Anyone know of a creature or construct that works as a hive mind?


Pathfinder First Edition General Discussion


I need to find rules for a true hive mind in pathfinder. It can be a monster or preferably a construct or template that has some kind of collective consciousness rules. Thing is it needs to be for medium creatures not vermin.

I know there was a campaign book or module that had you perusing the sword of lust and there was a ninite swarm that had a good set of rules for it but my GM never told me the name.


pretty sure the creatures literally called hive function that way, they have a bunch of warrior/drones and the queen has them do stuff


There's a spell which conjures a swarm of wolves, release the hounds.

Besides that? The bonded mind teamwork feat certainly isn't a 'true hive mind' but it may be a start. Formians are described as having a hive mind though without much in the way of mechanics concerning that.

There is hivemind swarm template

It's third party, but this is the hivemind template that CorvusMask mentioned.

Hivemind Template.


Worm that Walks is a hive mind. I believe there's also a template for PC races to become one, sorta like a lich transformation.

Hmm? No thats not the template I mentioned, I mentioned paizo released template from bestiary 6. Its not "hivemind template" its "hivemind swarm template".


There is some kind of undead spider husk that is really a hive of mini-spiders... I can't recall the name atm though.

My bad. That was the only one on the SRD I saw.


Here are some results to browse through — any of those fit the bill?

The module is called Seven Swords of Sin. The nanites were probably a Granule Construct Swarm.

Formians have a hive mind, see Bestiary 4.

Horror Adventures also introduced creatures with a Hive Mind which were Aberrations.
