I don’t know about you, but when it comes to my sessions of Pathfinder, there just aren’t enough variations of cultists for me to throw at my opponents. Right now we have 5 Bestiary books for Pathfinder, but what I feel the game is missing is a group of entirely insane satanic cultists that are backed by archdevils. I want a big, bad battle of holy versus evil and I feel like the current lineup is lacking. Lucky for us Pathfinder fans Paizo just announced the Bestiary 6, which will bring all I’m asking for and more to the game in March of 2017.
For those adventurers that want to hike their game up a notch, the Bestiary 6 will introduce world-ending monstrosities that can level cities if left unhindered. Between the covers of this book, players will find hundreds of monsters against which to test their might: 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. Not all creatures exist to be adversaries of legendary heroes, however. Players will also gaze upon empyreal lords, dragons from Heaven, and the mythical Green Man, which all stand to aid heroes in their time of need.
Here’s a breakdown of what to expect from Bestiary 6:
- 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, and the 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 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.
This new supplement will release in March of 2017, so you’ve the rest of the year to try and get all your other beasties to the battleground before the book hits shelves. Have you dropped the dreaded Grim Reaper yet? What sort of devious foe are you looking to unleash into your campaigns?
