That's why you apply the Lich template to a dragon capable of casting spells as an 11th level caster. Presto, dragon lich.

Check out the template. Anything that meets the caster requirements can do it. Frankly, it's the only way that works when the Dracolich is closed content, and I'm pretty sure that's a large part of why they modified the template the way they did.

Also a reminder, vote Mantis Shrimps and Pistol Shrimps for Bestiary 5!

Oh Yeah! Year of the Shrimp!

Or... Book of the Shrimp! Yeah!


Bakeneko & Nekomata

They aren't joke monsters like Drop Bears are, so I don't understand why they still aren't there, they are the most famous monsters from asia.

Never heard of them :P

I still like the idea of a Butterfly swarm. One that consists of white butterflies that turn blood red after draining their victim. Natural creatures of course, nothing unliving about them (except that vampires might be fond of them).

Time elementals could also be fun. Completely harmless until you get too close and you end up either a baby or old and wrinkly. Until the thing moves away and time is restored to normal.

I have to say i actually only heard of them the first time, when sincubus mentioned them too.

I would say the most famous monsters from asia would be dragons (which are covered in B3 by the imperial dragons) followed by Qilin/Kirin (also covered in B3).

and don't forget the pistol shrimp's dire and giant versions, musket shrimp and cannon shrimp!


Just look them up on google images and google, the results will be endless. They are in horror games, asian monster books, pokemon and many many many many other stuff, Final Fantasy to Lufia.

They are pretty much the evil version of Kitsune, and probably just as famous in Japan.

I'd prefer my copy of inner sea bestiary weren't made almost completely obsolete while the next Bestiary's space filled with monsters i already have.


I would be fine if the Innersea Bestiary become obsolete like the bonus bestiary. It saves space for me and I like hardcovers a lot better. Plus they already put the races(except Gillmen and Strix) from the ARG in the Bestiary 4, so if they can reprint from another hardcover then why not a Golarion specific book.

A ghost template specific for animals that grants ghost touch for there natural attacks and damage based on there new charisma mod.

Some new 0HD races like a fey touched/blooded race.

More types of Rakshasa.

Those prehistoric horses the size of small dogs plus some megafauna.

Some cacti based plant creatures.

A 0HD plant race that is effected normally by min-affecting effects.

Fey based race that are the ancestors to Gnomes.

Some more types of Robots.(especially one that is like the robot from Forbidden Planet or lost in space TV series)

More creatures from the dimension of dreams(some non-evil ones).

More creatures from movies and pulp comics.

More shapeshifting creatures, like ones that can take the shape of objects like weapons, armor, treasure, etc..

More art themed monsters like ones that use painting, sculpting, pottery, etc. as a weapon or means of defense.

More creatures from myth especially Celtic, Native American(north and south), African, Australian, Japanese, Norse, Russian, and Polynesian.

Some more Kaiju would be nice.

Grendel's Mother would be cool.

More multi-headed dragons except three headed, we have enough of those.

More "tauric" creatures with lower body of tigers, deer, etc..

More types of Tane.

Giants based on non-human races such as Lashunta, Catfolk, Goblins, etc. maybe some of these giants could be from other planets.

More types of lycanthropes(fox, panther, owl, snake, etc.).

The difference here is that with the races from ARG there was at least something added that didn't exist before, that being a statblock for a finished, playable npc, while the ARG still has all the alternate racial traits etc. going for it.

I can also understand reprints from APs and modules, because buying those solely for the monster section is just not economical, and they have much more important content to make them worthwhile.

The bonus bestiary was a free download. You didnt have to spend money to get a copy of that. With the Inner Sea Bestiary however a proper copy had a cost attached to it, be it PDF or print. If the monsters from there would be copied to a core bestiary, the entire purpose of the purchase of that book would be defeated. And people who did buy it effectively lose money, unless they want to skip the next core bestiary.


Yes but there are people that do not buy Golarion specific books, or they only get hardcovers regardless if they are world specific or not, or they just didn't buy the Innersea Bestiary. So reprinting them in a hardcover Bestiary is useful and practical. Also some DMs only allow playable races from hardcover books so that could be a problem as well.

While I can't be 100% certain of exactly what creatures have already been suggested (or even implemented), I'd personally love some of the following.

Creatures with relations to multiple elemental planes. Beings of smoke and magma would be nice, and races relating to combinations of elements would be cool too!

Perhaps some things to fill out the loveless subtypes of creatures from the ARG? I'd adore more catfolk-, ratfolk-, grippli-, kitsune-, strix-, vanara-, and wayang-subtyped creatures, in entirely new varieties.

More weird variations on races for certain types of areas? There are already drow, duergar, and svirfneblin for down below, and monkey goblins for the jungle, so why not some polar varieties of halflings and catfolk, orangutang hobgoblins, mountainous grippli! The possibilities are limitless.

...Oh bother, this was a mostly race-based post, wasn't it?

That seems to be either a marketing or a customer habit problem then, since all creatures in the book can be applied to other settings just as well as all creatures in the core bestiaries, it's just the arbitrary limitation you put on your own purchases that prevents you from just getting the book.

Shadow Lodge

I was under the impression that the monsters within the Inner Sea Bestiary were intended to stay Golarion specific, and not show up in the setting neutral Bestiaries.

That's why the title of the book was "Inner Sea Bestiary" and not "Small Bestiary to Appease Customers Who Prefer a Bestiary to the NPC Codex".


I would like to see some monsters inspired by some of my favorite video games. Obviously copyright would prevent naming them such as they are but Tyrants from RE. Pyramid heads from SH. Creepers from Minecraft. Come to mind. More crypto creatures would be nice too not too mention things like Slenderman, The Rake, Slit mouth women, Some more varied versions of monsters. A few of the kaiju like creatures from Shadow of the Colossus. More Kaiju obviously. Alien races that might blend well with the feel of the new Outer Dragons, Also would love to see some old monsters dug up from some of my favorite old d&d settings. Muls, Carrionettes, and others. I'm a mostly old school gamer so I love the old 2nd edition settings, Al Qadim, Ravenloft, and Dark Sun. I realize most monsters like these are copyright protected but a few are open to an original interpretation. And love to see more vampires, undead, and lycanthropes as always

The only creatures from the Innersea Bestiary I consider too world specific to be in a hardcover book would be the unique outsiders and maybe the spawn of Rovagug though the Tarrasque is already in Bestiary I.

Oh and Treeshades this is a wishlist for what people want not what you don't want other people to have so don't be a "sincubus".

There are several things that come to mind including:
Dragons - as requested before. Most alignments covered except NG & NE:
NG = Adamantine, Battle, Beast, etc.
NE = Orange Dragon (Dragon Compendium Vol. 1), Gray Dragon (Dragon #146), Hex (DR #343)

Wolfwere - wolf turn into human
Werejackal - lycanthrope jackal
Demodand familiar
Lythari - an CG elven version of the werewolf
Hengeyokai - a humanoid with the face of an animal including: Badger, Carp, Cat, Crab, Crane, Dog, Fox, Hare, Monkey, Raccoon dog, Rat, Sparrow, Weasel
Spirit folk - bamboo, river, sea
Yuan-ti halfblood and abomination (nagaji seem to cover purebloods)
More oriental monsters including more Kami

I wouldn't say they are the most famous monster from Asia. But they can't put everything that is awesome in one book. There is always a chance for it in Bestiary 5 or an AP

+1

Reprinting things from the Inner Sea Bestiary (a dedicated Bestiary book), would be like them reprinting goblins from Bestiary 1 for me. Maybe if the bestiary goes out of print, but until then I would prefer to keep hardcover bestiaries focused on new monster + critters from AP's, Campaign Setting books, and Player companions.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

anyone...I have to wonder if Next fall we will see:

NPC codex 2

which will mean another smaller bestiary? I would love a dedicated Mythic Bestiary with the Horsemen, Archdevils, Elemental Lords, Eldest, etc statted, along with some other high end foes.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Me hi hope,

all other empyreal lord, especially ragathiel

new rakshasa from high level especially mythic

new angels more porwerful of solar like seraphin ( the highest cords of angels who is the exceptionaly the one who is side of god throne like métatron but adapted for pathfinder pantheon)

all others demon lord

colossus

ravanna, king of rakshasa but possibility from guarding this creature for god level like is mythologie ( if one days pathfinder make equivalent of deity and demi-god 3.0 handbook).

That all for now.


Why not just a Bestiary 5 and NPC 2? NPC has much less fans anyway


MMCJawa, reprinting from a softcover world specific book to a world neutral hardcover book is not the same as reprinting goblins from one world neutral hardcover book to another. Not everyone buys ever book so reprinting can be a good thing.


Gancanagh wrote:

I wouldn't be so sure about that. NPC codex won an award at the ennies. It's an incredibly useful book from the GM point of view. And they typically only do...3? setting neutral hardcovers a year (Can't remember if Ultimate Equipment was this or last year).

Strategy Guide and Advanced Class Guide are taking up 2 of those spots we know, and on top of that they are doing Inner Sea Gods. I doubt there is room on the schedule for both books as hardcovers.

While I do agree with the later, 3shades is bringing up a good point. I'm sure some creatures like the Water Wraith or the Whirlmaw could totally be thrown into the Bestiary 5, but they would be making the Inner Sea Bestiary obsolete for the people that spent the money to buy it. Remember, the Bonus Bestiary was free. You can't really compare the two. And personally, I felt the creatures from the Bonus Bestiary were a waste of space in B3, since anyone could get the BB for free.

That all said, I'd like to see the three spheres of angels done. At the very least, the First Sphere (The top three)

Seraphim
Cherubim
Ophanim
Dominions
Virtues
Powers
Principalities
Archangels

I'd be pretty happy.

Yeah, I've gotten so much usage out of the NPC Codex. Especially when it comes to statting casters, as I never know what spells to give them, or gear because I never know what gear to give people. I would love to see an NPC Codex 2 with the APG/UM/UC classes. Buuuut, I'd also like to see a Bestiary 5 :)

Also, I remember that the Strategy Guide doesn't quite count for the hardcover. In addition, subscribers can opt out of it without cancelling their subscription. That still leaves three hardcovers though (including a Bestiary/Codex), so who knows *shrug*


It doesn't count as a hardcover? I figured part of the reason it was being released was to lighten the load of hardcover work to allow Inner Sea Gods without breaking the devs and editors. Since IIRC Inner Sea gods will be in the campaign line, not the neutral hardcover line.

I could be misinterpreting what they said to be honest. I just remember saying that the Strategy Guide isn't actually a part of the subscription, so it won't be billed to us subscribers when it comes out (unless we want it).

Silver Crusade

Still pulling for alien angels/celestials. :)


I'm hoping for some of the creatures that have received mentions but no stats, like...

Akyrak (Pathfinder 10: A History of Ashes, pg. 64)
Drake, caustic (Pathfinder 4: Fortress of the Stone Giants, pg. 71)
Drake, lightning (Pathfinder 4: Fortress of the Stone Giants, pg. 71)
Drake, thunder (Pathfinder 4: Fortress of the Stone Giants, pg. 71)
Dream wolf (Guide to Darkmoon Vale, pg. 3)
Elemental, time (The Great Beyond, pg. 50)
Formian, wasp (The Great Beyond, pg. 30)
Ixion worm (Princes of Darkness, pg. 13)
Keld piskie (D0: Hollow's Last Hope. pg. 5)
Kyton, oitos (Princes of Darkness, pg. 24)
Loa spirits (W2: River into Darkness, pg. 18)
Silkgoyle (Guide to the River Kingdoms, pg. 33)
Skullwasp (Elves of Golarion, pg. 18)
Wisagatkak (Princes of Darkness, pg. 18)

Other types of gigas besides the Hell gigas and Abyss gigas (Nirvana and Maelstrom have received passing mentions).

Any of the groupings of dragons mentioned in Pathfinder 4: Fortress of the Stone Giants, pgs. 70-71:

Abomination dragons: Hoarfrost, rot, ruin, rust, suffocation
Humour dragons: Choleric, melancholy, phlegmatic, sanguine
Mineral dragons: Coal, pyrite, silicon, sulfur
Thaumaturgic dragons: Abjuration, conjuration, divination, enchantment, evocation, illusion, necromancy, transmutation
Miscellaneous types: Gray, sin, virtue

Any number of alien races and creatures mentioned in Distant Worlds.

The elemental lords (Ayrzul, Hshurha, Kelizandri, and Ymeri)

Furthermore, now that mythic rules have arrived, it would be awesome to Pathfinderize some creatures from the 3.0 Epic Level Handbook, especially the abominations.

Don't know about Wolfweres, Werejackals and Hengeyokai; but the rest of that list is WotC IP and thus a no-go, besides Half-bloods are covered by Serpentfolk and Use an evil Naga if you need an Abomination.


Well I would be happy if the only things they reprinted into a hardcover bestiary from the Innersea Bestiary would be the Android, Lashunta, Ghoran, and Syrinx.

I wouldn't mind if they did a 64 page softcover that had nothing but 0HD races' stats and every x amount of years we would get another to update with reprints and new ones. So at least after a 2-3 books we would have stats for every playable race available.


Still waiting on the dweomercat. I think that would about wrap up my wish list.

The Androids are OGL already. Pretty much every* rules content published by Paizo in any book is open content as far as names and rules go (Golarion-related lore is closed content). So, as long as the 3PP comes upon with entirely new ecology/background for them that does not infringe on Golarion-related stuff, they can go 'Droid as much as they want.

* notable exceptions include Coeurl, Deep Crow and several Lovecraftian monsters from Wake of the Watcher

I would love to see something like an elder faerie dragon or such, that is a true dragon (think chromatic, metallic, etc) version of the faerie dragon. That way we could have great wyrm Faerie Dragons that are Gargantuan or such size. Taking the faerie dragon back to its 2nd edition roots of being a true dragon with age categories. I really hate that WotC changed them into pseudodragons with 3rd edition, and Paizo continuing with that.


I do miss Faerie Dragons having age categories but I am fine with them getting no bigger then small or maybe medium size.

It is such a shame they can't reprint the Coeurl and Deep Crow.

I would like to see a Dream Wolf regardless if it is a Pathfinder version of the Moon Dog or a template for dream animals.

I would like to see a lightning, thunder, or storm drake.

Keld Piskie, is that a fey creature?

For the sake of eye-catching I've included explanations. Assuming anyone reads this wall of text.

Animated armor: We already have medusa heads and regenerating skeletons, what's one more Castlevania staple? There's axe-throwers, spearmen, and big clanky things blocking your way.

Archdevils
-Dispater: Ever since Fires of Dis way back in Planescape he's just always had a way of standing out in the lore. In 3.5 he's a paranoid shut-in, in Pathfinder he's the father of Ragathiel (and on the cover of BotD1), and an entire layer of Hell is part of his character. A must have.
-Mammon: Greed and scarcity are big deals without an archdevil masterminding them, and the fact that he's the real big bad of Council of Thieves is all the more reason to stat him.
-Moloch: He has child soldiers, from the human sacrifices burned in his name. They don't deserve to be in Hell, but they are. Cthulhu is the lesser evil compared to this cosmic horror.

Demon lords
-Haagenti: The demigod of alchemy, invention, and transformation; the only one. Allegedly the inventor of the Philosopher's Stone. There's a definite Science is Bad vibe that I'd like explained, and Haagenti would make a natural foe for a prospective good-aligned demigod(ess) of alchemy, invention, and transformation (like a PC).
-Jubilex: Or however it's spelling its name this time. Surely Paizo can do something with the slime demon besides "oozes around and not much else."
-Socothbenoth: He shows up in the lore enough that you'll have to include him sometime. If you can include half-ogres and incubi and then you can include him. If the Book of Vile Darkness is any indication the most we'll get is "meh" or "ew" -- except from crybabies who'd accuse Paizo of a "terrorist attack."

Empyreal lords
-Arshea: Wanna show your commitment to transfolk? Put the demigod(ess) of them here and damn the busybodies who complain about "inappropriate content."
-Ragathiel: He shows up in the lore often enough, has an interesting backstory (An angel who began as a tiefling?! Kewl.), and may well be someone you'll be fighting besides in a mythic setting.
-Zohls: I just intuitively like her concept as a patron demigoddess for investigators, that and her artwork makes me think of her as the go-to gal for gothic, investigation-heavy APs like Carrion Crown. Also, I wanna see an outsider with an Intelligence score on par with a Runelord.

the Four Horsemen: I know that they're big enough deals that they're being saved for some future AP but I figured I'd express interest.

Harbingers
-Cixyron: Given Paizo's success with Rasputin Must Die! I feel that a tech-orientated harbinger' -- or even a techy outsider, period -- would be well-received.
-Corosbel: On suicide cults, BotD3 says "That their corpses bear smiles on their faces is all the more horrifying." You might as well shout "Heaven's Gate was a daemonic cult!" Intriguing to say the least.
-Pavnuri: Already given some lore, and I just like the way he made a niche for himself. Cacodaemons are such useful little things, and potentially horrific given their ability to damn innocents into the lower planes.

Infernal dukes
-Vapula: Though likely more academic than technical, I'd like to see the diabolical counterpart to Haagenti.
-Zaebos: The demigod of decadent nobility who genuinely see nothing wrong with hurting "lesser classes." More lore-relevant, explicitly worshipped by the vampires of Caiphas (Pathfinder #47, p.28).
-Zephar: Another nightmare for marketing and PR, but they don't get paid to take it easy. Mostly, I'm curious as to how the three areas of concern (rape, abduction, and transformation) go together (outside of porn). Wes said Silence of the Lambs explains it better but all I got was "Buffalo BIll likes woman suits."

Japanese mythology: I will outright admit that I got these ideas from Touhou. Since people may not know what I'm talking about with these examples my notes are more explanatory than argumentative.
-Hakutaku/Bai Ze/Kutabe: Sorta like a kirin, except bovine. Possibly the only ungulate My Little Pony hasn't noticed (yet).
-J izou Statue: Guardians of children and banes of swear filters.
-Menreiki: The spirit of a set of masks. Is it an outsider or a construct?
-Satori: May simply be vanara who're psychic mages in Pathfinder but they're worth a mention.
-Shikeisen: A template for a kind of immortal; the prospective shikeisen performs a body swap with an object except the object becomes a new body and vice-versa. A sabotaged object will result in a ghost.
-Tsuchinoko: I know we can simply reskin a skink to get one but they deserve a place in the lore.
-Tsukumogami: A long-used tool becoming a monster. Paizo'll most likely opt for specific instances (e.g., pipe fox) rather than a generalized template (e.g., animated object) but I feel it's worth suggesting.
-Yama: I know Pathfinder already has judges of the dead but I wanna see how Paizo'll work this into the lore.
-Yamabiko: An echo dog, because we need more monsters with resistance to sonic.
-Yatagaratsu/Jinwu/Samjok-o: A three-legged crow/raven with the power of the sun. Touhou takes to nuclear levels, just the sort of f***ing metal think Paizo would indulge in.

Malbranche
-Alichino: If the cult in Ustilav is any indication then Alichino's the one taking an interest in Golarion. Also, James is a horror fan who's afraid of clowns.
-Malacoda: The favorite of Korvosa's Queen Domina, and because we need another reason to stay away from that city. (Get in line behind Ileosa, House Arkona, Lorthact, and Sorshen… Hey, you think Korvosa's the city Patch was talking about?)
-Rubicante: The one who most resembles his FFIV incarnation with his areas of concern (fire and honor), starting him will make the fans squee if nothing else.

Phasm: I have a soft spot for shapeshifters, though fitting them into the lore will be admittedly tricky.

Robots: Nothing quite says "You're not in generic fantasyland anymore" quite like having to fight robots with swords. Don't complain, we've had robots in RPGs since Final Fantasy 1 and their appearances tend to herald things coming to a head. Besides, can you think of construct types besides golems, clockworks, and animated objects?

Silithilar: Good-aligned aberrations with a fondness for body modification, created by James Jacobs himself. WotC's not using them, I'm sure at worst they won't cost that much to use.

Whore Queens: all of them, since there's only four. They'll probably get stuck in an AP since Ardad Lili's got Plans, and the word "whore" scares the marketing department (I won't forget "dance halls"), but I feel like asking will have some positive effect.


I would love a clockwork template. This would get much use from me.


yeah...doesn't matter. WOTC owns Silithilar and Paizo can't touch them.

A positive energy creature that forms a symbiotic relationship with a living corporeal creature. It grants some immunities(death effects, energy drain, harmful positive energy planar effects, etc.), fast healing, and the effects of the regenerate spell when they first bond and 1/day after words. It would be an energy creatures and reside inside it's host, more then likely it would incorporeal.

A tiny size dragon that looks like the imperial dragons, grants luck related powers, can be a familiar with the improved familiar feat.


Hopefully the Azi will make it into the next bestiary. Along with some more linnorms, and I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for some Katsinas. :)

Well for one thing, as a lover of prehistoric beasts I would love to see some more of those. Maybe a Gorgonops?

I would like to see some creatures of Aboriginal legends in there as well.

Also, I feel like some more animal familiars would be nice. Maybe a chameleon, a dragonfly, or a wallaby? As well as more animal companions-I would love to have a tapir companion!

Also, some templates for animals would be cool. I mean, like I would definitely use a cyborg bear or a mutated dire rat in my campaign!

Yowies would make a good swamp/creek variation of the Sasquatch and Yeti.

Or the Yara-ma-yha-who. This slippery little sucker, makes you shorter every time it eats you!

I might be hated to no end for this but...
+ 5 new chromatic dragons (gray, brown, purple, orange and yellow)
+ 5 new metallic dragons (adamantine, mithral, orium, steel and iron)

Perhaps this then (?):

Dragon [Chromatic], Brown (Fire-breathing desert dwelling dragons who often come into conflict with brass, copper, blue, and yellow dragons)

Dragon [Chromatic], Gray (Also known as fang dragons, these electricity-breathing chromatics are just as feral as the whites but no less dangerous)

Dragon [Chromatic], Orange (These jungle-dwelling acid-breathing chromatics are just as spiteful and unsociable as the blacks)

Dragon [Chromatic], Purple (Dwelling almost exclusively in the darklands, these cold-breathing chromatics desire power and control above all else)

Dragon [Chromatic], Yellow (Acid-breathing dragons dwelling in craggy wastelands, they hate copper dragons and are nortorious liars and deceivers)

Dragon [Metallic], Cobalt (These ice-breathing metallics dwell in the frozen north and often take entire communities under their wing in order to make them strong)

Dragon [Metallic], Iron (These electricity-breathing metallics fashion themselves the ultimate hunters of evil and love nothing more than to stalk a fiend for days then slay it)

Dragon [Metallic], Mercury (These fire-breathing metallics value knowledge above all else and desire to folster learning and the spread to lore throughout the world)

Dragon [Metallic], Orium (These acid-breathing metallics often dwell in ancient ruins and seek to protect the future by preserving the past; preventing intruders from plundering and debasing their forgotten homes)

Dragon [Metallic], Steel (Often refered to as song dragons, these acid-breathing metallics love to dwell in humanoid-communities and have a fondness for humanoid food)

Just some ideas for ya but don't get me wrong, 10 chromatics and 10 metallics are enough for me.

That could work too ^_^

Outrageous!

I have a collosal wish list. Lets start with the native american creatures, since there aren't that many of those in PF.

The thing is the Pink Dragon was actually created as an April's Fool joke by WotC for their Dragon Magazine.

Another thing I want to see in the Bestiary 5 is a creature that is similar to the cryptid the devil monkey-a baboon like creature with unbelievable acrobatic abilities, immense strength, and a vicious thirst to kill. If there was a similar creature in Pathfinder (most likely a magical beast, but it could also be a humanoid or an animal) I would use it.

Also, winged lions and winged wolves would be cool to see.

There are creatures from mythology which everybody knows.

Sometimes they are paradoxically well-known for their obscurity. Tsuchinoko, anyone?

Some other times the monsters aren't remembered very often. I am always happy when I see a hekatonkheir in a work.

And then there are things that nobody knows. So, without further ado...

Lox. He's an evil trickster from Abenaki Native American folklore, who looks like a hybrid of wolverine, badger and beaver, and can take the form of any one of these. He was created by the evil twin of Glooscap, the Abenaki creator-god. He's also a sufferer of chronic backstabbing disorder (he betrayed his creator very quickly when he wasn't rewarded for something), and desires pigeon wings to fly.

Have any of you ever heard of Lox? No? Didn't think so!
