Pathfinder’s New Bestiary Is Big, Bad, And Bountiful

2 Minute Read
Sep 11 2020

When Paizo adds more monsters to a game, they go big–as we see in this preview of a beastly new Bestiary, with 300 new monsters waiting to go.

Pathfinder is many things, but streamlined and ultralite it is not. Whether we’re talking about their 600+ core rulebook, their plethora of splatbooks, each of which could anchor a tent on its own, or the sheer number of customization options they offer, Pathfinder is crammed to the gills. Every book falls somewhere on the chonk-chungus spectrum, and the latest preview from Paizo is no exception. The Bestiary 3 adds 300 monsters to the game over the span of 320 pages.

But it’s more than just monsters in this manual, you’ll also find a much needed monster index, as well as updates and clarifications to Pathfinder’s core rules as they pertain to monsters specifically. If you have been struggling as a GM, this book has some much needed relief. Take a look. The book isn’t due out until March of 2021, so you’ve got time–and monsters–to kill.
