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!

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 shitty 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).
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.
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 super excited for this Bestiary more than any before it for one simple reason. One word even. KRAMPUS! I cant wait to see what Paizo comes up with for stats of this legendary creature. I hope they do some other holiday creatures. Samhain maybe. Also interested in a lovcraftian player race. March cant come fast enough.
Only 200 monsters? I hope there aren't many re-entries from AP's and inner sea bestiary then, more new monsters. The only monster from ISB I don't really mind having twice is the whirlmaw.
I'm happy to see Krampus!
Rougarou is nice too, but the other things I read there i'm not a fan of, but that also happend with Bestiary 5, and it turned out they saved the best monsters for last anyway. Can't wait for the cover of this.
Agreed. I've been waiting for this for quite some time. It was my favourite encounter in 3.5, and I even made a campaign around it. Can't wait to do it against, but with it being in Pathfinder. The fact that this is back makes me super happy.
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.
WAIT. Rougarou as a playable race? I've read about some pretty horrifying legends about those things, lol. I'm going to assume that they're not going to have the racial ability "turn people who see them into more Rougarou".
