The Tome of Horrors? But that’s been done already; why do it again? Well, actually it’s been done three times, but never like this. With the advent of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game as the newest torchbearer for the world’s most popular role-playing game, we need monsters—lots of monsters. That’s where The Tome of Horrors Complete delivers in spades. Starting from the original Tome written with the 3rd Edition rules along with the later releases of Tomes 2 and 3 for version 3.5, Necromancer Games was in the unique position to bring you updates of the classic monsters not formally released by the OGL, as well as, loads of new ones never sprung upon unsuspecting players before. So well received have these monsters been by the gaming community, that this open content has appeared again and again in game publications by other companies including updates to the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game system and even appearances in its own Bestiaries.

Why stop there? Never before have all three volumes been updated to the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game in their entirety and released as a single, hardbound tome. Monsters from the aberrant to the yellow musk zombie appear in this book, and everything in between—that’s over 700 monsters. But that’s not all; the appendices bring just as much to the table from templates to hazards to a treatise on poison variations in nearly 50 types of venomous snakes. There are also new feats, planes of existence, strange beings beyond mortal ken, and plenty of charts dividing the compiled monsters by CR, type, and terrain.

But it’s more than just that, because the entire compilation has also been updated to the Swords & Wizardry rules for release as another version of the volume. And in this version, the space freed up by the smaller stat blocks is filled by sample monster lairs and encounters with the hundreds of different monster types featured in the tome. Never before has this massive selection of monsters been updated and brought with these resources all together in one place for use in your own game. And before any Pathfinder players cry foul over the monster lair additions in the Swords & Wizardry version of The Tome of Horrors Complete, this lair information is included as a part of the PDF download.

So you’ve got the monsters—both from the original edition of the game and new—the templates, the multiple appendices on rules, planes, and the n’gathau, and a truckload of sample encounters and lairs to throw at your players, all together in one easy-to-use book. That’s why we call it The Tome of Horrors Complete!

Wait so ALL of the Limited Edition ones are actually signed then?? Including the Paizo Limited Edition copies too?

Got mine last week. It is AWESOME. Its 40 pages less than The World's Largens Dungeon, but about 1/2 inch thicker. All evil GM badness. I love it.


I'm in love with this book. No, really - I am.

There is something that made me wonder though; if the Tome of Horrors can summon any creature in the book, then how can the book itself be a CR20 creature? I mean, considering it can summon Lucifer himself, a CR39 creature?

Am I silly for thinking about stuff like this?

A higher level Demon can resist the summoning. I don't think Lucifer would stoop so low as to be someone's minion. Also, Lucifers stats are for when he is in Infernus. I don't think he is that powerful outside his own realm yet.

Allright, so make it a shipbreaker sea serpent then, it's CR25 ;)

That's why every Tome of Horrors is stored in a little chest holding a permanent anti-magic field.

Thief 1: "Hey, there's a box hidden under the wizard's desk."
Thief 2: "What's in it?"
Distant Voice: "NOOOO! DON'T OPEN THE BOX!!!!!"

Well, it is within it's own pages...

Not so much summoning itself so much as summoning another copy.

Each of which then summons Lucifer!


Will there be a point where Paizo has pulled enough monsters for the Bestiaries that this won't be as special anymore?

Shadow Lodge

Doubtful. There's over 700 monsters in this book, and Paizo has only pulled a couple dozen of them so far. So unless the next three Pathfinder Bestiaries largely concentrate on being Tome of Horrors Redux, I really doubt it.

After this book I doubt that Paizo will redo any of these monsters unless they really have a different take on them. Paizo has used many monsters from the original ToH books in their adventure paths and they will likely continue to do so with the Pathfinder version of this book. I am sure that their efforts in the future will go to creating new monsters.

Also, I hope they continue to put the monsters from the adventure paths and modules into the Bestiaries.

They could do one a year and have a hard time catching up at this point.

All of the Paizo developers will have The Tome of Horrors Complete as a resource book. There is no longer a need for them to convert any more of these creatures.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

For those who missed it in the olden days: CONVERSION DEATH MATCH!

An awesome show/thread pitting the ToH converted monsters against official WoTc conversions...

Shadow Lodge

I think we need a CONVERSION DEATH MATCH: PATHFINDER EDITION!!!


The original limited Tome of Horrors Complete (PFRPG) is still available at Noble Knight Games here. And let me say that NK has some very reasonable international postage options! (You get no pdf there though...)


And it's gone at NK too...

Has anyone else had any problems with the PDF being so massive it causes Adobe Reader to stall almost every time you go to the next page.
I don't have any problems with other near 800 page PDF documents I have.
My World's Largest City has 768 pages including color pictures and maps but is only 145MB, while TOHC is 818 pages is 359MB and the pictures are mostly line drawings.

Charles - I've optimized the PDF from FGG to a much smaller file size (with hints from the Paizo staff) and sent that on to Bill Webb. I don't know if he has been able to upload the smaller file (which is about 100MB to our download service.

The first time through I just didn't know what file size the picture files should have been reduced to. And as a side note - Grayscale art comes in at the same size as color art, all other things being equal.


Convinced my DM to let me run a modified Ferrous Giant... bahahaha even modified still having a blast with it!


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

It's 2013 now. I had never really heard much about the Tome of Horrors Complete, but here comes "The Witch Queen's Revenge" in the Reign of Winter Adventure path and it's filled with ToHC creatures. The book is currently unavailable through paizo and Amazon and eBay have them starting around $180.00. Eek. What do I do? Is the book coming back in stock? Can I find the creatures somewhere else?
