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.

Ah, you're right.


We have had similar creatures but nothing quite like the granfalloon/legion.

I have seen multiple undead in Castlevania that carry their head in their arms but none that do that in Pathfinder.

Also there are no flying winged eyeball monsters.


what about flying books that open up and stab you with a lot of knifes

Are you certain? I seem to recall seeing something like that in either B4 or B5...

B4. The isitoq, a tiny flying undead eyeball you can use as a familiar.

I knew there was something. Thank you! ^_^


Yeah there is a flying undead eyeball monster but I am talking about winged eyeballs or small flying monsters with one giant eye. Basically aberrations, fiends, and magical beast.

Also why aren't there any tiny(or smaller) size humanoids and/or monstrous humanoids.

I would love that flying sword monster that animates weapons and shields and yes those flying books with spells and blades coming out of them would be awesome as well.

What other Castlevania style creatures would you like to see?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

It is an aberration, but the Aatheriexa says "Hi!" Makes for a very nice Beholder replacement, IMO. Kind of reminds me of Vincent Price's "Island of Terror". Really like that movie as cheesy as it is.

I think we have addressed this before, though, Dragon. To avoid any friction from the other company, I doubt you will get anything else like it. Beholder is not open content, which seems to be what you are getting at. If it isn't, then I apologize for the assumption.


I wasn't asking for a beholder wannabe, they have multiple eyes, I am talking about monsters that are a single eye with (bat)wings. Also would like to see a flying monster of small size (and/or tiny) with a single (red or yellow)eye that flies(natural or supernatural) with an inky black body and tail, arms and/or legs are optional. We have undead eyeball so creature types would be aberration, outsider, magical beast, or even plant.

That gives me an idea.

It rather reminds me of something...

Reminds me of the floateye/ahriman monsters from the Final Fantasy series. Not sure if those are protected IPs of Square Enix though, though the concept of them seems nebulous enough that there shouldn't be any copyrighting stuff on them.

Given the wholesale theft of D&D IP present in early Final Fantasy games, it would be deeply hypocritical for them to try anything.

Not that that would necessarily stop them, of course. Just an observation. ^_^

I was thinking of the one-eyed bat-ravens on the Ultimate Psionics cover. (I've started tinkering on them as a improved familiar.)

Hehe I had forgotten about that! Well I guess using the floateye would just be following the old Square traditiom then!


The floatseye/ahriman from the FF games are one of the many examples such creatures.

The one-eyed bat-ravens are another.

Gravity Falls has used such creatures as well.

Not counting countless anime has as well.


There's also the Eyewing from D&D, but that isn't open content last I checked, so...

From Pathfinder, we also have the Arbiter inevitable (B2).

But hey! There's nothing wrong with more floating-eye creatures!

Carry on.

--C.


The Kyton Augur is a flying eye, albeit one mostly encased in blades.


If we are talking about creatures from video games that we would like to see on a hard cover bestiary like B6, Resident Evil is the game I can't let pass. I know pathfinder has a pretty good number of undead and aberrations, but I would really like to see creatures like those from Resident Evil 4, 5 and 6, that were created using the Plaga parasites and the Chrysalid Virus (C-Virus).

A new vermin subtype or a versatile vermin template based on these verminous virus would be something remarkable

Anyway, shouldn't we move this discussion to a proper board?

We have already talked about everything we know to be in this product to death. Until something new is reveled we are just going to talk about wishes, theories, and conjectures about this book;)

Fair enough, I suppose.

While we're talking about SquEnix IP, we're going to be bumping firmly into that if Paizo ever stats up Rubicant.

Rubicant(e) comes from Dante Alighieri's "Divine Comedy", so unless he would be a carbon copy of Final Fantasy version, there's no issue.

It's also worth noting that Pathfinder's Scarmiglione, Cagnazzo, and Barbariccia are nothing like their Final Fantasy equivalents.

If we could get any one creature directly from a final fantasy game, I would pick Atma Weapon from FF6.


Bunch of new Proteans but no new Aeons or Inevitables...again. :(

There were new Aeons in the last bestiary.


I also have said that B6 had Aeons but I agree that we need more Inevitables, hopefully B7 will have some.

Yeah but I would like to see a wide range of Aeons in various CR as well as Inevitables, we have yet to have that yet. We have them with Proteans now, especially in B6.

I think Milo was just objecting to you saying there were no new aeons 'again' when the very last Bestiary introduced new aeons.


Maybe the reason we don't have stats for Santa is because Krampus is Santa's dark side manifesting as a monster to punish naughty children and people who just don't like Christmas;)


So I'm looking through the older Posts, and find that I missed a few dozen. My excitement has quadrupled, as I find out that the Horla is going to be in here. a very... An Emphatic... A rather late... Thank You!!!
I just ordered a copy from my local games dealer (Phil) today. I've been trying to wait until April to do it, but reading through the posts and seeing various "yes this will be in here" and "No. This won't be in the book this time" got me all excited, now I have to wait a whole two months-ish as I torment myself wondering whether it was worth ordering so early.

Also, While I'm thinking about it, are the Hivemind Swarms from the description anything like the Hive Mind Beetle Swarms from Occult Bestiary, or is the spelling difference used to connotate a separate set of entities?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

We will find out eventually, but right now I am more interested in what the final cover art will be.


Indeed, Dragon... I myself am already in a state where I come here just to check the cover and the last post...


Maybe it will be updated this Friday;)

What makes you think that?

Other than what? Several types are confirmed to be in the book.


Well, I don't known if this is a plausible answer, but Dragon78's posts are the ones I search for when the "those are in and those are out" list is the subject, and the last time I checked there were no news about demigods in his posts.

Maybe someone else got something from other boards.


Archdevils and Daemonic Horsemen are all demigods.


Indeed, alongside Great Old Ones and Empyreal Lords.

But James said that we would get demigods never seen before. However, I don't know how we should take it. Maybe he meant to say that they where never seen in a bestiary or that we never saw their appearance, or even that there are completely new demigods in B6. That's what I have been waiting to know: Are there other demigods in B6 or Archdrvils, Archdaemons, Great Old Ones and Empyreal Lords are all we are getting? (These four pantheons alone are already enough to make this book a must buy).

It's just that I would love to see the Elemental Lords or some of the Eldest stated, specially for their traits and special abilities. I'm in the process of creating draconic and animal like demigods for my setting and it's good to have a good number of examples.

I'm not sure I specifically said there would be "demigods never seen before" in this book, but the Great Old Ones, Empyreal Lords, Horsemen, and Archdevils are NOT the only creatures in Bestiary 6 that can have clerics.


I classify any creature of CR26-30 as a demi-god level creature though not all such creatures grant spells or have mythic ranks. I just assume that B6 will have a lot of creatures of CR26-30 range, not that all of them will be actual demi-gods.

There are still a few demon lords we haven't got stats for. I, for one, wouldn't mind seeing Nurgal and Zura get statted up. ^_^

Very true, which is why I specifically mentioned the one whose areas of concern include Fire and Honor. Also, since the FF4 version is a major part of a prince's storyline, you could say he kinda...edges into Nobility.

Thanks for your reply Mr. Jacobs. That was enough to answer my questions.

That's was a really good hint to what we should expect. So, we are getting other demigods or maybe quasi-deities in Bestiary 6. Or could it be a reference to the statues haunted by dead gods? =O

A lot of assumptions I'm making here... I know...

Good choices. From the CE lords I would like to see stat blocks for Zura, Cyth-V'sug and Angazhan. That would leave Abraxas, Gogunta, Orcus and Socothbenoth as the remaining major demon lords yet to be stated.


I hope some of those other creatures that can have clerics are non-evil creatures like N, LN, CN, etc.


I'm still hoping there will be an updated version of the Cabal Devils, preferably with a new illustration :P

Expectation management: Orcus pretty much has no shot at appearing in a Pathfinder product beyond what already exists. While Pathfinder can invoke him thanks to the Tome of Horrors, they don't do much with a character so thoroughly associated with their competitor's brand. Same goes for Jubilex, the Misspelled Lord.

That said, I believe the aforementioned Tome has nice shiny statblocks for both. Give it a look! ^_^
