Unleash the Beasts!

Get your first look at the future with more than a dozen menacing monsters that we couldn't make room for in the Pathfinder Bestiary. These creatures won't be making an appearance in the Pathfinder RPG for at least a year and will thus only be available in this book for a long while. Showcasing the new rules and flexibility of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, this collection of creatures draws from more than 30 years of gaming history and includes:

  • Deadly beasts and familiar allies, such as allips, caryatid columns, faerie dragons, huecuvas, shadow mastiffs, and more!
  • New rules for monstrous companions, arcane creations, sinister traps, variant creatures, and other options for use with both 3.5 and the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game
  • Explanations of never-before-seen rules being included in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game
  • A preview listing of nearly every monster to be included in the upcoming Pathfinder Bestiary
  • Reimaginings of some of the most iconic creatures in gaming, vibrantly illustrated by some of the best artists in fantasy

Add a taste of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game to your campaign today with this official manual of Pathfinder monstrosities!

This 16-page supplement was initially made available for Free RPG Day on June 20, 2009.

Note: Due to the special nature of this product, it is NOT part of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscription.

Amazing

5/5

I absolutely love the changes to these classic monsters, and can't wait for the full Bestiary!


Great Teaser

5/5

Really pleased with this product, and looking forward to the full Beastiary this fall. Great artwork, informative, and love the improvements (big and small - XP and treasure value system, etc.). Monsters really have quality information.

Great job!

Just putting it on record so that you can see how close you came to the official one?

Yep. And if the Gray Render is not in the book (it's not on the list, but the list is not complete) maybe, just maybe, my version could become official.

I'd think you're pretty close to accurate.

Like the tweaks to the Combat Maneuvers system that this hints at. Tiny and smaller creatures where at too big a disadvantage before.

A creature’s CMD is equal to 10 + its Strength modifier + its Dexterity modifier + its base attack bonus + the special size modifier.

So, it's CMB + Dex mod + special bonuses (deflection, etc.)?

Melee: Bite +15 (2d6+6)

Melee: 2 claws +15 (1d6+6)

Don't forget that both claws and bites are always primary attacks now.

Always? I thought that Jason basically said "monsters can have multiple primary attacks, answer hazy, ask again later". Maybe he stated two things in two different places.

CMB has been changed a little bit ... it is not always STR+BAB ... sometimes its DEX+BAB (for tiny and smaller creatures).

So, um... Hags gather in coveys now like game birds?

I thought they had covens like witches.

Coven is a more accurate word, but covey is not inaccurate; it still works to describe a group of people.

Coven is the word that'll likely be used in the Bestiary itself, though.

That's cool.

Really that's one moment of nitpicking after a thoroughly enjoyable preview. I really appreciate that the book is both attractive and very clear and readable.

Of course... in the 3.5 Monster Manual, a group of hags IS a covey, not a coven. So maybe I won't change it... I'll have to think on it.

That is the goal for the Pathfinder Bestiary, yes.

The Bonus Bestiary was a free product for Free RPG Day, and after the event the PDF was made available in the Paizo Store. To get it:

Go here.
It's free, but you go through the process as if you were buying it.
It will then show up in your downloads.

Enjoy!

It is, perhaps, time to revise the product description.


In case anyone is wondering, the Bonus Bestiary monsters are printed now in the Bestiaries, so this product is now unnecessary.

Unless you are addicted to Paizo, in which case it is required to maintain "sanity". :D
