How do you not own this yet?

*****

Seriously. This is seven years of Wayfinder magazine bestiary entries collected into one volume. 181 pages of new, original monsters. They range from the CR 1/4 creamfoot fennec (a cute little animal and new familiar option) to the massive CR 30 mawagetebab'dly (try saying that five times fast) which is a kaiju version of a hydra (!!!). There are monsters included here that are perfect for all terrains, various lands in Golarion, and suitable as encounters for various Paizo adventure paths. This is a resource a good GM should not pass up. Best of all, it's produced under the community use rules and therefore--FREE! Why would you not get this?


7 years worth of monsters

*****

And it's now in glorious color!

This is a truly beautiful product made by a wide assortment of wonderful people, both writers and artists, some who were able to break into the RPG market because of Wayfinder giving a spotlight on their creativity and dedication.

Collecting from 15 issues of Wayfinder there is no rhyme or reason here, similar to Paizo's Bestiarys, just a whole f&**ton of cool monsters to throw at your players and to help you shape adventures. And even better, it's free.


It's actually really good

*****

So today is 6/1/17 and I downloaded this, just to see what the good kids of Wayfinder have done. Because of this Bestiary, I went out and got the other wayfinders that I didn't have.

Went through and read every entry in the last few hours.

Art is on the good scale. Some I don't care for, but that's just an art style choice.

Most of the writing and the monsters are pretty good. Edit here and there, but nothing distracted from my reading.

The layout. (there is a scene from High Fidelity where Jack Black is listening to a demo tape of the band, cringes and says) "It's really freaking good."
I'm sure there was some guidance/permission and help on font choice etc because it's pretty close to likeness rights. It's good. Like really good.

These kids are alright in my book.
Well done.

Ooh, I made it in.

Guess someone liked the mini-me version of the Wendigo.

Oh wow the new art work for the Sun Hag is spectacular!

Scarab Sages

Sitting at work, unable to download it.

I'm sure that clock is going backward.

It's wonderful, but the font used for monster names really has to go.

Hey Rysky are you going to go through the monsters on this one with your thoughts like you did with Bestiary 6? :)

Not at all!

I just saw that it was Mikaze that wrote it and it made me sad since I miss him.

After a while, I found myself unconsciously thinking of the 'un-named tiefling barbarian Dungeon iconic' as being officially called 'Mikaze'.

Heh, me too :3

Scarab Sages

Well, I've had time for a skim through, but it's going to take all weekend (and then maybe a few more) to properly read this.

That's an impressive number of creatures.
You could possibly run a campaign, using just the creatures in Bestiary 1 and this book.


Good to see some free Wayfindery Bestiary stuff out there. ;)

I really like what I have seen so far. Doubly so since it's free.

Any chance this will have a print edition?

Unlikely. Once you surpass 84 pages, saddle stitch is no longer possible. Binding and cover options make this more expensive to print too.

Probably possible for people to print on their own though....

This is a beautiful book which I'm glad to have contributed to.

Hey, that's *my* name! :)

Just added to my downloads, but I'm so tired after getting home from PaizoCon, I'm not going to really grok any of it tonight. Look forward to spending more time with it when I get a chance.

Rysky, that'd be cool if you want through and did quick thoughts...

We'd need to add a few more pages (or drop one) as well ... 181 is not a good print page count. ;) Rest assured if we ever decide to print it, that will get done. ;)

Aadeem-Sahreah, it says "Great Lizard" but I believe it's supposed to say "Badass Crocodile". It steal heat for it's chompy-chomp.

Aequoreal, ish squishy and mah squishy and friendshaped celestial jellyfish!

They deal in memories and dreams... I'm pretty sure they also talk like a Hanar.

Players, how to know if your GM hates you? Albatrocities.

Yes, I rolled my eyes at that name.

Hmmm, I like Alchemical Golems, but how can I make them even creepier? How?

... ah, Alchemical Dreadnaught solves that conundrum that I wasn't really hoping to have solved by making it undead-er.

Did I mention it was creepy?

Deranged undead healers, interesting.

"I'm helping!" the Aridnyk cheers as it blasts you with Inflicts. "Still helping!" it says again as it keeps blasting your corpse.

They're haunting beautiful (pun not intended) and can instead of appearing as a mish mash of animals appear as a holy symbol of the deity they served in life. Cool!

I am slightly disappointed that the Axe Handle Hound can't transform into a weapon to be wielded, but that's just me.

It's diet amuses me though, I'd gleefully pair it with a rust monster and they would be bestest best friends.

OOO!

I love bears and hyenas and the Nandi combines both! And it eats brains to power up! It's adorable!

Considering the changes that overcome a Savant I wish there were rules for them like they do with other modified monsters.
