  • Here's Wayne Reynolds' Cover of Paizo's BESTIARY 6!


    Paizo today revealed the cover of it's latest Bestiary, the sixth of that name! The cover art is by Wayne Reynolds. The book itself is due out next month (April) and contains 200 new monsters, new player races, foes from myth and legend (including Krampus!) and a whole bunch more. You can preorder it over at the Paizo webstore.






    Satanic Panic! Truly legendary heroes require truly legendary foes, and now these world-ending menaces have arrived! Within this book, you'll find hundreds of monsters for use in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Test your mettle against Archdevils and the Horsemen of the Apocalypse, two-headed dragons and the Wild Hunt, conqueror worms or living statues haunted by dead gods, troops of goblins or strangely sentient oozes, and myriad other menaces suitable for all levels of play! Yet not every legend needs to tell of foes, and within these pages you’ll also find that new empyreal lords, dragons from Heaven, and the mythical Green Man all stand ready to aid you on your quests—if you prove yourself worthy.

    Pathfinder RPG Bestiary 6 is the latest indispensable volume of monsters for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and serves as a companion to the Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook and Pathfinder RPG Bestiary. This imaginative tabletop game builds upon more than 10 years of system development and an Open Playtest featuring more than 50,000 gamers to create a cutting-edge RPG experience that brings the all-time best-selling set of fantasy rules into a new era.

    Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Bestiary 6 includes:

    • More than 200 different monsters.
    • Strange new player-character-suitable races like the canine rougarou, the watery fey naiad, the crazed monkey goblin, and the Lovecraftian yaddithian, Darklands-dwelling munavri.
    • Powerful foes from myth and legend, such as the Archdevil Mephistopheles, Charon of the River Styx, and that notorious haunter of holidays known as Krampus!
    • New animal companions, constructs waiting creation by skilled spellcasters, and a new category of true dragon from the Outer Planes.
    • New templates to help you get more life out of classic monsters, including the shape-changing vermin-themed entothrope and the intelligent hivemind swarm.
    • Appendices to help you find the right monster, including lists by Challenge Rating, monster type, and habitat.
    • Expanded universal monster rules to simplify combat.
    • Challenges for every adventure and every level of play.
    • AND MUCH, MUCH MORE!

      Awesome. Love this..One of his better covers.

      6 (hardcover, anyway) monster manuals , referencing a 10 year old playtest and " more than 10 years of system development". This system is getting extremely long in the tooth. I sure hope SF goes for a lighter system instead of feeling beholden to this behemoth, like TSR did with their AD&D editions.

      They have said that their number one goal for Starfinder is that the rules suit the tone of the game and the setting, with Pathfinder compatibility being a secondary but important consideration. If you ask me I don't think the Paizo game designers actually like to be locked down to Pathfinder rules, some have even said in the past that they would like to throw out entire parts of the rule set and replace them but they know they can't without alienating a lot of diehards who seem to be the core of their customers today. Starfinder might be a way around this, grow the base of Paizo a bit and maybe they will will be in a more stable position to kill a few sacred cows in Pathfinder.

      We'll see. if there are prestige classes, they failed to break free of 3.75.
