Why didn't they (Save for Wun Wun of all people/sascwatches) use fire against the wights?
I don't think they had enough time or organization to extensively bring fire to bear against the wights. The wights pretty much overran Hardhome in less than a hour I would guess.
Had they had any sort of area they could realistically hold and defend while they got their stuff together...than yeah they probably would have.
well a hardcover bestiary would appear in the fall 2016 slot, so that is too far out to announce.
although we are getting one this fall.
I don't necessarily have a problem with a lot of the mechanics of the new summoner versus the old summoner...I mostly have a problem in that they took a very freeform game system (eidolons) and straight-jacketed them into very specific types with fixed alignments and only certain options...while not providing a whole lot of variety for those types. At present, a lot of concepts don't function well or elegantly with the new eidolon. For the unchained summoner to really shine, we need not only more types but probably also more outsider/related types to work with.
Plus there's the fact that Superman has been active on Supergirl's Earth for over a decade, but neither the Arrow or Flash shows have ever mentioned his existence, even in passing.
Could always have it as an alternative universe, and have Kara cross over through some dimensional portal or something, if they really wanted a cross over while avoiding Superman-level powers in the CW verse

I just started watching Arrow and Flash...I got to say I have a lot of Faith in Supergirl based on those shows, since the same creative talent are involved.
I am worried how well the show will do on CBS. That station hasn't had a whole lot of genre entertainment, and what they have had is kind of bad (looking at you Extant and Under the Dome). And even though CBS owns part of CW...I am kind of skeptical CBS will allow this show to exist within the Arrow/Flash Universe.

Well I was sticking with mundane animals in that post. A Namazu would be cool, but it would be a magical beast I assume.
Kind of hoping we finally get some Catfish in this book. Way under-rated as dangerous animals. Would be great to get a Goonch or Candiru swarm in a bestiary.
Wonder how many monsters inspired by movies we will see? The Annunaki already give off a Prometheus vibe, although those guys are sort of inspired from the same source.
I wonder if we will ever get 0HD races for magical beast, undead, aberrations, and oozes. Also some more plant and monstrous humanoid based ones would be nice.
not impossible but I think Paizo prefers humanoid races (for gear reasons), plus they have a policy of undead = almost always evil, which means a player friendly 0HD undead race will probably never happen.
Speaking of 0-HD races, are there any that have been published that havent already made it into a bestiary?
Off the top of my head, we still need the Kuru, Triaxians, Skinwalkers, and Shabti in a hardcover bestiary, although not sure if Mummy's Mask made the AP cut off. and Triaxians might be hard to do as setting neutral.

I would guess, like mythic, most of the occult monsters can be run without needing Occult Adventures. Personally I am glad we are getting more mythic...I hate abandoned rulesets, and mythic monsters are one of the better things in the system
I know my friends constantly talk about such attitudes amongst our students, so I think something is there. But I also have to wonder how much of it is the "BACK IN MY DAY..." mentality that is sinking in as we have entered our thirties.

Let me just say that as a het cis male, I find your contributions in this thread and elsewhere really valuable. I learned a lot about trans people via this thread that I never knew before, and and it has made me aware of viewpoints or considerations I probably would have never thought about before. While I can totally relate to the idea of not spending free time on a thread that may bring up some unfun real life stuff you deal with daily, I do value your views and it has improved my outlook/conception of LGBTQ issues.
Actually, they might be reprinting the Grim Reaper from Carrion Crown. It's not a psychopomp (in Pathfinder lore), but a powerful undead creature representing the end of life.
Grim Reaper was in Bestiary 4 actually...I wouldn't put too much faith in judging the book by a temporary cover.
I am honestly really curious on how the Kitsch does in True Detective, since he is one of three main leads for this upcoming season
Well regardless if it is a Bestiary 5 or big Occult Bestiary, the fact were getting a hardcover bestiary makes me very happy. Thanks for the info MMCJawa:)
Well I would still express caution here...its possible there was a slip in terminology here and they really are just talking about the Occult Bestiary that we already knew was coming out. Mostly because I don't think they would have two different books named "Occult Bestiary" coming out within a short time frame, so we should probably not read TOO much into offhand comments.
(although looking at the Occult Bestiary thread, some of the comments by Paizo folks do sort of suggest a hardcover bestiary, reading between the lines)
