"Big Bird" was the name assigned to a mothman-esque cryptid. Because apparently giving monsters cool names is silly or something.


A "muppet" template would be interesting.

Also an "imaginary friend" type creature would interesting as well.

Tulpa are imaginary friends, and muppets would be ... uh.... different.


Tulpa are not even close for one they are not friends and two they are not very imaginative or interesting in there appearance.

There a few ways they could have an imaginary friend.

1)It was created by a person(more then likely a child) and can only be seen by that child or children in general.

2)Is a creature that pretends to be a imaginary friend and is evil but that could fit a lot of different monsters that exist like various fey, outsiders, or incorporeal undead.

3)It could be a type of spirit that protects children and can only be seen by it's chosen child.

4)It could be a good(or at least non-dangerous) version of a "Tulpa" like from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends.

They can easily be friends, and if you want them to be "random" in appearance then you just follow what the tulpa template says and put it on an unfettered eidolon to get the body shape you want.

What makes you think that tulpa are evil or dangerous?


Pathfinder Lost Omens, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I had a pretty cool idea, the disembodied psyche of somebody who's in a coma. It might be an outsider because of some energy from ether the Ethereal Plane or the Dimension of Dreams. Beyond that I've got no idea.


That reminds me of movies and TV shows that ended up being all a dream:)

Top 20 Monsters from Mythology I'm legitimately surprised haven't appeared.

1.Nekomata
2.Blemmyes
3.Empusa
4.Piasa
5.Sirrush
6.Gulon
7.Taniwha
8.Mapinguari
9.Pishtacos
10.Yara-Ma-Yha-Who
11.Telchines
12.Gowrow
13.Carcolh
14.Cipactli
15.Loup-Garou
16.Ushi Oni
17.Rawhead
18.Kamaitachi
19.Hidebehind
20.Krampus

These are all monsters that are fairly well known while still being unique. I did not include monsters like Fenrir or Typhon which would have to be unique, mythic level entities, as we receive those very rarely and haven't had mythic rules for all that long. I also excluded creatures like the Ogopogo, Yowie, Owlman, etc. which while not outside the realm of possibility, would require some serious thought to use in a way that was distinct from existing monsters.


Top 1 Monsters from Mythology I'm legitimately surprised haven't appeared.

1: Mahaha.

:-p

Btw, I agree with most of them, spare for Gowrow, which I do like, but i'm not suprised it hasn't appeared yet.

I'm also surprised the Amhuluk hasn't appeared yet, that thing is just SO cool and so much cool stuff can be done with it.

The Anaye and Sianach are also monsters i'm surprised haven't appeared yet.


I thought the Gowrow was a pretty well-known cryptid, more so probably than the Snallygaster, probably on the same level as the Hodag. I could be wrong though.

The Mahaha is pretty obscure, though several obscure Inuit creatures are in the game already. It's certainly a possibility, though I'm not surprised it hasn't happened yet. I don't think I've ever seen one in actual fiction before, though the same could be said for the game's other Inuit creatures with the exception of the Amarok.

The Anaye are definitely among the most well-known North American mythical creatures, though their nature as an Outsider group makes their inclusion iffy. A lot of people are complaining about the number of evil Outsiders. I'm not sure whether those complaints have in any way affected the developers' decision-making process.

The Sianach is a Celtic creature, though a relatively obscure one.

I'm not expecting the Amhuluk anytime soon. There's a lot of mutation-based monsters in the game at this point already, and I'm not sure that you've been helping its case by insisting that it's so similar to the Aboleth. (I, for the record, do not think that it's all that similar.) I do want it to appear, though. I'd probably interpret them as horribly corrupted forms of Horned Serpent (Which in my ideal circumstance, would be the obligatory five dragons when and if we ever start covering Arcadia.) And yes, they'd still have the ability to mutate other creatures, which would probably involve applying the mutant template from B5.


Well, the only thing the Amhuluk and Aboleth have in common is their way of changing creatures into mutants. Though the Amhuluk is much cooler.

It wouldn't hurt for other upcoming-famous creatures such as Shadhavar and Batibat (both pretty popular by artists) to shine in Bestiary 6.

There is a lot of art for Mahaha, more so than even the Gowrow, so it maybe not in games yet, but it is in many artworks, sharale could be an alternative for Mahaha, as it looks pretty much the same and behaves the same but is not frost-based.

Mahaha would make a perfect frost based daemon or demon.

I only care for 4 Anaye, and one of them is kinda destroyed by pathfinder (Delgeth), as the Delgeth from pathfinder should have been the Sianach, the Delgeth must be more like a horrible deformed moose or pronghorn. Binaye-Ahani, Yeitso and Tsenahale are still uncovered, so maybe the Delgeth can be replaced with its alternative name the Thelgeth.


BTW, what background-story/appearance do you use for the Gowrow, I can't find a cool story/role for this monster... Knucker (hiding in holes), Whowie (monitor lizard) and Dingonek (tusks) all take his features and make them cooler. So maybe you can inspire me to use it better.

But then again, I also never use the Hodag for similar reasons, Gulon, Bruckee and all creatures with horns/spikes being too similar, so the Hodag doesn't have something unique about him, he was a long time my early-in-game-forest encounter until the Demon Badger Bruckee took its place.


Ushi oni, come to think of it, I do not remember the last time we even had any new oni or even reprints in a hardcover bestiary.


Given how obscure and poorly known most Native American Mythology is, only Piasa is an actual surprise for me. I mean those are well known to some degree but only to people who are really into mythology and folklore, at which point they probably also have a much wider variety of inspirations to pick from.

Still I would love to see the South American fat-sucking vampires show up. They have at least appeared on Supernatural, and they do have alternative names that are less likely to be confused with popular Baja Mexico food items :)

I think they have deliberately avoided the Gulon as its somewhat considered a bathroom joke creature along the lines of the Bonnacon.

Technically Typhon already exists in Pathfinder, but as a dead (?) Archdevil, whose position Barbatos took over in Hell.


He is also called Typho, Typhaon, Typheous, or Typhos. He was the most feared monster in Greek myth so I would think he was CR30.


The real Gulon is just a greedy Dire WOlverine anyway.

I want my own version of the Gulon, that looks like this horrible creature and which are known planet-eaters, dropped off by an alien race to strip all life and plants from a planet.

Or maybe this version of the gulon, which appears like the Bandersnatch of the movies, I like that appearance of the Gulon.

As I said before the real myth gulon is boring, but the idea is cool.

The poop-thing can be helped by giving the creatures magical stomach acid or by giving them a pocked plane inside their bodies.


So this is a temporal Gulon. Good to know.

Well they don't eat everything like the langoliers, but yes some of my inspiration came from them.


I also really want to put on Mambabarang, the insect hags that use insects of all types in their spells/curses/voodoo rituals. They can summon insects of all types, that is a cool hag.

Of course the real myth isn't that cool, but don't worry, Myth King is here to save the day haha.
In the real myth the Mambabarang is just a human witch, well don't want that in pathfinder, turn her into a hag which hut is surrounded by all types of bizarre giant vermin and voila, awesome creature.

I like the version of the Gulon that looks like a fat bear wolf crossbreed like the movie Bandersnatch.


You can add a prefix to any modified monster. Fiendish Gulon, Alien Gulon, Chaotic Wonderland Gulon, ect. You can still amp up the standard Gulon, but you don't have to limit Pathfinder to one.

I just said that...


The Bandersnatch-esque Gulon is how it should look. The planet-eating space maw is so far removed from the actual lore that it has no resemblance at all to an actual Gulon. That should be an original monster. I see no reason why it couldn't be. If it has to have a mythical name, and there's no reason why it would, maybe Rahu might work. Rahu. Rahu in mythology is unique and godlike, but if his distant cousin Kabandha could be made into a normal creature, I don't see why he couldn't. Rahu was an Asura who's severed head flew around space and ate the sun, so a planet-devouring maw monster might work. And devouring planets fits pretty well with Pathfinder's take on Asuras... You know, I'm liking this idea. Make it Rahu.


Well in Mythika are 4 types of Gulon. The original from earth which is a dire wolverine, the abyssal maw which is a demonic gulon or oni-possessed one, the bandersnatch is a chaos corrupted gulon and pet to hundun the lord of chaos, it looks like the movie bandersnatch, and the Grey aliens created the devourers out of gulon experiments, they are like that picture more maw than beast and with extreme gluttonous hunger they are released on minor planets to eat away all life and eventually even the planet itself, this takes ages though.

I wouldn't mind seeing versions of all 3, spare for the original gulon, which is already in through Dire Wolverine.


Well the planet eating maw monster would make a interesting creature from outer space or another dimension like the maelstrom.


I dont'really care how Gulon gets into Pathfinder, i'm happy with any form, just cut the poop stuff, Gulon's are more than poop jokes.

Anyway, I really hope this list gets over 70% complete after Bestiary 6, and I hope many of the monsters that are already in get cool sub-species, and also many could end up in AP-bestiaries.

I don't know of their mythological equivalent, but:

Seasonal Wyrd: A fey creature that's attitudes, form, and abilities differ from season to season. Each Season is aware of the others, and spends it's time trying to "set right" the efforts of the others.

A positive energy beastie that hunts undead. Bonus points if its so ruthless in it's hunting style that it poses a threat to other creatures that it sees as "standing in the way," such as if a city has a noble that's secretly a vampire, or if librarians are unaware of the shadows that have taken up residence in their underground store rooms.

Half-Construct Fey race, such as what might occur if several generations of fey lived in close proximity to a source of nanites or heavily magically-industrialized ruins.


Clock/gear based fey that represent the element of time.

I would love more season based creatures especially ones whose abilities and appearance change with the seasons.

I am all for more positive energy based creatures both harmless and deadly.

Thanks for that idea, it will serve my Sin-You right! Cool way to make a seemingly good-guy be also dangerous.


It's been said before, but...

Azis and Gigases.

Also, Ammut and the Serpopard need to be reprinted in a Bestiary.


I would like to see monsters (possibly Divs) based on the five sons of Iblis.

Dasim, Lord of Discord: A monstrous baboon demon.
Awar, Lord of Lubricity: A humanoid peacock monster.
Sut, Lord of Lies: A humanoid stork creature vaguely remniscent of Thoth or Shax.
Tir, Lord of Fatal Accidents: A humanoid boar/fish hybrid monster.
Zalambur, Lord of Mercantile Dishonesty: A feather-winged Hydra beast.

Mouths of Rahu. Even more fun if there are seven of them(because of the legend). When someone goes back in time to change history, These things show up and start eating the dying timeline. Maybe the characters fight the things (ghost touch weapons only, they risk being swallowed whole). Maybe they race for a portal out, anywhere!


Awar, Lord of Lubricity: A humanoid peacock monster.

A lord of Lubricity that looks like a peacock? Someone explain this to me... Gliding liquid? Why would anyone be lord of that?

Peacock = vanity, beauty, arrogance, proudness it should be the lord of any of those things, not of liquid that help you glide better lol.

I wasn't familiar with the word either, but presumably it's referring to metaphorical smoothness, i.e. manipulative charisma. There's actually a long history of Abrahamic peacock demons.

Thanks, that makes the monster a lot more awesome instantly.

this would be a cool begin for the monster


Makes me wish they had stats for whoever/whatever the Peacock Spirit was/is.

If you meant my picture of the peacock-man it is this mythological being:

Melek Taus (Kurdish: Tawusê Melek), translated in English as Peacock Angel is the Yazidi name for one of the central figures of Yazidi religion. In Yazidi creation stories, God created the world and entrusted it to the care of a Heptad of seven Holy Beings, often known as Angels or heft sirr (the Seven Mysteries). Preeminent among them is Tawûsê Melek (frequently known as "Melek Taus" in English publications), the Peacock Angel.Picture: Antoine Helbert

Bizarre Yokai for everyone, Yokai for everyone!


So many Japanese based monsters we still do not have stats for:( But the same thing can be said about many mythologies;)

Sovereign Court

Aliens mentioned in Distant Worlds:

Sharpwings - Aballon
Diggers - Aballon
Sky-Fishers - Castrovel
Hoarbats - Verces
Bloodbrothers - Verces
Abaki - Verces
Sarcesian - Diaspora
Ellicoth - Eox
Dashilen - Triaxus
Urog - Bretheda
Orbigati-dahu - Bretheda
Kalo - Bretheda
Ilee - Apostae

Even if it's just a quick "palette swap this existing creature" appendix for most of these!

The Maelephant as a 'Gajasura' Asura.

More abyssal wildlife:

Chatterer Swarm
Varrangoin (I think the 3.0 Fiend Folio is open content? Maybe I'm wrong)

The Oitos Kyton, finally, please?

Liberty's Edge

The Sarcesians and Ilee definitely deserve stats. Though, the latter are going to be pretty f@@#ing hard to come up with :0

The glowing poet-whales and serpentine sky-priests of Triaxus would be pretty neat additions to the bestiaries as well.


With Starfinder we might even get a full bestiary of creatures from various planets. Though I am still worried about what will be changed mechanically.

"Lubricity" here probably means leacherous, salacious.

Instead of Colossal+ they should consider actual size categories. Colossal, Humongous, Mountainous, Astronomical, Cosmic, Galactic, Inter Galactic, Planar, and Universal. A vision of the universe will destroy your sanity because there is no outside to look at it from.

A turtle island is going to be stronger, heavier, and have more hit points than the Terrask. It may be unable to crawl onto land.


What ever happend with the Mythology/folklore/cryptid monsters in the Adventure Path bestiaries?

I see no mythology monsters for a long time (Tenome being the last I liked) and Science Fiction beasts seem to overpower the myth/folk/cryp department...

I thought this wouldn't happen as some people at Paizo promised every AP had its own share of myth monsters... With the upcoming SF AD there is no hope for mythology as well, and with Giant Slayer having NO cool mythology monsters (while it was the perfect oppertunity to do a lot of cool myth giants) I think the myth-monsters die out in the AP paths...


The easiest explanation is that they're running low on mythical creatures appropriate to the regions of Golarion that the recent paths have taken place in. At this point a majority of the best unused mythical creatures are non-European. This makes it difficult to fit them into an AP that takes place in a region based on Europe. Those European creatures that are left are either recent discoveries, such as the ones on A Book of Creatures, and thus probably too new to have been around when the APs were planned out, native to specific areas of Europe that are not being focused on, but might be eventually, such as Scandinavian creatures being better used when and if we get an AP set in the Land of the Linnorm Kings, or just not quite as interesting as the original monsters, which isn't to say that they're bad or have no potential, just that the original monsters are better. You'll notice that the hardcover bestiaries still feature a ton of mythical creatures since they're not limited by having to be appropriate for a specific region.

I have a nasty feeling Bestiary 6 will be for Starfinder, and so it will feature no Mythology monsters at all.

James J and many of the writhers love SF more than fantasy I guess, and that is probably the biggest reason.

Like I said, Giant Slayer was the perfect oppertunity to add Mythological giants, though none were used. Same in the Demonic AP, the Robot AP and the Hell-Ap's.

I long for the days of the past where random monsters were put in the AP's instead of only fitting ones.
