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

Is the fungus queen going to be a plant creature or some form of fey? Might seem like a silly question but with the povelik's that just dropped with asylum stone I have dark ideas for a fungus dungeon and am curious.

She's an extraplanar plant.

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

How many dragons, fey, magical beast, and plants are there?

Are there any creatures of the animal type?

Is the 5th 0HD race still a secret?


Wasn't the fungus queen originally just a succubus James statted up using the Fungal Creature template from Advanced Bestiary. I think I remember seeing something about it in his Sandpoint campaign log...


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Are am sure that the Fungus Queen will be more then a succubus with a fungal creature template now.

So what are the example creatures used for the new templates?

Might this something which could also be applied to the inhabitants of Tanglebriar (at least the wiki mentions dark fey as further inhabitants besides demons) - or would it be too far a stretch?

Would be nice for my KM campaign as my elven council member thinks TR is has to be the ultimate villain they will face (and who am I to contradict a player's statement *evilgrin*).

Kaijuu are larger than Colossal, for one thing. For another. A terrasque is all well and fine. But there are maybe only 3 creatures of its approximate CR and size. And most of them like the Terrasque are pretty strong flavor in Golarion (Spawn of Rovagug and all).

Why not use the Tessasque all the time? The same reason we don't use skeletons for every low CR enemies we need. They're different Monsters for different purposes.

That was the first point a fungus queen got used in the game, yeah. But I didn't stop at just putting the fungal creature template on a succubus... the fungal creature template is actually kind of dull, I think. The fungus queen in the encounter had a few other crazy powers as well, which will be revealed in Inner Sea Bestiary.

It could... but it's more about what's going on in Fangwood.

The fey in Tanglebriar are more likely to have the fiendish creature or half-fiend template on them.

Kaiju are still Colossal. It's been pointed out to me by our helpful local Bulmahn that the size category "Colossal" doesn't officially have an upper cap. We COULD do a monster with a space of 500 feet. But there's still some weird rules and effects that manifest if we do that... like how do you fit that mini on the battlemat? And doesn't it look ridiculous when it takes a five foot step?

I'm fairly certain that such a creature would no longer be considered a "mini" if it's taking up 100 square squares. Still I want to be able to fight it anyway. I don't want to be limited to the attack of the 50' whatever. I want to fight entire mountains! So I need rules that'll enable that.

And 5 ft. steps look ridiculous for gargantuan enemies too. And for fine enemies.


Thanks for your answer, James!

I have always wondered why it has remained a 5-foot step instead of being called an "adjustment" and allowing you to move a number of squares equal to the space you take up (or your speed, whichever is lower). Therefore 5-foot for medium creatures, 10-feet for large, etc.

If you want to battle a mountain so badly then fight A Aspidochelone :D

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Isn't that more of a Fish? or a Turtle? Aquatic anyway. There's a Spawn of Rovagug who is more mountainous if I recall.

Speaking of. What are the CRs of the Rovagug spawn in here?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Yeah, less then a week for subscribers to get there PDFs.

I would love to know what the CRs for all of the spawn are, well other then the Tarrasgue since we know that one is 25.

The fiendish template would work for the fey of Tangelbriar, but the half-fiend template would just change there type to outsider so that would defeat the purpose of having fey in there with demons.

Paizo Employee Developer

We did two Spawn in this book and they are CR 22 and CR 23.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Thank you Mr. Daigle for the information.

CRs 22 and 23 sounds about right since Xotani was CR 20.

I am guesing the spwan used will more then likely be Chemnosit and Volnagur since they are still alive.

Ulunat CR21 or 24
Chemnosit CR22 or 23
Tarrasque CR25
Kothogaz CR21 or 24
Xotani CR20
Volnagur CR22 or 23

I suspect that if Xoanti were to be stated today, he'd be a higher CR. He was stated at CR 20 in 3.5, where the Tarrasque was CR 20 as well.


Chemnosit? Isn't that a Nandi-Bear in one of the AP's?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

No, that would be Chemosit.

That's a decent house rule. Having a size Large ogre or troll make a 10 ft. '5 ft. step' would perhaps be a bit of a shock the first time it happens in combat.

Cheliax

Should probably change it to Short Step or Quick Move instead of "a 5ft step" with a value inside brackets based on the size.

Very good house rule.

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I like that rule. Put it'd be better done via the size categories with automatic quicksteps for each size, and only increase individual stat blocks if there's something odd about them (like giant legs, or being a gelatinous Cube) that makes a larger step not make as much sense.

I'd like to see Xotani restatted for PF. It's such a cool monster, it really needs a CR worthy of it's name.


Those monkey-footed goblins on the mockup image? What are those? Are they coing to be in the book?

Ugh, I can already see all those huge serpentine eidolons with extreme focus on their bite attacks and combat reflexes constantly making 15 ft steps to get plenty of AoOs against smaller enemies.

That's not a mockup; that's the final cover.

The monkey-footed goblins are monkey goblins. They're in the book.

Guess I'm a little too used to getting WAR-illustrated covers on all the books I'm looking forward to.

People won't have pdfs until next week. The email they are talking about is the "shipping in the next week" warning email. PDFs become available to subscribers once the books actually ship.

Joseph Wilson is right. They seldom tell you everything until it starts to ship. Historically its been excited fans that post detailed lists like that.

And in a way that kinda makes it fun for the community.


Can someone spoil the Lashunta?

Also, what is the name and CR of the giant mecha scorpion with gatling gun mandibles and a particle accelerator tipped tail?

Ulunat (CR 21 or CR 24)
Chemnosit (CR 22 or CR 23)
Tarrasque (CR 25)
Kothogaz (CR 21 or CR 24)
Xotani (CR 20)
Volnagur (CR 22 or CR 23)

I'd go for the following personally:

Ulunat (CR 24)
Chemnosit (CR 23)
Tarrasque (CR 25)
Kothogaz (CR 24)
Xotani (CR 24)
Volnagur (CR 23)

The Spawn aren't meant to be challenged by anything less than epic level foes, entire armies of lesser foes, and demigods! Their end gamers, pure and simple! If you can't stop one your gonna get NERFED and even if you DO STOP ONE at least SEVERAL THOUSAND of your guys are be making a trip to the Boneyard!

It could... but it's more about what's going on in Fangwood.

The fey in Tanglebriar are more likely to have the fiendish creature or half-fiend template on them.

I really like that stuff from your home games makes it into the products. It drives home the fact the you are one of us (and not, say, a company run by a profit-driven corporation divorced from its own products).
