This book contains dozens of new monsters found in the Inner Sea region—all invented specifically for the Pathfinder campaign setting! Some, like the gearsmen of Numeria or the moth-like star monarchs who serve the goddess of dreams, have been mentioned many times in Pathfinder Campaign Setting books, but others, like the alien vespergaunt or Rahadoum’s desert-dwelling whirlmaws, have only been obliquely illustrated or mentioned before. And some—like the mysterious and ancient veiled masters, and the disturbingly alluring fungus queen—make their appearance for the first time in print after debuting in Paizo’s office campaigns.

The Inner Sea Bestiary explores some of Golarion’s most unique monsters. Inside this book you will find:

  • New monsters ranging in challenge rating from 1/3 (such as the mysterious syrinx) to 25 (the powerful infernal duke Lorthact).
  • Three new monstrous templates: the exotic mind-draining vetala vampire, the blighted fey of Fangwood, and the twisted mutants of the Mana Wastes.
  • Five new 0-Hit Die races ready for you to customize as villains—or playable as characters if that suits your particular game!
  • Beings both benevolent and destructive—48 in all—ready to challenge adventurers in any Pathfinder game!

The Inner Sea Bestiary is intended for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and the Pathfinder campaign setting, but can be used in any fantasy game setting.

By Jim Groves, James Jacobs, Rob McCreary, Erik Mona, Jason Nelson, Patrick Renie, F. Wesley Schneider, James L. Sutter, Russ Taylor, Greg A. Vaughan

Yes! Numerian monsters! You sold me on that alone.

And then you threw in the Lashunta and- (heart... beating) the Mana Waste Mutants! And it's a template!!!!

This one is on my wishlist for sure.

There's a LOT of monsters in this book... and folks who've been wondering about monsters we've mentioned or illustrated but never gave stats to should be well pleased with the book, since that's a primary purpose of it—to stat up monsters we KNOW live in or visit the Inner Sea region, but as of yet have no stats.

That means that it's something of a departure for is in that these monsters are not things taken from the SRD or inspired directly from myth and legend. With perhaps a couple of exceptions (which should be obvious once the book is out), these really are "monsters invented specifically for Golarion" through and through.

Numeria. I'm going to die of happiness now. Bye.


Awesome! I can't wait for the new spawn of Rovagug, the creations of Numeria, and all the other monster-y goodness :)

I just hope that the cyber scorpion that is on the mockup cover art gets a write up. I have been a fan of that pic for quite a while.

Let's just say we didn't idly pick that image to serve as the mock-up cover.

No more so than the intellect devourer and the neothelid being in the Bestiary means that.

So which two spawn is it in the book? I'm guessing the one from legacy of fire and the giant beatle In Osirion.


so we are getting a Bestiary 4

The one from Legacy of Fire is already presented in Pathfinder #24. (There are NO reprinted from other sources monsters in this book.)

The giant beetle is dead. (All the monsters in this book are still alive in modern Golarion.)

Therefore... the two in this book are different than those two.

Note that this book does NOT replace "Bestiary 4." We could well still do a "Bestiary 4" at some point in the future.

BUT! Having it come out at about the same time as the NPC Codex was intentional. Folks who would rather have more monsters at that time will have an option.

That's something folks will need to wait to find out in print once the book's out.

Given their trope, I'm going to guess Realm of the Mammoth Lords.

Will they be statted as Behemoths? (which by the way is an amazing monster subtype)

No. Behemoths are different things than the Spawn of Rovagug. You can certainly look at them as "world-neutral versions" of the Spawn of Rovagug, I guess... but in Golarion... the Spawn of Rovagug and behemoths are two different things.

There WILL be some outsiders in this book... but no real plans to do more angels or azatas or the like here.

Are the Spawn of Rovagug new new or have they been mentioned but haven't been stated up before?

The Lashunta in the Innersea region!!!

Blighted Fey and Mana Waste mutants sounds like interesting template.

This book sounds awesome, I just can't get enogh monsters.

if my monsters are all lined up correctly and Nethys didnt allow cayden to spike my drink again, then you certainly can find one by Kyonin....

not anywhere on Golarion if my monsters are all lined up correctly and if Nethys kept Cayden from spiking my drink...

if my monsters are no all lined up and my drink was spiked then oh well....

Dark Archive

My next game will probable have a lot of steampunk and science fantasy elements, so I am more than thrilled about construct-like monsters and mutants.

Wait, this maxes out at CR20? Both the terrasque and Xotani are higher than CR20 monsters.

I wonder what Spawn you're using. probably not the Slohr, since that's a ghostbusters reference. if it's Ones that you've illustrated, then Probably Chemnosit, the Monarch Worm, and Volnagur, the End-Singer.

Unless it's new Spawn? Either way, Spawn are always welcome foes for high level campaigns. I presume they'll be as hard to kill as old 'rasquey and the Firebleeder?

An NPC Codex AND a new Bestiary?

...

Hey Liz, what's the maximum number of times I could type the word "want" in a single Paizo thread post? I don't want to try if its not going to be enough to show how much I want this book.

A Bestiary is a Bestiary, no matter where the title says the monsters are from, after all!

So the mockup cover is a promise that we'll get the Numerian Scorpionbot, right? ;)

Extremely curious about the vespergaunts.

Really eager to see more on Lorthact.

Also, shifting my Bestiary 4 hopes for dark/scary/ugly celestials to this book!

The Slohr is no longer a part of the Campaign Setting; we omitted it precisely because it's TOO much of a ghostbusters reference. To the extent that it could be deemed legally actionable.

It IS the two we've illustrated, since you guessed that pretty well.

No dark/scary/ugly celestials in this book. Those are more of a Great Beyond monster. There ARE some outsiders in this book, but they're ones that we've either a) mentioned already or b) have a stronger interest in the Inner Sea region, or c) both.

And the vespergaunt has been illustrated before... but we've not yet revealed that's what it is in print.


Awesome! Consider this added to my wishlist ;)

Finally get some Numeria based monsters, especially the scorpion bot one.


Any of the new monsters happen to be 0HD races that can be used for PC characters?

But whether or not they're something that can be used as PCs is only a question your GM can answer...
