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.

It's like Paizo's own Fiend Folio! Is this coming from Paizo UK?


None will survive the flumpocalpyse!


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Weird & awesome! I love the Revisited books so far, but I can't wait to see this Redeemed entry. The goofy misfit monsters need some love. :D

Osirion RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

If it were the start of April I'd be worried, but since it's February then all I can say is FLUMPHS!!! :D


Hurrah!
And I have maintained for some time now that the eldritch tentacled horror that is the flumph is a relation to Earth's Cthulhu.

What are the rules for reinventing? How much stuff about the creatures are the authors allowed to change?

Serious. Book.

You should get Rich Berlew to illustrate the flumph. ;-)

I personally vote for Hugo. (I'll also note that I don't condone the treatment of flumphs in that comic.)

So, just the Pf update to the one in Dungeonscape, in other words?

I notice that trying to redeem the nilbog is a bridge too far, even for Paizo, despite what they did for goblins.

Did the wolf in sheep's clothing make the list before, or after, Carly Fiorina's widely-mocked campaign add?


Doom! Doom!

First thing Hugo needs to do is create a comic about an island of misfit monsters, and have them singing a sad song, when visitors from the Flumph Liberation Front come and promise that they will get to be a part of Lamashmas...

Andoran Contributor, RPG Superstar 2012

I can only hope the al-mi'raj is in More Misfit Monsters Redeemed.

LOL. Before, but you just gave me some delightful ideas to add to the outline...

WOW that was a weird commercial.

Some monsters are just dumb, all the way through.

I would also put the gorilla bear on that list. And probably the gorbel (he ALMOST made it on there.) And the lava child too, for that matter. I'm VERY CURIOUS to see how THAT one turns out...

The al-mi'raj is actually a real-world mythological creature. One of the requirements of this book was that ALL of the misfits had to be things that were invented whole-cloth for the game.

Oops. Bestiary 3, then? :)

And I was all ready to name the Island of Misfit Monsters, Jezîrat al-Tennyn.

Now I wish I had more money, and a checking account.

I have it on good authority that the lava child will be completely full of WIN and AWESOME and all forms of smiley goodness.

But you'll still want to slap the taste right out of his creepy smiley clown mouth.

Is that what the Qadiri call Flyspeck Isle?

Not really. The new job starts out at less then what I was getting on unemployment. And the checking account will only happen when th credit union decides to let me have one.

You're not working full-time, then? Maybe I misunderstood when I first read you got your job.

This is one of the most awesome things I've ever seen.

I just want to know who's/what's going to be on the cover. The Flumph might be a bit too obvious a choice.

Maybe not. I think it means Dragon's Island. Maybe one of our Arabic speakers will weigh in.

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

2) Norkers are also not open content.

Paizo Employee Developer

I have a great norker story, but not in this thread.


HAHAHAHA

I remember this thread! I was totally calling for this book to be made!

Now, I return to hoping they heed my call for a grimoire!

Thanks Paizo!

Also, where's the thought eater?

Silver Crusade

Oh wow.

Please let the lava children still look like Alfred E Neuman.

Seriously though, if you can make me take flail snails seriously, that'll be one hell of a feat.

RPG Superstar 2010 Top 32

I'm surprised so many of these misfits are open content. Who on earth OGLed the dire corby? Lava children? Wolf-in-sheep's-clothing? Our friends at Necromancer?

This announcement inspired me to pull out the ol' Fiend Folio. I thought I'd see what other unloved creatures of yore might appear here. I think this whole book could have been done just from the entries in A-D. But that would leave out classic goofballs like the gambado or the mantari. The original Fiend Folio was an ... interesting book.

Yep. Necromancer got their foot in the door while the getting was good, and let a lot of the more obscure critters out of the barn before the farm changed hands.

It's one of the reasons I love the Tome of Horrors series.
