Woe to You, O' Earth and Sea!

Saturday, September 14, 2013

From Cthulhu to nosferatu, clockwork dragons to twisted fleshwarps, Bestiary 4 comes packed with more than 250 beasties from lore and literature to add to your game. Bestiary 4 releases October 2013, but for now, the beasts come with wrath to your desktop in this new wallpaper.

Let him who hath understanding, reckon, yo.

Great picture. Is there a version without the writing on it?

The Iron Maiden reference is killin' me! Brilliant!

Wouldn't 'Let he who hath understanding' be better?

'Him' suggests a reference to a specific indvidual whereas 'he' is used more generically.

tin hat on:
Aw, c'mon. I know it's a quote from the Head-Of-Opressive-Murder-Family Jimmy Bible. 'He' still sounds better.

Silver Crusade

It's also a quote from the Iron Maiden song "The Number of the Beast"

"Its number... is six hundred and sixty-six."

Or six hundred and twenty six. It depends on the manuscript. Lots of ways to get the letters to add up to Nero! Fun times in the ancient world.

Uh, oh. You misspelled Cthulhu. That's like leaving a necessary sigil off a protection circle, no?

There is no correct spelling, since his TRUE name can't be spoken by mortal tongues. The misspelling is inevitable because there is NO correct way of spelling it.

For those asking to see the art w/o any text, I highly recommend following "Pathfinder Art" on Facebook. They post "clean" cover art to pretty much every book that Paizo publishes.

Damn! Your right, I totally forgot about that. Been following it for ages, didn't think to check. Doh!

Not to mention, if they used the correct spelling, I suspect that H.P. Lovecraft's estate might throw something even more terrifying than the great Old Ones at Paizo... Lawyers!!!!

That's why the first printing of TSR's Deities and Demigods contained the Cthulhu mythos, and the subsequent printings did not!

Actually, Cthulhu himself is in public domain, so Paizo (and anybody else) can use him freely. Several non-Lovecraft deities of the Mythos, however, aren't, and IIRC including them got TSR into hot water with author estates and led to dropping the matter entirely from further printings.

nice try but if that argument was valid it would only be valid in the story amongst the other fictional characters. Cthulhu in fact does have a proper spelling, and that is how H.P. Lovecraft spells is, as it is his character

I think you quoted the wrong guy here...

I see a lot of iron maiden fans here lol. this is actually much older than iron maiden though. its from the book of revelation. im surprised paizo used it to promote their product, seems kinds distasteful to me


2 people marked this as a favorite.

I know where it's from. I'm older than Iron Maiden. And using Iron Maiden's version of the reading as the gimmmick wasn't distasteful, IMHO. I think it's kinda neat that it shows a relationship between gaming fans and metal fans.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Agreed.
Maiden for the win.
I love to see the random metal references here in the blog.
Brings back good times from so long ago.

Well the blog post is a wallpaper of the already released book cover. How much more is there to discuss, that can't be discussed in all of the other threads?


First this and then the "Powerslave" comment on the Paizo Facebook -- love it. Incidentally, my brother just saw them in Austin -- first time in years we haven't gone together. Apparently I missed a hell of a show!

oh its distasteful, just not to you and probably not to many other metal fans. someone who believes in the book of revelations wont see it like you do though. im not here to start an endless debate about the bible though, im just surprised paizo would use it to market their book

Speaking as someone who believes the book, I think it's awesome.

I too went there before I recognized the Iron Maiden reference, I only caught that when I got to the comments.
