When Swords for Hire Development pitched the Villain Codexes to Outland Entertainment, we only envisioned three volumes, bringing us two evil-doers from each of CR 3–20. But villains have a way of foiling the best-laid plans.

Villain Codex IV: Monsters for Meddlesome Heroes draws from iconic monsters in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game (faerie dragons, treants, unicorns) as well as new favorites (gremlins and leshies) to expand upon the monstrous villains introduced in Villain Codex III: Enemies for Epic Heroes.

Villain Codex IV: Monsters for Meddlesome Heroes includes monstrous villains from CR 3-14.

Developers: Mikko Kallio, Jacob W. Michaels, and Mike Welham

Authors: Kate Baker, Kim C. Frandsen, Nikolai Geier, Jeff Gomez, Joshua Hennington, Jennifer Jones, Mike Kimmel, James McTeague, Matt Roth, Loren Sieg, Jeffrey Swank, and Robert Thomson

Excited to see this published. It's the last of Swords for Hire's original books, and we had a lot of fun doing it and the series. Lot of talented authors here, as well.

I was really, really happy with my villain for this volume. I got to indulge in two of my favorite tropes for her: Politely evil halflings and araneas!

People really exercised a lot of creativity for these characters, and I strongly recommend checking it out! I've found books like this especially handy when running a game without much prep—each of these villains is basically their very own adventure seed.

Having worked on this, I can say that some of the villains you find in there are REALLY well-done. Probably some of the best "mid-range" villains I have yet to see, at least of the monstrous variety. And a few are not the standard "evil" ones either, giving any GM something to choose from for his campaigns. :)

I already have plans for monsters from this book (just like previous books in the series) to spring on players of current Adventure Paths I'm running or prepping. There is a good mix here to fit many situations.

Disclosure: I wrote Smoke - A warg with plans to be much more than a mount.

I enjoyed developing these villains. The authors brought a lot of creativity to this volume.
