Help maintain the balance of the multiverse with Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Concordance of Rivals! Just as the Book of the Damned and the Chronicle of the Righteous documented the fiendish and celestial realms and their denizens, Concordance of Rivals reveals the monitors, the neutral inhabitants of the multiverse, each seeking to maintain their influence over existence. Discover the powers and agendas of some of the greatest forces in the multiverse, pushing to enact order, sow chaos, or maintain balance. Learn about the ancient primal inevitables, the all-powerful psychopomp ushers, the ever-changing protean lords, or the mysterious and all-knowing Monad. Additionally, mortal champions might follow the ideals that exist beyond good or evil as members of the diverse monitor sects, gain the power of a monitor demigod, become conjurers of monitor allies, or use rare rituals known only to monitors. The battle for balance continues and you can join with Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Concordance of Rivals!

Who would have thought this would still come?
It seems tjat the last few books of PF 1 are things people have been asking for years. :-)


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion Subscriber

Interesting.

Whoo :D

My hope was that for the final year of 1e they would release as much material usable for 1e on topics long mentioned but never covered(such as at least one example of all outsider demigod types, I want to see asura rana and raksahsa immortal statblocks!) and as many deity information as possible, and seems like they are doing just that!

Is "monitor" the new term for "morally neutral outsider", functioning in a manner similar to "celestial" and "fiend"?

This will be great. Can't wait.

Correct! We found it very important to find a word to stand alongside celestial and fiend lest we find ourselves constantly saying, "an outsider that is either lawful neutral, neutral, or chaotic neutral" a lot more than anyone would appreciate.

I am very down with this!

Yay.

Now, please tell me this will have more pages than usual! After 3 Book of the Damned (with the hardcover hinting of a fourth one), Chronicle of the Righteous felt 1) too short, and 2) kinda underwhelming.

What does Bethesda and Paizo have in common?

Now if we could only get a kaiju focused campaign setting book with stats for the rest of the kaiju (for 1e) and another softcover bestiary.Though I would still buy a hardcover bestiary with nothing but reprints. Also I would kill for a players companion that was completely filled with kineticist wild talents.

Ya know, monitor term is weird one because in retrospect its perfect name for good/evil axis neutral outsiders considering it does actually connect primary role of all of them(invetables monitor law, psychopomps death, aeons everything, proteans monitor chaos considering how religiously dedicated they are to spreading chaos...) ._. Like, you wouldn't think its something only now named

Anyhoo, while it'd be cool to have kaiju statblocks, I still kinda feel like kaiju statblocks dont' make sense unless you are simulating kaiju vs kaiju battles. Mostly because its kinda lame from Godzilla's perspective that bunch of adventurer's smaller than your toe claws stab you into foot until real life physics kick in and you collapse under your weight.

Psychopomps?! Cool. Perhaps I shall take a look at this when it hits the shelf...well, next year.

This sounds cool!


Definitely want this! Had me with the ushers. Time to throw cash at this.

So will this book just talk about them or will we get stats for any of these demi-god level entities?

Glad to see this. All we need now is a Starstone campaign guide.

Thank the gods! I've wanted a book on the neutral-aligned Outsiders, sorry, monitors, since... oh, 2e AD&D and Planescape? 25 years ago? TSR never gave us one, WotC never gave us one, but Paizo finally gives us one as a fond sendoff to 1e Pathfinder.

Bra-vo.

So you're telling me that an axiomatic one of these would technically be a "monitor monitor lizard"?

The "native of a lawfully-aligned plane" template is "Resolute", while the chaotic equivalent is "Entropic". Also "Primordial" for First Realm residents (I think) and "Dark" for Shadow Plane natives. Resolute and Entropic were introduced in Bestiary 2, but Primordial and Dark were only introduced in the Monster Summoner's Handbook.

But I can see a "Monitorish" or "Monitorial" template as an idea.

Well at least there is finally a term for all the neutral outsider groups.

Neutral on the Good-Evil axis, might still need one for the Law-Chaos axis.

We have Fiends for any-Evil, and (taking a guess) Celestials/Empyreals for any-Good. If you were talking about NE-N-NG groupings they don't really interact in the same way that CN-N-LN do.

The aeon deity/deities are the Monad, mentioned in the description by name!

Fiends/Fiendish/Unholy for Evil; Celestial/Empyreals/Holy for Good; we now have Monitor for Neutral on the Good-Evil axis; Anarchic/Entropic for Chaos; Axiomatic/Resolute for Law...

Umm...

Fiends cover Evil outsiders, i.e. LE, NE, & CE.

Celestials cover Good outsiders, i.e. LG, NG, & CG.

Monitors cover the remaining Neutral outsiders, i.e. LN, CN, & (T)N, which is the (neutral) Law-Chaos axis, right?

Or, at least, that's what I understood from what was written in the product description.

Am I mistaken here?

(T)N, NG and NE would be neutral on the Law-Chaos axis.


Hope we can see the Harrowed Medium sooner or later too.
Maybe Nethys could put it on the site for free after 2E is out.


That's surely a must have!

Again, what's a Monad?

Mentioned up above. New name for Aeons.

Err...

Isn't the Monad the god-like entity from which Aeons are derived &/or revere??

Yes, it's some sort of cosmic oneness/overgod that they believe exists and gives them direction/purpose.


Interesting. I couldn't remember it, or at least I didn't relate the name among the divines... I wonder if it will be able to grant access to domains and spells as a deity.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion Subscriber

It would be interesting if it did grant domains.

We'll probably get only one more book in the Campaign Setting line after this one (in june 2019).
August 2019 will probably bring the "Tyrant's Grasp" Poster Map Folio... ;-(
