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.

But when does Santa Claus get stats?
Santa Claus was stated a couple of years ago. Originally done for 3.5, Santa was converted to Pathfinder and is a 15th level arctic druid, but is only a CR 13 because his stats were all put into mental.

Anyone have a link?


I shouldn't be surprised about the lower number of 0HD races since the Starfinder Bestiary is supposed to come out later next year and that one should have a lot of them.

As far as I know, the Starfinder player races (lashunta, ratfolk, kasatha) are pretty much old and pre-existing from Pathfinder, so there are no guarantees of it having any new player races.


We are getting new races in the Starfinder Bestiary wich is a separate book from the Starfinder Roleplaying Book.


I'm not really happy with any re-prints this time around, rather seen 230 or so new monsters.


And I really hope this bestiary finally has the Kamaitachi and Nekomata.

On the bright side, many of these will be reprints from Iron Gods which you missed out!


Well when I asked Mr. Jacobs if we are getting the Cheshire Cat, Nekomata, or Bakeneko, he said that we are getting one of them. I am not sure wich one but at least one of them will be in the book;)

I'm surprised munavri is being reprinted since it was printed so recently.

I think the purpose of putting it in this book is to have it in the main rulebook line and thus in the PRD.

I'm hoping for bakeneko, myself.


I hope Nekomata, as I don't see the point in gentle creatures.

I hope those things end up in Starmaker.

I'm hoping for some updated devils from back in Council of Thieves. I mean we already got Nemesis Devil. Where's Cabal Devil or Chort? How about Firebreather devil?

I must concur. The cabal devil is a very good concept, and should be elevated in the bestiaries.

The same goes for the Azi dragons, that could be easily reskinned as a race of planar NE dragons.


Well there is a chance that the Azi dragons will appear in this book unless someone already asked and Mr. Jacobs said they are not.

I'm curious which names I can cut away after Bestiary 6.

If I recall my limited Russian correctly, "chort" means "devil"...so a devil called a devil--just Russian instead of English (or Common?)?

Chort = 'Demon' in oh so many Slavic languages. The word for 'devil' is 'diabol' or thereabouts.


Four,

Regardless of how it's done, I'd like to see giant pig devil again.


So chort devil means "demon devil", one type is bad enough but a crossbreeding of the two is vile;)

I'm a BIG fan of the Cabal devils....wish they were not so under represented. Would also like to see them tweaked a bit given all the mechanics that have been released since.....some hex's would be interesting....also the art for them could be better :P


Dragon,

Did you not look at the What Lies in Dust Bestiary? That's what I'm talking about.

Nighttree,

Agreed. Especially since I think they could be even more awesome at being witches than being...well whatever.

Personally, I'd like to see more creatures from real world folklore, especially Eastern European or ancient Middle Eastern cultures rather than creatures made up just to fill pages.

Technically every creature is made up and is needed to fill pages;)

To be familiars, I'd imagine.

I'm forgetting, but isn't there a twin-tailed cat from Japanese folklore that was vampiric in nature?

For the wily linguists up thread, the monster Mr. Seitz is referring to is the chortov devil - a raging creature made from the souls of those unfairly consigned to Hell.


Thank you Kal. :)


They had me at canine rougarou! I wanna know more about those!!

Also I hinted at Krampus at my last campaign so now next Christmas they're gonne get to fight the real one. Wonder what CR he is.

This Bestiary might be the first one I get instead of using the the other DM's books.

They had me at "bestiary";)


I can't wait to find out what these outer plane dragons are called both as a group and each type there in. I am hoping for Holy(NG), Dark(NE), Chaos(CN), Axiom(LN), and Eternal(N).


im waiting this stuff for holy dragon and hope for more mythic manasaputra and rakshasa.

Templates have me interested. Especially entothropes, because there's something about a goblin wereflea riding an irritated dire wolf.


I was thinking more like Swarm Formed creatures like from the Mummy, Steven. Or else the Scorpion King.

Maybe they'll be named after Life Savers flavors: pineapple, lime, orange, cherry, and lemon. ;)


I think the biggest danger in creating a 0-HD race that ventures too far from humanoid proportions is addressing how it can reasonably fit into the game alongside other character races (or even just in a campaign with player creatures like itself). The current equipment rules don't really accommodate exotic body types. One of the things that really nagged at me about D&D's push for allowing everything to be playable in the latter days of 2E and during much of the 3E run was this sort of issue. You had creatures that ended up being statted up and written just because someone thought that it would be really neat to have available, without a lot of consideration for if it was really playable.

I'm hopeful though, based on Paizo's track record, that this will turn out well.

Which would be which though?


A swarm called "Steven", Thomas that sounds weird;)

Well Cthulhudrew, just because it's a 0HD race doesn't mean you should let players use it and not all classes are equipment heavy. Also there are options to make the magic equipment requirements to survive a lot less of an issue.

The lifesaver flavor dragons will be in bestiary 12;)

I wonder how many entothropes there will be and what type of invertebrate animals did they choose.

I had not considered some of this...my concern has been the role-playing consequences (actually, your concerns are role-playing as well). The more exotic, unusual or terrifying the race a player chooses, the more likely there should be social repercussions. And some should be rather drastic.

Well Dragon person, it might be sentient swarm. Especially if it's a mummy from 1990. ;)


For a minute there Thomas I thought you were talking about Steven Universe but I am glad the reference is something else entirely:)


Dragon,

Nah. I'm just referencing the fact that there's a new thrope template coming...and it would be a nice way to do The Mummy. :)

That would be cats though, not bugs (and honestly, more of an ooze than a swarm).

LINNORMS!


It is unfortunate that we were finally get more types of giant roaches but they had to be cut:( Hopefully there will be some giant centipedes, jellyfish, sea anemones, sea urchins, and/or solifugids.

Eh. I was never fan of roaches anyway, Dragon.

LINNORMS! :D

Plus Horsemen! :D

But, how am I going to make my ash giant roach person?


Where did you read we got more giant roaches?

Nightterror,

No idea but I'm firmly against giant roaches on principle.
