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.

The development of B6 should be done soon, if not already finished, so Paizo probably want some surprises to be left before release date.

Development has been done for a few months, in fact. It's very close to heading out to the printer. What ramifications that has on the schedule of previews remains to be seen.


I hope that means that when it does go to the printer we will get the final cover art.

It doesn't.

The reveal of the final cover and cover art is independent to a certain extent of the book shipping to the printer, although that date DOES indicate the starting point of the countdown to that reveal, since the cover is usually one of the last things to get finalized.

I don't really see it as deviation. Someone asked for a thing that Paizo doesn't intend to produce, and the developers took some time (out of their busy schedules) to recommend products that would match their desires.

It has always been one of Paizo's greatest attributes: that a number of their developers/designers/editors eagerly interact with their fans. It's a wonderful thing that gets fans interested more in Paizo's stuff (and in other things that Paizo's folks like and recommend) and I'm deeply appreciative of it myself. :)

Yeah I heard if you don't talk about linnorms a death curse will afflict the next person to post without mentioning them.

Azis, Taniwhas, and Native American Horned Serpents. That is what we need.

Pure love, that is what we need in bestiary 6

A monster that uses love in it's purest energy form to blast it's enemies....interesting.

Honestly, I really hope the new dragons look radically different from each outer. It made sense with the imperial dragons, but the Occult and Outer dragons just being reskins is frustrating when there is so much potential there.


I really like the Outer Dragons. :-)

I agree, they were so much alike...

The First World gives us the Gerbie, which kinda fit this.

Shouldn't you make a linnorm alias for that?

Well now you've done it.

Are there not any Linnorm avatars? I just got through looking through all of them and couldn't find any :(

Could have sworn I'd seen one before.

I personally recommend Advanced Bestiary to anybody who wants more templates.

Agree whole-heartedly. In fact, the primary reason I backed the Freeport Kickstarter was because they said they'd redo the Advanced Bestiary if Freeport was successful :)


I actually really like the designs of the occult dragons, except for the actual occult dragon. But I agree about the outer dragons' design, they really lacked.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

What I hope for this new set of dragons is that they aren't counterparts in appearance. I mean, the dream and the nightmare dragons are just a good and evil version of the same design. The good and the evil outer dragon should be completely different from each other. Just like the celestial and fiends.

That is why I never like the pathfinder dragons, they are just the same with some different abilities and colores.

I really liked the bestiary 2 dragons though, really awesome!


4 people marked this as a favorite.

The problem with the true dragons lies in their lack of background.

Dragons Revisited gave the first two sets of true dragons a meaning in the setting, as did a bunch of other products. On the other hand, we know close to nothing about the imperial, the outer and the occult dragons - nothing about their ecology, their society, not even about the relationship between these 15 breeds.

The primal dragons (B2) had a greater opportunity to conquer their rule in the setting as they had small but numerous appearances in many products, like Dragons Unleashed or Planes of Power, in which we got to know more about their society and goals.

I have nothing against new true dragons in Bestiary 6 - especially as they are from the Outer Sphere - but a book like Dragons Revisited/Unleashed 2... Well... I don't think there is a need to say how many of us would be pleased with that.


I would love some more revisited/unleashed books for dragon and other creatures.

Linnorms Unleashed!


I wanna see obscure mythology monsters unleased, Buggane, Abaia, Karkadann, Mngwa, Papinijuwana (or the meteor cyclops) and some others.

Ironfang Invasion's covers were just updated so I imagine the update on this one is imminent.


If it's update had anything to do with the Ironfang Invasion's update then it would have updated yesterday. Not to say it is impossible to updated this week, i am just not going to hold my breath on it.

I think it'gonna be updated in january.


Or maybe right before Paizo closes for Christmas;)

The Krampus will update, maybe! >:3

If Krampus is on the cover then it would be a good time for the update;)


BOOOOOOOOOOOM

A WEIGHTY TOME


Ithink they will do that quiz again, but a week before release (for pre-releases) so Dragon78 already knows which monsters are there because he already owns the book.

They should start early januari with that lizz-without-lizz quiz.


If I am lucky to get the PDF that early.

I wonder whether the May hardback is about to slip now? We once again supposedly have hardbacks coming out in two successive months.

I wouldn't mind, my spring 2017 budget is strained already.


Selfish, if you don't have enough money you can buy the product later.
