absolutely perfect :) thank you very much, this fits what i needed for my plot perfectly!
@toastwolf: I'm going to hold off on the ooze-themed dragon for now. I'm currently working with a 3PP on a potential dragon-related product, so I need to save all my big-bad-dragon mojo for that project (as opposed to my itty-bitty-dragon mojo, as per the humming dragon, below).
@Dieros: I'm going to pass on a complete hierarchy of angels. With all the various celestial beings in the game, its easy to round out a celestial hierarchy with existing monsters. If you want angels, specifically, just replace the agathion, archon, and azata subtypes with the angel subtype.
@Goth Guru: There's already a Pathfinder version of the grim reaper in AP 48.
@Iracaedes: Here's a monk-like CR 25 devil:
Devil, Infernal Creator (CR 25):
This hairless, androgynous humanoid of immense proportions has a flawless, muscular physique.
Infernal Creator (Demiourgos) (CR 25)
Born from the thoughts of a powerful aeon whose mind became too self-centered, an infernal creator, or demiourgos, is a false god with the ability to create new planes of existence. The infernal creator rules over these realms as a petty tyrant, entrapping mortals, outsiders, and souls alike in its woeful creations.
@Mystic_Snowfang: Here's a CR 1/3 dragon familiar:
Humming Dragon (CR 1/3):
The wings of this tiny dragon beat so quickly, they can barely be seen.
Humming Dragon (CR 1/3)
Humming dragons are tiny dragons that eat fruit and nectar. Each can exhale either sparks or smalls puffs of vapor, though the dragon cannot use this effect to attack or provide illumination.
A spellcaster may take a humming dragon in place of an ordinary animal familiar. A humming dragon familiar doesn't provide its master with any special bonus, nor does it count as a magical beast instead of its normal creature type.
@Azten: A young fairy dragon (or pseudodragon) would definitely be a good way to make a more powerful version of a humming dragon. I statted up the humming dragon, above, because I couldn't find any existing CR 1/3 dragons.
@lordzack: Here's a template which can be used to make your fire elemental housecat:
Elemental Creature (CR 3):
The skin of this feline appears to made of molten brass.

Brass cats are feline creatures native to the Elemental Plane of Fire. They are 4 feet long and weight 120 pounds. Efreet often keep brass cats as housepets. In addition, at the GM's option, a druid may be allowed to attract a brass cat as an animal companion; treat a brass cat animal companion as a small cat animal companion with one fewer Hit Die than normal for its master's level.
Elemental Creature (CR +1)
(The CR adjustment for the above simple template might need to drop to +0 for a base creature with a sufficiently-high CR; I'd need to do some playtesting to know when and if that should be done.)
@Tzi: Here's a wingless, bird-headed devil:
Devil, Carrion (CR 7):
This bird-headed humanoid has rotting flesh beneath its black feathers.

Born from the souls of the foulest tengus, carrion devils closely resemble those crow-headed humanoids, though their rotting flesh is more putrid than that of a mortal being. Carrion devils are brutish thugs who feast on carrion, killing prey and leaving it to rot if preexisting corpses are unavailable. Carrion devils often attract barghests to share in their meals, posing a threat to the souls as well as the bodies of their slain victims.
Ever heard of the SCP Foundation? They're an online community that centers around a fictional organization of the same name. Think Bureau 13/Warehouse 13 mixed with every episode of The Twilight Zone/The Outer Limits. Everything on the site is fan-generated content.
The reason I bring them up is because a few creatures that I've read so far (in addition to the other anomalies therein) seem ripe for being written up. Here's two that caught my eye.
I have a few requests;
1. Illithids (including the brain slug take over other race thing)
How about a Troblin. An cross between a troll and a hobgoblin. With the best of both. caused by too many love potions and too much ale.
1. I did see the proto template which was cool. But there is an element I was curious for a take on. Illithids are actually slugs which, when they reach maturity are inserted into a host brain. It them burrows in and begins transforming the creature into an Illithid. Should the Illthid die, but the slug survive, it can be inserted into a new host. Alternatively these slugs could also be placed in some kind of breeding pool, where they could share their knowledge with other members of the clutch.
Perhaps a monster representation of the slug, which can grant the Protothelid template to a host creature. (I should have been more clearer)
But I want it to mainly be a ranged thing, shooting needle-like spines. Maybe with some kind of acid/venom thing on them?
And a bite too, since I'm thinking more of a mandible-styled mouth with lots of sharp teeth. Aberration type most likely.
And if it's possible I'd like for it to be able to burrow under ground :3
I'll be busy porting my roughly two-hundred existing monsters onto my page over the next few weeks; expect a corresponding delay in the creation of new monsters. However...
@HNNNNNNG: You'll find what you're looking for if you search this thread for hivespawn.
Might I ask... anything that we helped you invent in there?
I value my professional relationship with Paizo too highly to answer that question.You'll have to wait until the AP is released to find out what's in it.

If you have a concept for a new monster you'd like me to design and post in this thread, feel free to make a request. Give me a CR range and a basic premise for the monster. No humanoids, animals, joke monsters, or alternate versions of past/existing monsters, please. I'll try to stat up a half a dozen or so monsters over the next two weeks, should I get that many suggestions from my fellow members of the Paizo boards.
How about a Puzzle GolemIt has the ability to join with others to increase or split apart to decrease its size modifier.
Lets see what that makes lol
Interesting thought on the Puzzle golem. The piece spring up and form a killing machine lol PCs constructing a dungeons hmm sounds like fun.
I think this thread is awesome!
If you're still taking requests, I need a mage buster. CR 4-5, Jungle/Mountain Dweller with a Mayan/Amazon feel. Whatever it is, it was captured from the wild by Mayan Priests and trained/forced to guard their Blood God's Temple. Basically, this beast's job is to keep anyone from entering the Temple, which is located on a small island in the middle of a giant-can't see across it-river, right where a massive waterfall flows from a mountainous jungle paradise into a murky Everglades-type swamp. The area this is for runs rampant with magic, so feel free to either play that up or bust that up as much as you like.
If you're not still taking requests, then ignore the crap out of this post :P lol
