Pathfinder Bestiary Preview II
Now that the Pathfinder RPG Bestiary Preview II has been released, does anybody have any thoughts about it?

Well I am impressed they knocked it up in about 24 hours!
I am so liking the art, and the Bone Devil looks top, a fave of mine.
Still not diggin the little images next too the names: idea good, but complex images mean they are not easy to tell at a glance.Gloria Finis

I'm really liking the artwork and the stat blocks seem much improved with PF.
I have to agree on the icons...nice idea but not real useful. Too many and too small to be much good for reference.

Yay for new info on the universal monster abilities, like Whirlwind, Stench, Telepathy, and Change Shape! Yay for more subtype info! Yay for the stirge artwork!
I'm intrigued by the "advanced monster template" mentioned on pg. 14. (Ghasts are described as "ghouls with the advanced monster template.") Advancing monsters in 3.5 wasn't too terrible, but it could get cumbersome with intelligent or spellcasting monsters. I can see where a template could make this a lot easier. Alas, no such template is provided in this preview.
I get the feeling that the monsters of Pathfinder have changed quite a bit from the 3.5 Edition. Universal monster abilities, templates for advancement, linking BAT to HD...I think the Bestiary might be full of surprises.

On the other hand, maybe this is just one more way that they have simplified the rules. Not necessarily a bad thing, I guess.- CleverSignature
