Bow Down in Fear!

Monsters have long stalked us in the darkness. Within this book, you’ll find a host of these creatures for use in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Face off against archdevils and the Horsemen of the Apocalypse, planar dragons and the legendary wild hunt, proteans and psychopomps, and hundreds more! Some creatures, such as the capricious taniwha, the mysterious green man, or the powerful empyreal lords, might even be willing to provide your heroes aid—if they deserve it!

Pathfinder RPG Bestiary 6 is the sixth must-have volume of monsters for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and serves as a companion to the Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook and Pathfinder RPG 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 a new era.

Pathfinder RPG Bestiary 6 includes:

  • More than 200 different monsters.
  • New player-friendly races, like the crazed monkey goblins, the telepathic albino munavris, the river-dwelling fey naiads, the wolflike rougarou, and the yaddithians of the Elder Mythos.
  • Numerous powerful demigods, from archdevils and Great Old Ones to empyreal lords and qlippoth lords.
  • New animal companions and other allies, such as fierce devil monkeys and loyal clockwork hounds.
  • New templates, including the entothrope and the mongrel giant, 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.
  • Expanded universal monster rules to simplify combat.
  • Challenges for every adventure and every level of play.
  • AND MUCH, MUCH MORE!

And i thought i didn't need this one!

5/5

I had thought when Bestiary 6 came out I wouldn't need it.

How wrong was I!

This book will definitely take it's place as one of the essential Pathfinder books in my collection, if you're waiting to get this, don't! Get it now!

Well done Paizo!

My one complaint is mine had the same s%~$ty yellow binding glue as the first printing of the Starfinder CRB, but I'm not dropping the rating because it is that good (also I still have binding glue leftover from my Starfinder CRB).


A solid addition

4/5

So Bestiary 5 was a bit disappointing to me, but this one is something that did something with Pathfinder I haven't seen in a while: gave me ideas that I wanted to use. A lot of the monsters presented are honestly interesting. As usual, there are some reprints from other products, but I always favor having consolidated lists of things. I won't use everything, but there is enough here that I'll be using a good chunk.

Also, the weremantis reminded me how much I love Portal, so I have to give it to them there.


Upward Trend

5/5

A wide variety of creatures with overall high quality artwork. I like the inclusion of the numerous high CR creatures.

Bestiary 5 and 6 have been my favorite Bestiary books by far.


Unusable

1/5

So me and two other guys from my gaming group ordered this book from amazon. WOW, all of us have missing and or scrambled pages.

I have over 17 missing pages (most of the archdevils content)and more or less 20 pages out of order. I don't know if they are sending all the "special" books down here, but I can assure you I will never buy a physical book from Paizo anymore.

Removed a series of "boob-" and "nipple-monster" posts. Folks, let's not do this in the product discussion threads. We need them focused on the product itself.

No boob and nipple-monsters CONFIRMED!! So much for James Jacobs' wish to embargo further information until closer to the release date.

Let's talk about something else we hope is in the book, so we can get confirmation by whether or not it gets deleted.

I hope there's something about boobs, or nipples.

If we can't talk about what we want to see in a Bestiary on the Bestiary thread what the everloving f&++ can we talk about?
I don't think it's out of line to say that we'd prefer these threads don't devolve into "lol butts" or another debate about the visual representation of the monsters included in the Bestiary (which is the eventual road that a "boob-"/"nipple-monster" chain of discussion leads to). It's absolutely OK to speculate what might be in the book, and we do have a pre-existing thread in the Product Discussion forum for a "Bestiary 6 wishlist" that might be appropriate :)

Marco,

I think the most holiday theme monster I can think of is Fenris. :p ;)

Don't you mean FenrIR? Also, isn't Fenrir Norse mythology?

I believe both are correct depending on noun case/declension, or if nothing else both "Fenrir" and "Fenrisulfr" are both correct in probably the nominative case (Fenrisulfr specifies him as a wolf).

If we get stats for the Midgard Serpent then we need stats for Fenrir.

I'd say that Jormungand and Fenrir don't actually fit within the Pathfinder CR scale.

Because Pathfinder caps at 30, and 30 is firmly below the level of actual gods. A CR 30 creature needs a plot device to be able to challenge an actual god.

But Loki's sons, while not gods, are threats so powerful that the gods need plot devices to deal with them.

So I'd say Jormungand and Fenrir are so strong that they fall into Pathfinder's "unstatable" range.

Alternately, all of the Norse pantheon could be statted as demigods since they're a bit more mortal than a lot of other pantheons, and then the beasts of Ragnarök would be either stronger demigods or somehow actual gods. Not saying that's the way it SHOULD be done, but it would be an interesting option.


So much for monsters with lovely "naughty bits".

What non-outsider based CR26-30 monsters from myth/fiction would you guys like to see?

They gave that silly Jabberwock his own entry. So it is my turn now.

That's actually a very good question. This really seems like it would be the ideal place to stat up insanely powerful mythical beasts like Fenrir, the Midgard Serpent, Typhon, Echidna, Cipactli, Yamata-no-Orochi, etc. Since this book is demigod centric, and most of those (very popular) creatures would have to be about on that level, I wonder if they'll finally get featured.

I just hope there is not another monster art that is just another skinless person or animal. I find those to be really tasteless.

Dragon78 is probably the only person in this world that doesnt like(even hate) the most awesome creature of myth the skinless Nuckelavee. I wish the house, kitchen and garden Nymph would be without skin, then she would at least be a little bit interesting...

IIRC, there is a Midgard Serpent analog who is one of the Eldest (Rangadahn? I know I am probably spelling that wrong...)

I like Ragadahn but he's not what I'd consider a true Midgard Serpent.

More like Nidhogg's older brother probably.

Still wouldn't mind a few more Norse variant monsters in B6.

Personally I have no preference. I'm just excited for more monsters.


All I can say is bring on the cryptids. Daddy needs a Dover Demon and Flatwoods Monster.

Wannabe demon lord, you listed several creatures I would love to see stats for. Though I know we will not see Typhon and Echidna because I asked Mr. Jacobs and he said "no" to them being in B6 along with Cerberus.

I think the Phantom of Flatwoods already showed up as the Melfesh Monster in, I believe, Pathfinder AP #61. It might be in one of the websites that collects everything officially Pathfinder-related.

Still doesn't preclude perhaps Norse style Fenris as something. Maybe.

you're confusing the Caipora and the Curupira.


Well since B5 had undead based on a ship and stage coach then maybe will get a tank, car, bicycle, etc..

I am also hoping for a "living sword" type creature of some kind.

Kinda like the Tsukumogami?


Living sword? What we're getting Stormbringer and Mournblade now?!!


A living car and tank should be in starfinder.


No, it was in Starfinder it would be a space ship;) Also I was talking about vehicle based undead.

A "living sword" could be a construct, undead, aberration, magical beast or even an ooze. It could be an outsider as well but I would prefer any of the other creature types.

If your heard about one then you must have heard of the other, since they are "brethren" and come from the same book series by the same author.


Actually the only Mournblade I remember was in Castlevania: SotN;)

A car and tank undead doesnt make sense in the old times.

I'm sorry, "old times" of where?


Most advanced "ghost-vehicle" I'd think would be reasonable in a bestiary would be a ghost-airship.... tanks and cars are far too advanced without heavy reflavouring.

We already have robots and AIs in the bestiaries so calling out tanks and cars as "far too advanced" is kinda eh.

Rasputin Must Die! has the stats for animated tanks. They're not undead but thematically similar.

Rasputin Must Die!:
They're constructs with enslaved human minds trapped inside. I remember my players being pretty weirded out they discovered the tanks were basically enslaved people. But the tanks are alchemical constructs and can't really be taken alive.

Also, interesting thing about the tanks - they have WWI weaponry, but some of the ramifications of this (like the 300 ft range increment on the main weapon) aren't called out in the monster write-up.

Though a Bestiary entry for that tank would have to explain the weapons, greatly increasing the word count. Which greatly reduces the odds of the tank actually making it into a main Bestiary, I think.

Now, there isn't actually a place on Golarion itself that supports cars & tanks.

While the robots are basically an invasive species, making them weirdly appropriate for the bestiaries. =P

Transforming Mecha, but the Word Count multiplier would be insane.

Ha! Agreed :3


@ Rysky - I haven't read Wardens of the Reborn Forge, so I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure Alkenstar doesn't even have steam power, let alone combustion engines.

Yes and no. I tried to make it so a player had an evil sword, even if he was good (and a magus)...didn't work out as well as Moorcock's.

Also Rysky's agreement about old stuff is cool. :)

The same fantasy world with a high tech spaceship (and tanks and cars thanks to Reign of Winter and Strange Aeons).


Still, people hat want cars and tanks in a medieval based fantasy world... Look that dryad is riding a car, a ferrari, and that elf is checking his selfie on facebook. :-/

For you, for others they can have their Numeria and Strange Aeons and Reign of Winter and tanks and cars and enjoy as much or as little as they want to ^w^

Considering that Alkenstar is more or less in the gunpowder and steam engine era of civilization it wouldn't be too far fetched for Alkenstar to have access to something like, oh, say, a Steam Tank war engine (aka Warhammer Fantasy Battle's Empire's of Man's war machines)?


I dont care, I cant imagen people want cars mixed with minotaurs and pixies. If its SF-only ok. But a place where medieval towns can be visited by cars and the internet from the future? I cant imagen anyone actually liking that.
