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!

Best Bestairy to date in my opinion

5/5

If I could rate 6 stars I would. This is simply the best Bestiary Paizo has released to date. The usual stunning artwork is present for every single monster entry and I cannot heap enough praise on them for this. As usual there is a wide array of challenge rating available in this book from cr ½ all the way to cr30 and the cr30 monsters are no joke! Honestly I feel like someone at Paizo heard the rule “If you stat it they will kill it” and laughed maniacally and said “NOT ON MY WATCH!!” then proceeded to make the Arch Devils and I love them for it. The horsemen are here and so are their horses! Best of all Krampus and he is amazing I won’t spoil it but whatever you wanted from Karmpus you are getting, I imagine for the month of December this year our party will cross paths with the naughty list, and according to his description he has a long memory for those who make that list so it might be our new December tradition for years to come.

The best and most welcome change of all are the monster descriptions / stories. Bestiary 5 was the worst for these, some monsters literally getting 1 sentence descriptions. This book really addressed that issue with flying colours. The big bads all get full page descriptions and the smaller guys each get at least a paragraph. This is one of the best resources for campaign and encounter ideas and you will not be disappointed with this purchase.

As with all bestiaries before it there are new player races included in this and they are all pretty great. The unfortunate thing is as far as I can tell there is no easy way to dig them out quickly you pretty much need to read through it cover to cover and just remember what ones there are. It is a minor gripe for me because I love flipping through the bestiaries but it was something one of my group members mentioned.

People often complain about having a lot of high CR monsters in these books sighting that “most people never make it far enough to encounter these things” Well I come from a group running a 3 year campaign and I for one am thankful as heck for their inclusion. You need big bads to keep people playing keep the challenges ramping up and keep the players striving for that next big victory.


Krampus!

5/5

While it is true that B6 skews towards high-CR end of the spectrum, it also features some excellent design, both creative and rules-wise. There are some absolutely great monsters here which fill thematic and mechanical gaps long time standing. Notably, many previously published monsters are not just straight reprints, but received overhauls to stats and abilities.

And it has Krampus. Krampus, people. KRAMPUS.


Good. Lots of high CR critters

4/5

This Bestiary has a lot of really cool monsters and solid art. Its a good book. Go buy it.

Two problems hold it back from 5 stars.

1) The creatures within are almost all CR 10 or higher. Most games don't make it far enough to fight super high CR monsters. Even if your game does get high level, it is sometimes more easy to apply templates to mid CR creatures.

2) It feels rushed in a few places. Several monsters that are ported in from adventure paths, such as the Erodaemon Daemon, have had their flavor text hacked down to the bone to squeeze things onto a single page.


The Best Bestiary of Big, Bad, Bad Guys

5/5

Each Pathfinder bestiary seems to follow a certain theme, and Bestiary 6's theme is really big, really powerful, and really scary enemies. For this reason alone I'd heartily recommend it to anyone who, like me, just gets a kick out of seeing creatures who you don't expect to be fighting until after campaigning for a year with the same character. Some of the highlights include the Archdevils (all eight of them, not simply two or three), all four of The Horsemen, as well as stats for their mounts, some more Great Old Ones (including one who may as well be an actual Outer God), some more powerful goodly outsiders, loads of nature-protecting spirits both good and bad, and Qlippoth Lords who I've been waiting to get some love, any at all, since they were mentioned way back in I believe Inner Sea Gods.

Apart from that this book gives love to a couple other kinds of monster that haven't really received the attention they deserved until now. Things like vermin, oozes, and plants are finally pants-wettingly terrifying, ranging from moss men who can raise forests against puny civilized settlements, to people who transform into were-insects, to what amounts to an animate Sphere of Annihilation. Constructs also get some attention, particularly in the form of the Charnal God, which is the embittered essence of a now-dead deity who lashes out through its statues at its worshippers, or enemies of the faith, or really, anyone at all. Incidentally, that entry has a great bit of lore for those familiar with The Books of the Damned.

And speaking of the books, this bestiary also fulfils another function that I feel like a lot of these main product line bestiaries should, namely cherry-picking fun creatures from the other product lines and making them more accessible. We get lots of that here. I recognized monsters from a few different adventure paths such as Wrath of the Righteous and Hell's Rebels, as well as The Books of the Damned and some of the more original creatures from The Inner Sea Bestiary and Occult Bestiary.

To top it all, this book placed emphasis on some enemy types I am just a fan of, clockworks and qlippoth, primarily. I'm already planning new characters around the clockwork hound alone.

If there are any flaws in this book they are two-fold. Firstly, because we have so many powerful monsters with two-page spreads we get fewer monsters overall. Secondly, I don't really feel like we got much more in the way of PC races in this book. 0HD races certainly, but they all have the distinct feel of NPC-only stuff to me, though it was still cool to see races of the fey and aberration types.

All in all, flaws aside, this is a very solid edition to an already solid product line, and it's well worth the asking price. Ia' Ia' Tawil at'Umr!


Perhaps My Favorite Bestiary Yet

5/5

As a GM, I adore waiting for the new bestiaries. I'm much more of a crunch fan, preferring to use my own lore for worlds when preferable, so my Pathfinder book collection is usually limited to what my players can make use of, i.e. rulebooks with classes and/or races, and cause of this, what I buy for my own little collection of just-for-me books is limited to bestiaries on most days, so I await these books with an almost religious fervor.

And boy was this worth the wait. So, what's new? Well, there's a lot of higher level monsters. I don't know the exact number, but it's definitely worth the wait.

This book OOZES flavor (and in the case of the Blights, the Oozes have flavor). Every single monster and ability feels thematic, from the Wild Hunt, who can share senses and give each other bonuses, to the Archdevils, whose every abilities fits with the vicious bureaucracy of Hell.

A handful of monsters, in my opinion, aren't particularly up to snuff- I think that the demon section wasn't perfect- but that might just be my personal wish for the Demon Lords. Ignoring that, the high level monsters in this are magnificent. Each one feels like a unique, centuries old, ready-to-kill being. Even reading the stat blocks makes you go 'oh. that's scary.' With entities like Mephistoles, who can force you to speak the truth to him, and Ouroboros, whose self-devouring grants him regenerative properties, they all feel unique and ready to go.

I could talk for pages about the different monsters and abilities, but here's the biggest highlight: not a single monster felt redundant. Each felt like they fit into their own niche, could be easily slotted into a campaign, and each felt like a part of a far bigger world than anyone could have imagined.

In addition, the art in this is just fantastic. It adds to the feel with absolute beauty, from the triple-snaked Geryon to the thousands of snakes that make up the aforementioned Ouroboros (sue me, I'm a snake lover). My one big gripe with the art, however, is that the four horsemen, who I was looking forward to seeing in new stat blocks, had their art reused from the book of the damned. Having already read that particular book, I felt kinda sad not seeing new art for the four of them, although this can easily be ignored, given the quality of the other art.

Aside from my aforementioned issue, this book is a masterpiece, and well-worth getting, especially if you're a GM like me with a penchant for higher-level monsters.

That would be hilarious.

Actually, no. They have a box on their person that makes them seem human. Otherwise, just turning people into more Rougarou would go against what we know about genetics.

Good to hear that we are getting some cool and interesting creatures and beasties to ruin people's day, or improve their lives greatly. Of course fighting arch Devils or the four horsemen is going to be a sure fire way to have a unprepared pcs head beaten in. Still, if they pull it off, they have major bragging rights...until they show up again to get revenge.

MOAR monsters to design with, whoohoo!!

Depends on how they illustrate him. If they take cues from Clash of the Titans, we would have a frightening Charon indeed. However, if they take cues from the actual greek myths, you have a Septuagenarian stearing the boat. If they take cues from Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, you get someone in their 50s and a source of comedy.

I approve either way.

The Rougarou are aliens from the Canis Majoris constellation. I even know which star. There are four varieties: Red, Grey, Black, and White. When ever they came to visit, they could "shapeshift" into human form by using a device that makes them look human. They are humanoid wolves normally, and they are the cause of most of our werewolf legends.

The Kitsune on the other hand, are from another star in the Canis Majoris constellation and when they visit they have the same holographic technology. Or what I just said can be taken as nonsense. However, I know it's the truth.

Not the appropriate place to bring up this request—and as mentioned above and in the comments, this is not the actual cover art.

Let's keep this thread focused on Bestiary 6. Thanks.


This is totally awesome. Don't know what else to say right now beyond that. I'm really surprised it's happening so soon, but definitely pleased. Really looking foreward to the Green Man in particular. I assumed we would never get one because the term "Leshy" was used elsewhere. I wonder which more obscure mythological and folkloric creatures will be used, I'm sure there will be a lot, they're just not big enough names to be listed in the product description. I'd like to see the Curupira which was cut from B5.

On the subject of Naiads, I'm predicting that they will be extremely attractive and available as both genders. As of B5, many traditionally monogendered races were made into normal, two-gendered ones, and I'm guessing that'll happen here. I hope the artwork is female, though, since I never pass up the opportunity to oggle fey women.

On the subject of the Yaddithian, I'd never heard of it before, but it looks awesome. I love PC races that are just totally bizarre and random and out there. It looks really "Mos Eisley Cantina-ish," which I can appreciate.

Also, Krampus, Mephisto, Four Horsemen, Wild Hunt, awesome, which I think goes without saying. This is clearly a Mythic bestiary like B4, which explains the smaller number of creatures. That's fine, considering B5 had no demigods at all, and I do not see as in any way indicative of Paizo running out of creature ideas or wanting to stop producing Bestiaries, just to inform those of us who are inevitably going to fear the worst about that.

I approve of Bestiary 6, and I will be getting a copy, even though I did my own rougarou race for Pathways earlier. :-) Besides, Szuriel.

Will we ever see female satyrs? They would be the obvious counterpart to the male dryad in Hell's Vengeance.

Given the fact that the company's creative director counts Harryhausen as one of the most incredible talents film has ever produced and that the company's publisher has a life sized replica bubo in his office... not sure why this should be a surprise! :-P


i hope a legendary rakshasa like Ravanna in the Hindy mythology or a mythical paragon empyreal angel. I no is already in bestiary 5 in a standard monster but a man can dream anything.

I do. I don't run my campaigns in Golarion, but in my own world system. I never have opened up the Inner Sea Guide in a while. Though I do use Inner Sea Magic. My apologies if this certain Creative Director feels slighted by my comment. Besides, a certain self publisher likes Ray Harryhausen as well.

I too would like Ravana. It was really cool to see Kabandha in B5, albeit as a race of creatures and not a Rakshasa.


While I've enjoyed all the Bestiaries to date, I was a tad disappointed in 5, not being happy with the Annunaki and the other "aliens" that popped up. But I'm very optimistic for this one!


2 people marked this as a favorite.

If you dislike aliens, those are almost certainly going to be Starfinder territory at this point, though they could still be used in Pathfinder for those who want them. I, however, do like aliens, and I am pleased to see an alien-centric bestiary IN ADDITION to the more traditional ones.

Little nervous about the Rougarou. I'm worried that it won't be used to its full potential as a lot of the abilities it had in the myth are beyond what PCs are capable of by default. Kind of similar to how I feel about the Kitsune and Tengu. I think Cynocephali might have been a better choice for the role of PC dog-men.

Still, I'm glad to see it in some form. Nice to see something from Cajun folklore. I'm pleased that the roster of new world creatures is slowly but surely expanding. Another Cajun creature I'd like to see is the Letiche, or Honey Island Swamp Monster. Especially if they use the less down-to-earth version, with reptilian and crustaceal features along with hominid ones. Another is the Parlangua, a near invulnerable crocodilian humanoid with a potential sonic attack.

Part of me hopes that the Four Horsemen will be the biblical ones....but for some reason I'm guessing they're going to chuck Conquest out and shove Pestilence in....


Anyhow, this is a much faster turnaround between Bestiary 5 and Bestiary 6 than I expected. From the description, I'm hoping for some more CR 26+ monsters that aren't horrible. Also hoping we can FINALLY get the Strix and Gillmen into a bestiary. They are the only two races in the ARG which aren't in any of the Bestiaries 1-5.

I'd actually prefer more species without genders or sexes.

huh...pleasantly surprised, although I would guess this might be because the late fall release that the bestiary normally slots into is going to the Starfinder monster book (although if it is I hope they go with field guide or some other name)

It's pushed early, but if bestiaries are every other year, than 2017 was kind of the "scheduled" year for the next hardcover book.

An Villain Codex, NPC Codex, and Bestiary 6 all in a row is a bit unusual, but I guess this is to free up rules design for Starfinder?

Also please...MORE SAKHILS. Definitely one of my new favorite outsider groups, and would love to see more.


I wonder if the outer plane dragons will actually be associated with a specific plane or be like "Good Aligned Planes"/"Evil Aligned Planes"/"Chaos aligned planes"/"Law aligned planes"/"Neutral aligned planes".


*agrees with Jawa* More Sakhils.

Milo,

Uhm Golorian's arch daemons are the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. IE Death, Famine, War and Pestilence.

Unlike many people, I have absolutely no interest in Starfinder.


I hope the Lashunta finally gets into a hardcover bestiary. Also wouldn't mind if the Strix, Gillmen, and Syrinx made it in.

I hope the art for the naiad is female, good looking/cute, and has blue skin.

I hope that at least one of these guys made in; Cheshire Cat, Nekomata, or Bakeneko.

Well, it's official. I no longer need to kill PCs with monsters. I can just drop a stack of a half-dozen bestiaries on their players instead. :P
(Would also work on minis. Players are considerably harder to replace.)

Ye gods, another Bestiary? Well, that's it, I'm done with these books, no way will I ever get anoth --

Strange new player-character-suitable races like the canine rougarou,

Okay, maybe just one more. PS: Please let the rougarou be wolflike, and not humanoid pugs or something.

And more on the Four Horsemen, Archdevils, and the Wild Hunt and Krampus is good too. More templates are always great.

Little nervous about the Rougarou. I'm worried that it won't be used to its full potential as a lot of the abilities it had in the myth are beyond what PCs are capable of by default. Kind of similar to how I feel about the Kitsune and Tengu. I think Cynocephali might have been a better choice for the role of PC dog-men.

Still, I'm glad to see it in some form. Nice to see something from Cajun folklore. I'm pleased that the roster of new world creatures is slowly but surely expanding. Another Cajun creature I'd like to see is the Letiche, or Honey Island Swamp Monster. Especially if they use the less down-to-earth version, with reptilian and crustaceal features along with hominid ones. Another is the Parlangua, a near invulnerable crocodilian humanoid with a potential sonic attack.

A bit OT but I never even heard of Letiche or Parlangua, though I've never read a lot about Cajun folklore besides Rougarou, Peremalfait, and the Cajun version of the Wild Hunt. Oh, and those legends about Jean Lafitte's Black Dogs. Do you know of any websites with information on these critters?

Unlike many people, I have absolutely no interest in Starfinder.

I do. Besides that, I have interest in this bestiary as well. ;)
