A Rampage of New 5th Edition Monsters! DM: “A mysterious figure in a cloak approaches you in the tavern...” PALADIN: “Aha! This must be a wizard with a map to a dungeon!” DM: “…and he’s ticking.” ROGUE: “RUN!”

Whether you need scuttling dungeon denizens, alien horrors, or sentient avatars of the World Tree, the Creature Codex has you covered! Nearly 400 new foes for your 5th Edition game—everything from acid ants and grave behemoths to void giants and zombie lords.

The 424 pages of the Creature Codex include:
  • A dozen new demons and five new angels
  • Wasteland dragons and dinosaurs
  • All-new golems, including the altar flame golem, doom golem, and keg golem
  • Elemental lords and animal lords to challenge powerful parties
  • Chieftains and other leaders for ratfolk, centaurs, goblins, trollkin, and more
  • New undead, including a heirophant lich to menace lower-level characters

...and much more! Use them in your favorite published setting, or populate the dungeons in a world of your own creation. Pick up Creature Codex and surprise your players with monsters they won’t be expecting!

Creature Codex is a gorgeous, well put together book that reflects the usual Kobold Press quality.

Kobold Press Creature Codex Video Review | Nerd Immersion

Awesome book full of Mythological creatures! Love the Aatxe, Peluda, Green Knight, Gaki, Ichneumon, Kallikantzaros, Kulmking, Ouroboros, Piasa, Pixiu, and Ziphius!

Not a big fan of the Gulon (why it isn't a wolverine?), Lou Carcolh (Love the artwork, but it is much to low Challenge rating for my taste), Nalusa Falaya (also STUNNING artwork, but the mythical abilities are missing, especially the ability to turn victims into murderous evils), Nian (not a fan of anything, much too low level), Scitalis (Too weak for my taste), Wind Weasel (Only thing I don't like is its speed and why it isn't called Kamaitachi?)

Most of the other non-mythology monsters are very awesome as well! Cool golems, cool oozes! cool! good buy for me! Hope to see more Bestiaries from you guys FULL of Mythological monsters! Especially more of the unknown myth monsters from Australia or from the abookofcreatures website!

Are the Creature Codex and the Tome of Beasts ever going to be available for Pathfinder (1 or 2)?
I have the PDFs just because I wanted them, but I would like to include them in some of my Pathfinder games and I don't have time to work out the conversions.

Hey there! Great question!

The books won't be released as Pathfinder 1E books at this point certainly, but ... who knows what will happen with Pathfinder 2E?

Right now, the Kobolds (like everyone else, really) are kind of just waiting to see what 2E looks like once it's officially released.
