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.

I was kind of hoping the Giganotosaurus' description didn't mention what its length or height was. I understand that they were meant to fill in the gaps of CRs and size categories for prehistoric animals, like James said, but I feel like mentioning its size and weight ruins the opportunity to at least allow people who look at the creature to assume that it could be a much bigger fantasy version of the actual animal.

Mentioning that it's 60 feet long at 35,000 pounds seems like it's only going to confuse people, especially when there are creatures, such as Colossi, that are 60 feet high and 75+ tons at gargantuan. Even other animals of similar sizes, such as the dire shark and crocodile are gargantuan at a much lower CR.

I just really would like some consistency when it comes to a creature's size category, which is pretty much zero. It's not just animals recently, either, it's a problem in every bestiary.

I'm sorry, but the thing you're concerned about isn't relevant at all.


I'm certainly drooping a review as soon as I get this book.

I believe this and the other hardcovers comings out this year are really important books, as their feedback is the key for the future of paizo products, and I'm expecting good reviews for all of them - specially Book of the Damned.

While I'm aware that there are numerous other factors that are taken in consideration, just as I hope a good reception of the sixth bestiary will lead us into the seventh, I would certainly like to see another book like BotD.


What are the ability adjustments (+2/+2/-2) of naiads?


I believe you can refer to it as the "Ability Score Modifiers" as this is how they are referred in Advance Races Guide. ;)

And I'm seconding your question.

I'll write a review as soon as I get my copy and won't have to wake up a friend of mine with late night calls asking "WHAT IS THE CR OF ARODEN???!".

By the way, it's 12.

I have to say, I'm surprised how many people here apparently didn't buy Occult Bestiary <_<

I mean, seriously, Occult Bestiary is great and its shame most of people are introduced to monsters from it only now

Edit: Also, if there are three kamaitachis, can they do that classic mythology thing(assuming I haven't heard wrong again) where first one knocks down person, second one cuts them and third one heals them so they end up having wounds without pain? (because scarring people is funny for them I guess?)

Not really, their Delayed Doom ability will lapse after 2 weeks if they haven't activated it yet, but they don't actually have the ability to heal the damage they cause.

Naiads:
In order: Dexterity/Charisma/Strength.

Kind of obvious when you think about it....

Liberty's Edge

Any chance of a 'square on' cover shot instead of the weird slanting side-on one?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I will be dropping a review when the book gets a store release.

I can say that at least I got a few creatures I have been asking for a long time like the nekomata, giant sundew, giant starfish, etc.

I do like the three new 0HD races though I do wish catfolk were as powerful as the rougarou:(

I really like the new kaiju, I wish we could have gotten more then 3.

I own the Occult Bestiary, actually. Turns out I only have an encyclopedic mind for Player ôptions.:-P


Could someone describe the differences between Charon's new art and the old one from BotD? Is it more detailed? The old one didn't show his skeletal features or jewelry.

EDIT: Who was their illustrator?

The art in the interior is the same from BotD.

The art is good, but they essentially look like crash-test dummies with some filigree.

More Detail:
The clockwork angel stands upright, feathered wings out its back and its right hand is on the pommel of a flaming greatsword the point of which is touching the ground.

The clockwork assassin (the coolest looking IMHO) is down on one knee, its right arm ending in a rapier out away from its body while its left arm is bent in towards itself with various tubes projecting around a device reminiscent of Deadshot's wrist gun. A single red light is lit where its eyes should be.

The clockwork fiend has bat wings, a long tail, digitigrade knees ending in cloven feet, the hand have claws, it has long horns and there is a fire burning in its head that glows out of its mouth and eyes.

The clockwork guardian looks like a man in armor with a single glowing blue eye showing out of a finned helm. On arm has a massive shield and the other ends in what looks like a small wrecking ball.

The clockwork hound looks like a beagle made of metal.

Nope. It's on the same page as giganotosaurus, and that's the one that got the art. :/

Entothropes:
Let's see: A Lawful Evil were-mantis monk (whoever could he worship?), a Neutral Evil were-spider rogue, and a Chaotic Neutral female Elf were-wasp cleric of Calistria.

Oh yeah, they are awesome! :)


Having the male dryad in mind, I have to ask: are the naiad a female-only race?

@Psiphyre and Feros, Okies, thanks!


Wait there's a Bestiary 7 now?! How did I not know this?!!

Also, as for why some of us forgot about Occult Bestiary...some of us were broke when it came out. So...

But in staying on topic!

About one piece of artwork I am curious about: Szuriel, does she look like her BotD art or something else?

Just looked through a friend's copy of this. I'm absolutely floored it's so incredibly good. My only complaint is that I wish there were more celestials in it but I still think it's totally awesome. :D

Also, you've given stats to Arshea, my favorite Emypreal Lord. For that, my Paladin bends the knee and offers praise to the staff of Paizo. ^_^

Okay, I missed the Alp the first read through.

It's kinda cute, until you see that it is Medium. Also how is it CN?

It gives you nightmares so it can drink your blood. Yeaaaaah...

Rysky,

No idea but I am glad that a) Barbatos doesn't have that sub-type.

But I am a little miffed we don't have more devils in this book.

I guess hardcover BotD will have a few.

If someone could, could you give a list of new Monstrous Humanoids and their CRs?

And if someone has time and is familiar with the various polymorph spells (specifically Beast Shape and Monstrous Physique), what creatures stand out to you as good potential forms?
