Everyone Deserves a Second Chance

Over the course of its decades-long history, fantasy gaming has produced countless monsters both terrifying and alien, some pulled from mythology and others sprung full-formed from the twisted imaginations of their creators. Yet as with any idea, not every monster can be a winner. Or can it?

With Misfit Monsters Redeemed, Paizo Publishing has taken 10 of the most notoriously bad monsters in RPG history—the lamest, most hated, and flat-out silliest creatures in the genre—and attempted to make them fun allies and adversaries for players and Game Masters alike. Each monster comes complete with updated statistics for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, lengthy ecologies explaining how the monsters behave and why they are the way they are, tips on how Game Masters can use them in a campaign, notes on how to fit the monsters into the world of the Pathfinder campaign setting or your own home game, and more.

    Inside this 64-page book, you'll find monsters such as:
  • Flumphs, everyone's favorite flying jellyfish monster, come from the stars to warn innocent civilizations of the cosmic horrors lurking in the darkness.
  • Disenchanters, the blue-furred camels who live to prey on adventurers' magical gear.
  • Flail snails, the magic-warping gastropods who weave slowly through the subterranean Darklands, writing epic poetry with their slime trails.
  • Doom-screeching dire corbies, the bird-headed terrors of the darkest caverns.
  • Lurking rays, the stealthy ambush predators that are really three manta-like monsters in one: the executioner's hood, the trapper, and the lurker above.
  • Adherers, those sticky, mummy-like monstrosities whose wrappings of flayed skin are the scarred relics of a horrible experiment by phase spiders from the Ethereal Plane.
  • Other loveable losers like the delver, the lava child, the tojanida, and of course, the infamous wolf-in-sheep's-clothing!

Misfit Monsters Redeemed is intended for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and Pathfinder campaign setting, but can easily be used in any fantasy game setting.

Great love perhaps, but not -that- kind of love. Otherwise my girlfriend wants to watch, and let's not give her any more ideas than she's liable to come up with on her own. :D

People, I've seen some of the rough cuts of Todd's work, and I can safely say that my love for him is of a sort that stands back behind layers of impermeable Plexiglas in a panic room, wearing a hazmat suit with a self-contained respirator.

It's a very, very careful love. With a Level 5 Clearance.

Wait... are we still talking about Dire Corbies?

Sutter developed an interpretive dance to fill in some of the blanks in the flumph life cycle and was kind enough to perform it for me at PaizoCon.

That's love.

Can I order mine but hold the Flumph?

Paizo Employee Managing Developer

You are only building yourself up for defeat. You cannot resist the power of the flumph.

You've sat there with a leafy head being all clever and everything, but one of my main goals in writing this piece was to make you ashamed you've ever bad-mouthed flumphs. Sure, I know that's a high bar to set, but I set it. I'm also confident that I'll at least partially win you over.


Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Okay, I gotta see this!


Awesome Daigle-Flumph! Personally I am greatly looking forward to this!

If he can raise flumphs above my ridicule, his Contributor tag should have Optimus Maximus added to it.


The real origin of flumphs? Just look at that illustration.

So will norkers be in Misfit Monsters II?

1) Norkers are HARDLY misfits. They're bad-ass.

2) Norkers are also not open content.

Norkers = hobgoblins, 1st level Barbarians with Natural Armor +7. In D&D 3.5 I used goblins instead of hobs, but Golarion goblins are too chaotic and unique to become armor-plated norkers.

Not if he's a player...

BTW, once this is out we should start a player kill forum, maybe here once the book is out. A place dedicated to those who may have lost PCs to Dire Corbies, the WiSC, and the dreaded FLUMPH.

The reality here is that the nasties in this book (+ bad rolls) will cause some PCs to die - they are going to need a place to go to rationalize how their wizard was pulverized by a rampaging Flail Snail, or how their evil 10th level Rogue Blackleaf was crushed (?) to death by a cluster (??) of Flumph (Flumpi???).

In any case they are going to need a place to go to deal. A place to get counseling for the tidal wave of tragedies which will befall scores of unknowing players.

I don't care what anyone says, I have always loved the Flumph. As long as they are still rather Flumph-ish I'll call this book a success! I also hope the art isn't changed *too* much, paint jobs and awkward overhauls aside, you can't change too much about these beauties!

As soon as I read Flumph, Adherer, Lurker Above and WISC I swooned!
Incidentally, were IS the trapper?


I hope giants revisited and mythic monsters revisited come next

The trapper's in the same chapter as the lurker above and the executioner's hood.

The write up about the book says there are only 10 monsters, but 64 pages. Does that mean each monsters gets about 6 pages to itself?

Yeah because it's a Revisited-ish book, where each monster gets 6 pages of backstory, ecology, Golarion-related fluff. Stats too, but that's one page.

Thanks. I don't have the other Revisited books so I didn't know that.

I have a notice with FRPGame for when this becomes available. I can't wait to see what you do with the flumph. Yeah, it's goofy looking but it's always been a lovable loser in my eyes. And there are some nice links in here. Linking the flumph to Lovecraft is rather weak but in some cases it's almost a requirement that any aberration must be inspired by something that gave that man nightmares.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Flumphs coming from the stars to warn of lurking cosmic horrors....ugh. I just heard my wallet gearing up to lose some weight. On a book containing flumphs and executioner's hoods. How did this happen?


I just saw the one new illustration featuring a flumph trashing some goblins. Go Man Go!


The cover image confuses me a bit. What's got its tentacle (or prehensile tongue, as the case may be) on Valeros this time?

That's a giant frog from a previously published adventure (name withheld to protect players). When the final cover is laid out and the book ships to the printer they'll update the product page with the actual art.


I saw a neat picture of a flumph trashing goblins on the blog. I can only hope they make that cover.

What could possibly be better than a lovable, wriggly flumph?

Well, if the flumph is on the back, we need something equally ridiculous on the front. That can only mean... the wolf-in-sheep's-clothing!

(I really should have had a macro for that name)

I heard the cover was going to be a photo of Colin and myself dressed up as misfit monsters.

Eh, the flumph would have made a better front cover and shove the even goofier wolf in sheep's clothing to the back. I'm sorry but I actually still have some respect for the flumph, they can make great comic relief if nothing else and can be a true test of a groups measure as heroes.

Player: What a second something that goofy is not trying to kill us and may actually help us out if we don't kill it?

GM: Yes, it's offering to guide you around the dungeon.

Another Player: I say we keep the snickering to ourselves and hire the darn thing. This could actually be entertaining.
