with the release of the Pathfinder Battles minis line, we realize that sometimes cash-strapped GMs needed a...

Pathfinder #15—Second Darkness Chapter 3:

Massive Monster Muster

Massive Monster Muster Wednesday, October 1, 2008With sixteen volumes of Pathfinder and more than a dozen Pathfinder Modules under our belts we had a realization a few days back. That's a ton of monsters! Between Pathfinder's Bestiary and at least one new beastie in the adventures every month, we're looking at more than 100 never-before-seen nightmares, classic creatures, and fiendish foes over the course of the past year. Need proof? Take a look at a listing of the vast majority of new...

Pathfinder Chronicles: Into the Darklands (OGL)

Where do Driders Come From?

... Where do Driders Come From? Wednesday, September 24, 2008In the Second Darkness Adventure Path, we knew we wanted to use the drow as the primary antagonists. And of course, where there's drow, there's driders. Yet with the changes to drow society in Golarion (and in particular who and what they worship) versus their classic representation in the game, the genesis story for driders had to change. This gave us a pretty interesting bit of new flavor for both driders and drow. In (under?)...

Pathfinder Chronicles: Into the Darklands (OGL)

Denizens of the Darklands

... Denizens of the Darklands Wednesday, September 3, 2008Although the Darklands are a dangerous place, one rife with strange monsters and eerie hazards, they're not completely uncivilized. Of course—in a place where a nation of undead passes as one form of civilization and an empire of forgotten aquatic fish-man slaves passes as another, civilization might not be what visitors from the surface expect. ... Into the Darklands covers many different underground-dwelling races, providing...

Pathfinder #15—Second Darkness Chapter 3:

But Spiders Make Great Monsters!

... But Spiders Make Great Monsters! Monday, September 1, 2008We've had an awful lot of spider-themed monsters in the pages of Pathfinder over the past year or so. Enough that we've actually heard some complaints about how many of the new monsters are spider-themed. Furthermore, when we revealed that the third Adventure Path was going to revolve around the drow, we heard an even more vocal outcry against spiders. I'm not sure how much of the spider backlash is due to all the spider stuff...

Pathfinder #14—Second Darkness Chapter 2:

Plants from Space!

... Plants from Space! Wednesday, August 20, 2008As you've probably noticed from all the recent talk about falling stars and strange new worlds, Pathfinder #14 looks to the stars. With spacemen and moon monsters featuring so heavily in Children of the Void and the volume's other articles, it seemed appropriate to take this rare chance and dedicate a portion of the month's bestiary to the truly alien. Full-fledged, undisguised, world-traveling extraterrestrials, that is. Taking cues from our...

Don't Go Near the Water!

... Don't Go Near the Water! Monday, August 4, 2008So the waters of Riddleport harbor are alive with things that find people delicious. A pirate or smuggler who falls overboard generally has only a few minutes to get to shore or clamber back on board a ship before a shark, bunyip, reefclaw, or other predator catches his scent. In some cases, though, those hungry predators don't wait until someone falls into the water—they can flop ashore to hunt for food if necessary. One notorious...

Infernal Sorceress (Trade Paperback)

Ferretfolk!

... Ferretfolk! Tuesday, July 1, 2008Yes, you read that correctly. Ferretfolk. ... Under the auspices of Dungeons & Dragons, Gary Gygax created a number of iconic races, whether out of whole cloth or by combining a various different mythological and literary sources. So I guess I shouldn't have been surprised when, in his final novel, he did it one last time. At first, I balked—up to this point, Infernal Sorceress had been a fairly hard-edged and gritty fantasy romp. What were a bunch...

Imps and Pseudodragons

... Imps and Pseudodragons Monday, March 24, 2008 While Mike was working on the Guide to Korvosa, he and I brainstormed ideas for what kind of perils might be dwelling in the Shingles. We'd both seen plenty of monster-infested city undergrounds, but we wanted something more with Korvosa; we wanted a monster-infested rooftop. Sort of. We didn't want things like dire bats or manticores stomping around up there—whatever ended up in the Shingles had to be relatively small and agile. Nick...

Forge Spurned

Forge Spurned Friday, May 18, 2007In Crown of the Kobold King we introduce the dwarven deity Droskar, God of Toil. Droskar's following began as a reaction against the bon vivant trends that pervaded the dwarven society of their day, instating a dreadful dogma of salvation through endless toil and brutal subservience to the Dark Smith, as Droskar was often called. The dwarves became slaves to their own industry, producing heaps of weapons, armor, and gear to appease their dark god. The...
