Thank you!!!

Just ONE more!!!

If anyone who was good enough to post a review here on paizo wanted to post over on EnWorld as well ... I'm not going to say that the Kobold Gods will smile on you, but, well, it does seem like the odds for such a thing would have to increase considerably ...

Speaking of reviews, please also consider posting a review over on EnWorld - we only need a few more reviews for the Tome of Beasts to be officially ranked.

Kobold Playtest: Macabre Substitutions in Barovia

Very cool article!

"This summer, I decided to run The Curse of Strahd for my three players. The party consists of a fighter and a pair of rangers. Aside from low-level ranger spellcasting, the party has almost no access to magic. The intent of this campaign is to set a tone of truly Gothic horror from the first encounter on. As this is a sunless, colorless, and soulless land, I needed monsters that created paranoia, fear—and, ultimately, horror. Part of this lies in the deadliness of encounters when there is no healing magic; the other part lies in using effective monsters.

At the same time as we initiated play, my Tome of Beasts arrived! Upon reading the stories of several monsters, it struck me that I could piece them together in my own version of Barovia as they are perfect for creating Gothic horror. The monsters are: the mylings, the beggar ghouls, and the drowned maiden…"

Read all about it!!

Love to see a couple reviews for this bad boy!

The nice thing about The Book of Lairs is that there are no stat blocks within - the various encounters only indicate the name and quantity of a given monster.

So, even folks that only play Pathfinder could still use this book - simply use the Pathfinder stats for any monster listed that has Pathfinder stats, and then either wing it (if you also have the Tome of Beasts book) or replace that monster with something similar.

Bottom line - there are a lots of very cool encounters/lairs (each with awesome map of said lair!) in this book and Pathfinder fans can still get almost as much fun from this book as 5E fans! :)

What does it take to get a review put up on EN World?

From what I can tell, you just go to the link above and then click the "Write Your Own" link just under the 93% and the green thumbs-up dice graphic. You do have to have an EnWorld acount though.

I know you said that all the monsters in the book are from the various midgar setting books and adventures that are already released for pathfinder, but if there is the slightest chance you consider compiling all those monsters in a single book aimed at pathfinder GM's, i will let you know that i would gladly buy that book.

Hey there!

Actually, not ALL of the 400+ monsters - many are completely brand new!

There's always a chance that Kobold Press will put out a Pathfinder version of this book, but I don't know of any immediate plans to do so ...

Having said that, have you checked out the Southlands Bestiary for the Pathfinder RPG? Many of these creatures are also featured in the Tome of Beasts.

And, best of all .... if you pick up the awesome Tome of Beasts Pawns you'll get most of those Southlands creatures in the set!

Nice review of the Tome of Beasts over on EnWorld.

About those 4 page segments, IIRC a RPG print guy said that you have 4 of those 4 page segments in a larger sheet of paper that they fold into the various pages of the book. But I could be miss-remembering whi exact worlds also.

I was also luck enough to find a Battle tech book that had back to back blank pages a few pages apart. These printing oddities vary rarely make it out of the publishing house as the printers catch them and destroy the copies before they leave the shop.
That reminds me I should have it appraised.

Like I said, those are called signatures. They do indeed get folded down, bound, and then trimmed into the final book. The actual size of the signature depends on things like press size, print run, etc. 8-page signatues are pretty typical for a standard offset print run. Larger sigs are also common in larger print runs and huge presses. 4-page sigs (i.e) 2 printer-spread pages on an 11x17 or 12x18 sheet, front and back) is more common with smaller print runs - often on digital presses such as are used for print on demend services.

So cryptic!

Now that's a loaded question, Alex.

I just spent a few minutes looking through my 3PP material, and there's an interesting pattern (which may just be publisher bias, so don't take this as a given): products cover a range of pages up to about 12, and then suddenly jump to about 30 (I got one hit of 28 pages, but most were 30-40). And then you suddenly jump to 64 pages.

Now, even with my admittedly dire knowledge of publishing, I know that a print book must have a multiple of 4 pages in the interior, and they commonly get bundled in groups of 8 (which is why you get books with page counts of 32, 64, 96, 128, and so forth, and there's a word for it and I don't know what it is), so the 64 page jump is a viable print product (I'm not saying you can't make smaller print products, but they're not as common).

So, a "small pdf", to me, is anything of fewer than 32 pages, and is pretty much always going to be less than 13 pages.

A few examples: Ultimate Relationships from Legendary Games is 8 pages long, including covers, and I consider it small. On the other hand, Ultimate Charisma from Everyman Gaming (I think you might know who I mean), at 68 pages total (hey, look, 64 interior pages), is not small. Middle ground, Mythic Monsters: Demons (the first Mythic Monsters book), by LG is 30 pages long, but I have to actually trawl through my collection to find The Genius Guide to Feats of Multiclassing (21 pages), or Dodeca Weather (20 pages), and it's then really hard to find anything more than 12 pages long.

I'd say a rough way to figure out if it's a "small PDF": if, as a publisher, you're not caring about page count for the purposes of possible print runs and it's fewer than 32 pages long, it's small.

In printing, those are call 'signatures'. Typically books are printed in 4-page, 8-page, or 32-page signatures.

So, the big question is ... who will be the first person to post a review? :)

Other than dropping a live grenade on the floor, what was the point of this? Hmmm?

Hey there - dropping a grenade, live or otherwise, was definitely not my intention!

I LOVE Paizo and Pathfinder, believe me. I also feel there are some pretty positive things in 5E, and intend on getting into a 5E game at some point soon, but I think my heart will always belong to Pathfinder :)

I posted those articles solely because I found them to be interesting - some very insightful things, as well as some things I felt were pretty biased. But regardless, they seemed like they might be worthwhile reading. Nothing more or less than that, honest !

Woo Hoo!

Tome of Beasts is out in the Wild now! :)

SO much work, energy, blood, and sweat went into these products, it's awesome to see them featured here on Paizo.com!!!!

Speaking of the Tome of Beasts Pawn Collection ... even if you only play Pathfinder, this collection of 300 pawns is still perfect for you. There are many creatures from the Southlands Bestiary, Midgard Bestiary, various Kobold Press adventures etc. Plus, they can always double for other creatures - who doesn't need 300 new pawns? :)

You mean your printing in portrait, not landscape, right?
