Game Masters, get your plotty fingers ready—Green Ronin Publishing wants to bring you a whole new horde of monsters for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game!

It's no secret that the original Advanced Bestiary is a favorite among the Paizo staff. Every in-house copy is beaten, worn, weathered and falling apart. When Green Ronin announced a Kickstarter to convert it to the Pathifnder Roleplaying Game we were very excited—and now you can see why! The Advanced Bestiary is back, bigger than ever, and in full color! Almost 300 pages long and featuring over 100 templates to sink your teeth into, this go-to book will give you endless variety for your game. Whether you want to use the amalgam template to mash together two creatures worthy of any mad wizard, the blood knight template to create a terrifying cavalier, a daemon-hosted umbral dragon, or a transforming alchemical golem, it's all within your power with the Advanced Bestiary! ...Now if you'll excuse me, I have some encounters to write up and some blank character sheets to have handy.

Check out everything else from Green Ronin right here, including the Dragon Age and A Song of Ice and Fire roleplaying games, not to mention the superhero gaming classic, Mutants & Masterminds!

I have my Kickstarter copy, and it is glorious!


I brought this, I can vouch for it!


That...is one truly MENACING if not downright TERRIFYING Burning Skeleton! Or is it a Burning Skeletal Champion (can that even be created within society rules I wonder)? I wonder what size it is (aka gargantuan or colossal)? Either way, I don't envy the party taking that monstrosity on. Hope they brought a cleric cause HELL'S BELLS their gonna NEED ONE! ^_~

I enjoyed getting to write for this.


After all the effort put into this from the design perspective, I am so glad to see it come to life.

I would like to apologize now to all the players who character's are killed, maimed, spindled, folded or otherwise mutilated by any and all foes created with this tome.

I am willing to take personal responsibility for the existence of the swarm blooded template. Just be glad the sample critter wasn't a Mi-Go. "IT BLEEDS SPIDERS!"

Add the eldritch template to the swarm and you have a Mi-Go that bleeds WTF spiders!


It was an honor to get to contribute to this project. Just downloaded the HeroLab files and I can't wait to get my hands on the hard copy.


While my 3.5 Advanced Bestiary is in good health and still in use, I want this very much and will buy it as soon as my wallet allows.

In my current Pathfinder campaign I'm using the blood knight template, dread ghoul template, and dread ghast template (all with slight modifications), and I plan to stat a negative-energy infused advanced bodak very soon.


Whispers into Wolf's ear There are new templates there...

Dude, I already said I'd get it when I could afford it. What do you want from me?!

Hmm... My money, I suppose.

Looking forward to seeing how things are changed for Pathfinder too.

As I said earlier, I'm making a negative-energy-charged bodak for my game right now using the 3.5e Advanced Bestiary. It has stuff that relates to Turn and Command Undead, so I'm interested in how that stuff will be changed for Pathfinder, or if it will be changed.

Also looking forward to seeing the sample monsters statted in Pathfinder style, so I can see where certain properties go on the sheet.

Just making sure you won't change your mind...

I don't get money based on GR sales, regretfully.
