Bestiary 4 is Coming!!!!

Post by dfryer36 » Tue May 07, 2013 2:40 am

Bestiary 4 is going to be the first to support mythic level play. It is going to include kaiju and Great Old Ones, including a stat block for Cthulhu himself. I am quite happy.

Cool! I like that Pathfinder is going there. I highly doubt we would ever see modern-day D&D stats for Cthulhu.

That being said, if he has stats, he can be killed. ;)

Well, there was D20 Call of Cthulhu that came pretty close.

That is not dead which can eternal lie. :twisted:

James Jacobs has said that it will be slightly harder to kill Cthulhu than the Tarrasque, fwiw.

I'm looking forward to seeing what they come up with for B4. B3 was my favorite bestiary so far. I'm especially looking forward to what they have termed "Outer Dragons" and have said are unlike any kind of dragon we've seen before. Since there have been planar dragons elsewhere, I'm guessing Outer doesn't refer to Outer Planes.

Instead, I'm leaning towards Outer being somewhat akin to Outer Gods, as in Lovecraftian Outer Gods. Which would make for some truly amazing dragons.

And I'm reminded of Draedens as well.

I saw that on their Facebook page. Wonder if it's just going to be higher level monsters or a mixture?

On the Paizo homepage they have said it is going to be the standard mix of low and high level monsters. Even the infamous Al-Miraj (aka Blink Bunny) is making a return.

With d20 systems...if you stat it, they'll make a -half template for it and then try to run it as a PC.
