Thanks, that's what I figured. I admit I didn't phrase it right in the post Kerrilyn referred to, though; it should have been "less" instead of "no". It happens to me sometimes, heh...
I haven't seen SF, and obviously I misunderstood the OP's description of how it works there. I'm confused. Of course you track hit points, I was referring to the need to track lethal damage and nonlethal damage separately. The OP's description implied, to me, that this is not the case. What am I missing??
About the Inner Sea region... Personally I would much prefer a complete book for it to come out again eventually. It's an opportunity to present things more efficiently while conveniently including the historical updates.
Personal preferences: I'd like the new maps to include the major roads (no harm to those who don't need them, useful to others like me), and the use of hexes on the maps (especially useful for users of the PDF).
Just my 2 cp.
Something I'd like to add to what I wrote in my previous post... Please have stat blocks with more kinds of special abilities explained there (where applicable), instead of us needing to do page flipping too often to see what a monster can do with a given ability. (I'm not talking basics like resistances or the effects of certain speed types, and I can understand exceptions to non-basics too.)
I just think this is one of the things 5e did right with its monster manual. It's even worth saving page room by not including stat blocks for some variants of creatures.

I'd be delighted to have the first bestiary be like this! My answer is YES! (Except I'll take the PDF only, so I'll pay less.)
Personally I don't need much more lore, though that's welcome if there's room for it. Something I'd like is inclusion of stat blocks for a few basic "elite" or "special" versions of some monsters (mainly typical leader types for humanoids and variants such as desert ankhegs or greater sea serpents).
Also, IMO the first bestiary should definitely include all sorts of mundane animals (and any giant varieties) and most primary outsider races.
