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!

Pure Money-grab

2/5

While there are some gems here, the Bestiary 6 is example #1 of the perils of pure money-grabbing. The number of downright silly or derivative creatures here is mind-boggling. Do we need more (X)-giants? Or more female sin demons? Speaking of gender, Paizo's blatant gender discrimination against males is on full display here, with far more creatures that are female-only or described as "A woman..." than there are for males.

If you take all the gems from bestiaries 3-6 and get rid of all the silly or repetitive creatures, you'd have 4 bestiaries total, instead of 6. Instead, Paizo treats these like cable subscriptions, filling these books with numerous "channels" you don't want or need, while giving you a few you'll actually watch.


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.

I am not surprised the blighted fey template made it in. I wonder what other creatures from the Inner Sea Bestiary and the Occult Bestiary made it in.

I kind of hope that some psychopomps made it in...

Funnily enough, I asked that very same question. Though I don't think I asked it that well. Communication problems are very annoying.


Pychic Vampires would be awesome.. with a Dhampir..erm..breed.

Isn't that what the Vetela and ajibachanas are ?


So, it seems the hardcover version of this is out, I have a friend on another board asking if there are any low CR things in this book. Hows the general power level looking on this one?

Vetala would be cool too. Neither they nor Psychic Vampires are in the RPG line, even though Jiang-Shi, Nosferatu, and Moroi are.

Shipping starts Monday, so nobody will have their PDFs before then.


I would really like to see a monster with fire and water kineticist like abilities - just like the anemos and the glaistig.


Nope.Psychic Vampires were in the occult bestiary.

Even though shipping starts Monday, Tuesday seems to be when everyone is really talking about the PDFs.

Dark Archive

Well you need to give time for people to read the pdf

All I would want is to known the list of creatures in the book - if possible, with theirs names followed by creature type and CR.

Sincerely, I don't want to known more than that until I get to read the book myself. :)


Well technically only a couple(at best) of people on the site seem to get their PDFs the first day they are sent. I have only been one of those few a couple of times in the several years I have been a subscriber. Though some people seem to almost always get it the first day, lucky ba...people that they are.

Hey, I almost always get mine last.


And in this case, I'll have to wait for the official release to get a PDF - I can't afford to subscribe, especially for a redundant physical copy. Not that I'm complaining. ^_^

There is nothing redundant about a physical copy.

There is, if you are short on shelf space and/or aren't a fan of killing trees and/or don't run games at your home and are not fond of hauling 20 kg of books when you can have them all on a laptop/tablet/phone.

Or, in my case, if I'm getting two physical copies for other reasons anyway. ^_^

There is always room for ants...I am not sure why you would want them though.

They make for great, inexpensive cat toys.

:)


All I know is I can wait until Tuesday. Mondays are crappy anyway...


So subscribers are receiving pdfs on Monday? On the one hand, it would be more interesting when I receive the book not to know every single creature in it. On the other hand, I have no impulse control. That and there's way more creatures already known this time then there was last time, and I'm really interested in finding out which more esoteric, mythical creatures got included.

Remember kids! Only you can click on a link! No one is making you do it!


As long as you are warned that the link contains spoilers then I think it is okay.

Has nothing to do with spoilers.

We don't mind folks talking about a product once it's been released. And it's not "released" until subscribers get the PDF really or its available in stores.

If someone gets ahold of a copy of the book early, before its release date, via some other method, it's not cool for that person to reveal contents. We like to manage the build-up for a book's release via blog posts and the like, but also like to keep contents of things under wraps because when information leaks early it can cause all sorts of problems.

We know when the book is released and when subscribers should be getting it, so if we see someone start posting contents significantly before that point, it makes us nervous and we take action to stop it.

And if you're a person who somehow gets a copy of the book well in advance, it would be nice of you to cool your jets and wait until the book is released before you start talking about it in public. Doing otherwise damages your reputation with Paizo and annoys those of us who work at Paizo. It's much closer to the realm of breaking an NDA than it is merely posting spoilers.


Can I post a link of you and Wes Schneider playing Mezzonberran while we wait for Bestiary 6?

Not here; let's keep the discussion of things Bestiary 6 focused.


Fair enough Mister Jacobs.

I hope that when we get more info, it might include a few Slender men...

We are so close to the release. I'm sure we are all able to patiently wait until subscribers start doing their subscribers things, right?

Until then I will be expeculating what exactly are the capricious taniwha. I'm starting to think they could be a new good aligned outsider group. As much as I want them to be dragons (Ha-Ha!), I would be satisfied with a new category of planar allies.

I used to go dark on the bestiary product pages until I got my hardcopy (I prefer browsing the hardcover if possible). But that was when I lived in Wyoming and got my book within 4 days.

Since moving to Long Island, it's not uncommon for a book to take 2 weeks to arrive at my doorstep :(


I would love if the Omnipath made it into the Bestiary. Anxiously waiting for a creatures list.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber

That be from a new AP. Usually if new AP won't go in sometimes from past experience :( It also makes the AP itself that much more valuable also.

It's actually from Occult Bestiary.


Indeed, from Occult Bestiary. I'm sure it would be useful in the upcoming AP. ;)
