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

NPC Codex AND a Golarion-centric monster book?!?

I love you guys (and gals) so much.

Do the Lashunta count as one or two of those 4 0HD races?

Other then then the blighted fey template are there any fey in this book?

So will there be a monster for every challange rating from 1/2 to over 20?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I am pretty sure I remember seeing elsewhere that Lashunta would be coming out as a 0HD race sometime this year. I also remember a mention that we would see more info on the Bone Sages as well. Perhaps in this product?

At any rate, I have all the bestiaries, so I will certainly be picking this up.

This looks awesome! It has great timing beside the NPC guide, includes stats for Lortahct, Spawn of Rovagug, Numerian robotic creatures, templates, lashunta, and more 0HD races, all of which I've wanted to see. I'm quite excited for this one. Is Yamasoth one of the other two powerful outsiders in the book, perchance?

Has it actually been said that the Scorpion is going to be in the book? I know they used it for the temporary cover, bu do we have any confirmation that anything other than the gearsman (which could be the 0 HD construct like race, or might not be) will be in this book?

A goblin-like monkey who capers a lot would be my guess.

Like a young chimp, but smaller and uglier.

So, Outsiders, Constructs (robot scorpion, gearsmen?), Possibly Aberrations, Undead, Magical Beasts (Spawn), Plants (Fungus Queen), Humanoids (lashunta), Monstrous Humanoids, and possibly Normal Animals...

Will there be any Fey, Oozes, Dragons or Vermin?

I'd guess the other way around. Back in the distant days of the first RPG Superstar, Clinton Boomer made waves with his arboreal, chaotic monkey goblins. Like regular goblins, but more inclined to think in three dimensions.

Monkey goblins actually came from the fevered imagination of the worthy Rob McCreary. Wonder if we'll see anything else inspired by RPG Superstar in this volume.

Nope.

Got other plans for Yamasoth later in the year.

Capering is just flavor text.

Monkey Goblins are talked about a bit in the entry for Mediogalti Island in the Inner Sea World Guide.

Every monster type and every CR from 1/2 to 25 will have at least one representation.

Any True Dragons?

Now I just need to find a miniature for the mecha-scorpion.

Did they ever make a toy of that mecha scorpion from Michael Bay's Transformers? Use that.

No. None.

When we do true dragons, I would like to retain our tradition of introducing five at a time. That, including the unfortunately mandatory intro page, is 12 pages of content. That's WAY too big for a 64 page book to handle. And it would give a false impression of import to this new category of true dragon that, until now, no one had heard of.

You can always use Star Wars minis if you can find them. Case in point: Huge Crab Droid and Walking Droid Starfighter. YMMV but they work.

But back on topic. This is awesome!! Two spawn is fantastic! I always did enjoy the Legacy of Fire support articles more than most and the one on the Spawn was great. Speaking of titanic monsters, any chance of a certain immense creature from Jandelay showing up? If not now, then maybe in the future?


Robots!?

That particular monster needs us to figure out Mythic rules first. It won't show up in this book as a result.

Correct.

Check Dungeons of Golarion for more info about robots.


This is good, because I've been campaigning for robot stats since... before Bestiary 2 I think.

The stats are already included in Dungeons of Golarion. It's a Sidebar and a Construct Subtype I think. They get intelligence and they respond differently to electricity and critical hits I think. Been a while since I read the book anyway and it's a complex template.

James Jacobs wrote:

but there will be creatures of the Dragon Type right? Like those flying Dragon mount things from Distant Worlds? though obviously not them exactly cause they're already detailed.

Yes, I knew about that. Thing is I'd like to see more stats for specific robots, rather than just rules for the creature type.

BEWARE!

So when can I expect to see the Flumph Bloodline in Golarion, then?

yes. As I mentioned above, all monster types will be represented at least once.

I think the BLIGHTed fey template sounds like something I would expect from the DARK imagination of Russ Taylor, but perhaps I'm just reading too much into it. :)

I got lured away from writing that template by a much more tempting choice :) And that's saying something!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting Subscriber

Let's see, if I recall the two living Spawn of Rovagug are the flying one and the autocannibalism-inducing worm. Sounds fun.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

So the Lashunta have seperate stats for female and male, correct?

CR 25! please be something other then an outsider.

Any Elementals or Giants? since these are subtypes I thought I would ask.

The lashunta males and females will have different ability score mods, but only one stat block.

The CR 25 creature is an outsider. In fact, most of the CR 20+ ones are outsiders.

There's a giant. I'm not sure about elementals off the top of my head but I don't think so.


Will there be any new familiar or improved familiar options in this book?
And I know this one seems kind of far fetched, but I have to ask: Will this book add anything to the various summon lists?

So will the Lashunta have art for each gender or just one will have a pic?

The tarrasque is a spawn of Rovagug, and it's a magical beast.

I believe there'll be a couple of improved familiars... at least one.

No normal familiars.

And no summon list adjustments.

Just one picture; a female. We'll illustrate a male lashunta some day, but not in this book, which is gonna be the baseline go-to place for lashunta stats.


This sounds like a pretty good book. Will there be a bestiary for other planets of Golarion's solar system?
