Untold Horrors!

Confront the creatures that go bump in the night! Bestiary 4 presents hundreds of new monsters for use in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Within this tome of terrors you'll find pitiless psychopomps and blood-drinking nosferatu, insectile formians and faceless nightgaunts, and even unique mythological horrors like Spring- Heeled Jack and Grendel himself. Yet not every creature need be an enemy, as mighty empyreal lords, primeval outer dragons, and valorous swan maidens enlist you in their epic battles!

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Bestiary 4 is the fourth indispensable volume of monsters for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and serves as a companion to the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook and Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Bestiary. This imaginative tabletop game builds upon more than 10 years of system development and an Open Playtest featuring more than 50,000 gamers to create a cutting-edge RPG experience that brings the all-time best-selling set of fantasy rules into the new millennium.

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Bestiary 4 includes:

  • More than 300 different monsters
  • Creatures from classic horror literature and monster films, including the colour out of space, elder things, and kaiju
  • New player-friendly races like changelings, kitsune, and nagaji
  • Entities of mythic might, from despotic demon lords and alien elohim to terrifying Great Old Ones—including Cthulhu!
  • New creatures you can construct, like clockworks and juggernauts
  • New familiars, animal companions, and other allies
  • New templates to help you get more life out of classic monsters
  • Appendices to help you find the right monster, including lists by Challenge Rating, monster type, and habitat

The Horror Takes Center Stage....

5/5

This edition of the Bestiary series brings all the worst nightmares, not found in a traditional fantasy setting alive! Despite the horror feel, they work in any genre you might be playing. By far my favorite of the Bestiary series! The sheer creativity of the Paizo team explodes in this awesome collection of crazy!


An RPG Resource Review

5/5

Herein is a fine and fascinating array of monsters, most with supernatural aspects and worthy of songs and legends... indeed it is suggested that to make the most of them you should be also using the Mythic Adventures rules. Fitting adversaries for those who fancy themselves as such legendary heroes, perhaps...

The Introduction is mainly explanation of how each monster entry is presented, complete with handy icons used to enable you to tell at a glance the creature type and the terrain and climate that it favours. These are supplemented by appendices that list them by CR, terrain and so on thus enabling you to populate a chosen area with ease. Other appendices deal with special abilities and other details, including a fascinating section on monster creation, another on monster advancement and one on monsters as player-characters.

The main bulk of the book is composed of an alphabetical listing of the monsters. Each comes with a colour illustration and stat block, with plenty of detail and description to enable you to work out suitable uses for it and how it will behave when encountered by the party.

Beginning with the abaia, an eel with a strong regard for the environment which acts as guardian to a body of water... and turns quite nasty if you do not respect the lake it inhabits (it doesn't mind people who take only what they need, it is those who abuse nature that upsets them), there follows a fascinating array of creatures.

The almiraj, for example, looks like a cross between a rabbit and a unicorn, but it's no fluffy bunny! If nothing else, anything slain by its horn is turned to stone so if the poor almiraj wants to eat whatever it has attacked (it's apparently a carnivore), it has to eat its prey alive.

One of the weirdest is the colour out of space. This is an eerie radient incorporeal ooze that leaches life out of its surroundings until it reaches maturity, at which time it departs into the interstellar depths from which it came. If that's not enough for you, the Great Old Ones are here, so if you wish to combat Cthulhu or Hastur or the like, now you can... if you dare. Most have cults associated with them, details of which are also given.

If it's monsters out of legend that you want, there are beings such as Grendel, if you prefer more mundane ones there are gremlins or even giraffes! Undead too, and an alchemist's error called a hungry flesh, a giant ooze. To cap it all, how about an immortal ichor, which is an intelligent mass of blood from a dead evil deity...

This is indeed a collection of monsters rich and strange, ones whose very being deserve a song or story, never mind those that will be written when heroes defeat them in battle!


Lots of fun new monsters!

4/5

Read my full review on Of Dice and Pen.

Bestiary 4 contains over 300 new monsters. All the monster types are represented, although some more than others. There are many of the standards found in every Bestiary—new dinosaurs, devils, dragons—but also many unusual and bizarre creatures. It has provided me with lots of new options to throw at my players, and that’s always a good thing.


5/5

The Bestiary 4 for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game has been one of the more favorites of the Bestiary series for me and I'd like to take a moment to tell you why.

To start, the Bestiary 4 has added everything from new types of fey to additional golems as well as the more prominent and popular Kaiju, Great Old Ones, and Empyreal Lords. Paizo's inclusion of these creatures that've gone on to become pop culture legends in their own right is a direct result of the designer's dedication to getting their monsters right. The Bestiary 4 is an awesome sourcebook and stands right up there with the Bestiary 3 in terms of 'fantasy verisimilitude,' hardening gamers resolve against such villainous foes as Cthulhu himself.

Not every book is a perfect image of idolatry however and the Bestiary 4 is no exception. While it's true that this book is littered with new baddies for your players to chase and new races for their characters to face, it is also bogged down with what seems to be an over-saturation of multiple page monsters. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it does seem as if several of these creatures could've used a proverbial trimming before being posted.

If you don't mind a bit of length though and you want more vile beasts for your players to square off against then the Bestiary 4 is yet another wonderful book to add to your collection and one that comes Five-Star recommended by your Severed Ronin.

You probably know if you need this

5/5

This is a good Bestiary. I'd personally put it up with Bestiary 3, with both having a good mix of classic, mythological, and completely new monsters.

There's a bit of a horror them and a bit of a mythic theme, but neither is overwhelming. If you're looking for a whole book of mythic monsters, this isn't it. If you're worried the whole book is mythic monsters, there aren't that many in practice.

For me, the evocative flavor on the high CR creatures pushes it over the top. The demon lords, empyreals, and great old ones really feel like epic creatures.

If you're sure you don't need any more monsters... don't buy this book. That said, I wasn't sure if I needed any more monsters and was definitely impressed by this.

Short Version: These are sweet monsters, but only you know whether you want more monsters.

Does anyone know how long Elohim live for? I got to say, I never heard of a monster with epic regeneration that couldn't live forever. Does it have the longevity mythic ability or something?

Edit: Never mind. I found the catalog. I had to plow through an army of Nissan Pathfinder Catalogs on a search engine to find it.

Can't think of a scorpion, but there is a spider kaiju called Kumonga or Spiega, depending on which language you're watching in.

Can you quote the post that has a link or download to their catalog? I found it before but now I don't know where it is.

Doesn't say. I kinda assume all outsiders are immortal though, right?

Pooka, or PUCA, are like that. Basically animal spirits who are less hostile to people but love to play tricks. Say unlike a Selkie who will drown you to EAT you, they'll pick you up and drop you in a ditch laughing at you, etc.

Farmers use to put aside the Pooka's share as an apeasement to the tricksters. Think of them kinda like Irish/Celt trickster spirits. (Coyote/Raven/Loki/Kitsune/Tanooki) type.

The Pooka looks like that, and can be a familiar? That's an interesting choice...

What are all the templates like? I kinda wish they would just make a clockwork template, to be honest.


Pathfinder Rulebook Subscriber

That reminds me. Selkie made it in.

I need to sit down and catalogue how many "hot chick that tricks guys and drowns them" monster all the bestiaries have. There are a lot I can imagine :)

Mist drake looks like a blue misty dragon and can make fog clouds around it. Also has fogvision.


DOes the selkie has new artwork?

Broken Soul and Divine Guardian made it in. Devil Bound got a nice update with all the devils in B1-B4. The Nightmare and Shadow Creatures are in as well, with a new Shadow Lord template added in. And man, when you see the Nightmare Ettercap... it's amazing. I've finally figured it out. It's like Giger and Guillermo del Toro had a baby and it's an ivory and crimson spider-manbeast from your darkest dreams. It is... wow.

I don't have the original, but you get a devil companion depending on your level/CR. In addition, you get Stat boosts based on the devil that is sponsoring you. This includes all devils from all Bestiaries (1-4). There's other stuff, but that's the main stuff that comes to mind.

I really like how devils are getting some much needed love. I'm admittedly tired of demons and cannot wait until Wrath of the Righteous is done. Starting to feel more overdone than drow, dragons, and half-dragons in the 3.5 era.


Last question, what are the new golems like?

Thank you very much for answering my questions.


Pathfinder Rulebook Subscriber

Coral Golem, Blood Golem (weak to bleed effects), Junk Golem (can give people tetanus and turn into a swarm of, well, junk. CR 4.)


Those golems sound like fun! Blood Golem is made from blood or does it look ugly like the D&D Blood golem with armor on?

Also is there a magnetic creature in the book? Or a Mirror creature?

Seeing as your character(s) have a habbit of dating them. *koff*


Pathfinder Rulebook Subscriber

It's made from blood, yes.

There is a Mirror Creature. The SoulSliver. It can transport through mirrors and turn itself into a "perfect copy" of any creature. When it dies, glass shards attack people around it.

Looking through, there are a lot of creatures with Death Throes as an ability.

Yes. The picture is of it attacking from a mirror.

Don't think so. Some electric monsters though.


AWESOME! Too bad for magnetic monsters, but the mirror thing really makes up for it!

Probably my favorite monster yet.


What kind of spell-like abilities do Elohim have?

Another Kaiju question:
Someone mentioned Agyra has a Swift Flight ability. What is that?

With you on the demons thing. The oversaturation of the market and this focus on them being this sort of "Greatest heavy this multiverse has ever known" is getting tired. They have been touted as such now since 1ed from the feel of it and I'm really ready to see how everyone else stacks up and how they are different from them and that we then don't see a bunch of demons that ape their concepts.

I think it's why everyone always gets excited at kytons, daemons, qlippoth, devils, and cthulhian monsters whenever we hear word that we are getting new ones since they feel so new and fresh and are so built around very interesting concepts that end up so central to their nature.


Are all the kytons re-used from AP's and such? If not what is the new kyton like?

Well admittedly, the devils in here are all reprints. Drowning Devils from Skull and Shackles, Advodaza Devil from Thrice Damned Prince, and the Host Devil from Book of the Damned 1. Surprisingly without it's younger version. But hey, we got the Devil-Bound template and that's good enough for me. Just gotta enjoy the scraps we get from our Abyssal overlords from time to time.

At least it's not like daemons ;)

Sacristan Kyton are brutish chain devils that can shoot confusing darkness from their mouths, which are wired shut.

The other Kyton (Ostiarius) is from Shattered Star.


Ahhh never liked the Ostiarius... I'm curious about the other one, doesn't sound as extreme as most Kyton's we already have.


Pathfinder Rulebook Subscriber

I like the Ostiarius because it reminds me of Pinhead from Hellraiser. I seriously wanted him to have a puzzle box in his hands for the artwork.

Both have great artwork.

The drakiana .... Its basically an evil, baby-making aberration. It can impregnate creatures with its spawn (yes, even the gentlemen) and all impregnated creatures within 30 feet of a drakiana have their gestation increased to 2d4 rounds, even if your baby WASN'T a drakiana-spawn! What's worse, the rapid, forced pregnancy deals damage to you and breaks any armor that you happen to be wearing. (Unless it was a natural pregnancy, in which case it is merely hasted, the baby is mutated.)

I'm barely through the D's, and I can say that this book is FILLED with horror monsters. Everything from psychological horror to body horror is in this book. Its very refreshing considering that these monsters mess with characters' bodies in a way that is more quantifiable than, "You take 2d6 points of Constitution damage."

Edit: She's a named monster, CR 25 (MR10), so just shy of the power level of a Demon Lord. She's called "a mother of monsters," so I wonder if she's a reference to Grendel's mother. We need a fact-checker, stat!

ISN'T SHE AWESOME? She's definitely in my top favorite monsters in this book. Also note that some of her abilities are *not* dependent on the sex of the target. :D

....

Can't say body-horror stuff like that is my style of "entertainment." Just kind of traumatizes me actually. Makes me regret I'm getting this book now, but I think it's too late to cancel my order. It's "pending" but hasn't shipped, and it's a subscription order.

Yeah but I feel like we need those devils more then we need new demons. I mean we have a demon for EVERY CR CURRENTLY AVAILABLE TO NON MYTHIC and yet we are still getting new ones to add to that while others including the other 2 in the big 3 have gaps that are begging to be filled in the main line and concepts we all know we are interested in seeing fleshed out.

I will say though that the Advodaza is one of my favorite devils and I have been dying to see it hit the setting neutral print and the possessor devil and sea devil are also welcome additions. Besides that it always felt more right and terrifying to have devils have possessing minions since, due to their more orderly nature, they could cause harm on such a grander scale and stay focused on it more consistently.

In my mind societies fight demons for fear of the damage they might cause, while societies lament the damage that the devils have already done.

Giving me new devils that let me build on that concept just makes them all the richer for role play.


Is there a Tiyanak? Evil baby monster? It suits in beautiful with the Tikbalang.

If someone would be so kind as to say how many new templates in this book? Are there any new generic templates in the back/appendix?

Not so much clockwork familiar, but clockwork template so I could make some clockwork bears or clockwork rust monsters and such. I saw the clockwork familiar, and just now saw that it could be any of the familiars, not just one of the birds. But yeah, clockwork template would be good to clockwork other creatures (should probably put that in the wishlist for #5), as the gnomes in my world create lots of that stuff (was inspired by the clockwork dragon in the Shattered Star AP).
