Bestiary 6

Book of Monsters

pages

Published by Paizo

Bestiary 6 is full of new monsters and potential player races.  Many of which are inspired by myth, lore Lovecraft and more! It’s a large collection of monsters that might make you wonder what they’re thinking.  I mean it’s their sixth book of monsters, seventh if you count the Monster Codex. As you might expect the book is well organized and it is just full of new art, plus it also includes appendixes and updated universal monster rules.

Bestiary 6 contains all kinds of goodies

Blight

Horsemen of the Apocalypse

Devils/demons/daemons

clockworks

dragons

empyreal

Kaiju

Player Races 5

Entothropes

New familiars

 

Specific Monsters that stand out to me

Alter Ego

Animous Shade

elder Wyrm

fallen

troop

When I first found out about Bestiary 6 I was like really?  Can they pull it off? Well, I think they did just that! While many of the monsters in this book are CR heavy there are still a lot of lower level gems in this book. As a GM I will be happy using the information here to design my own corner or alternate reality of Golaria.  As a player I am extremely worried about what my GM will be plotting to do to me.

Welcome back to another Figure Forge!  In this episode I finish off the Gortisi by assembling some Skirmishers from the two player Starter set for Wrath of Kings from CMoN.

I have had a few people ask If I have assembled the Dance master yet.  No, I haven’t I will try to pick it one up soon.  CMoN is currently sold out – Maybe I will find the kit at Origins Game Fair.

Watch as Matt assembles the Slorza Alpha for Kings of War. This model is part of the two player starter kit from CMoN

What can I say about Wrath of Kings? Well, those of you that know me know I like d10 games.   I have only played twice now so I am not ready to give it a review just yet, but the mechanics are easy to pickup.  You can buy the starter and be playing in under an hour
