You get a monster template! You get a monster template! Everyone gets a template


This book brings you a selection of some of the most imaginative and in some ways comprehensive template selection available to date. It doesn't matter if your players have seen everything this side of the Tomb of Horrors or are just learning to roll their first d20, this bestiary gives you the tools to alter any monster with a wide variety of templates. If you have Hero Lab, this is an absolute "must buy" product.

I couldnt believe how good it was, quantity and quality both


I normally roll my eyes at books like this - either goofy silly or otherwise unusable monsters, or just a blathering list of templates written with the passion of a tax return.

This is a wonderful book. The quality of the writing - and art! - is outstanding, the templates and content are interesting and *balanced*.

I added a scalding template to a minotaur and it had my players terrified.

This is the kind of book that gets your mind racing with new ideas and hooks!

Could be first party, for all I care


Like others have said, this is the single most useful third party book available to Pathfinder GMs. Absolutely fantastic stuff, well done, well executed, and accompanied with great art. Five most deserved stars.

Great book


Very useful to surprise your players with unexpected twist of old monsters.


Have 5 stars.

Seriously this is just really good for a GM. Its more than a bestiary or a compilation of templates, or an NPC book. Its all three. In fact its more considering that the templates are often very involved. This massive book effectively multiplies the entries in all the bestiaries and NPC codexes saving me a ton of trouble and making for incredible encounters.
