There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Im not going to say again all the great things that have already been said in the novel of reviews this product already has.
I will say that unlike a lot of the reviews my pen and paper started with the last days of 3.o dungeons and dragons and most of it has been with 3.5 dungeons and dragons. Also I will add my group has tried such great systems as Savage Worlds and Shadowrun and while they were nice as far as I am concerned for one reason or another all but good old standard d20 3.5 fell aside.
From my perspective Pathfinder has well continued the 3.5 system and expanded it to the point all my players and myself have been very happy using the system and will all agree its the best we have used.
I would like to add that class archtypes are the best highlight for me as to what they have done to give that extra customisation each of us was looking for.
I agree with what an earlier reviewer said about not screaming back and forth about 4.o vs Pathfinder. For my group it was my group tried it and didnt like 4.o so pathfinder it was =P.
I would recomend this product to anyone who came up with any version of d20 rules, hopefuly we will see a revision of d20 Modern soon **hint to Paizo**
That's where this book has provided an unbelievable source of inspiration.
Paizo has provided hundreds of NPCs, arranging them by main class, but making use of almost all available class variants to date. This means that even when you have several pages of warriors, you really have a great array of different choices. You get NPCs of almost any level and even if you have to provide a NPC on the fly for a session, you can certainly find many different characters you can use of almost any level.
The book is usual Pathfinder quality. Almost all NPCs have their own character drawn with very good art. Covers are paper used for the book are of great quality like all other books from Paizo.
This is a great tool, one most GMs will certainly benefit from. And for players, it can provide plenty of ideas for different types of characters.
My only other complaint with this book is that they continue to have this habit of creating 'groups' of monsters. The Devils and Daemons were enough, but apparently now there are Asura, Div, Kytons, Oni, Kami all of which boil down to "More inherently evil things" (with the exception of the Kami) and most of which don't even have a consistent theme, look, or abilities. Speaking of which, why aren't all oozes called "Ooze, (Name)" and grouped like that?
There are some people that call this the asian bestiary, and they're 2/5ths right. There are a large number of asian inspired monsters, but there are just as many if not more other monsters. There are some old favorites, my particular penchant being for the Normal Animal A + Normal Animal B = Ridiculous Monster C (ie Owlbear).
In summary the Bestiaries and their exotic monsters are my favorite part of being a DM. I wait only for the return of "Hamster, Giant Space".
