Pathfinder: Bestiary 5

If there is one thing you can't accuse Paizo of, it is not providing you with enough material to expand your game with. From the numerous Adventure Path modules, to the various Advanced Guides and Ultimate books, to the assortment of Campaign Setting supplements, they've spent the last several years working to make sure as many options as possible are covered.

One key element of this for me, as a GM who is trying to relearn the ropes, is the series of Bestiary books that have been released. While I'm unlikely to get to a point where I'm writing scenarios where my group are having to fight Dagon or C'thulu1, there have been a whole host of creatures - and potential character races - introduced in each book that I am likely to make use of.

In November, the latest Bestiary volume was released. I picked a copy up from my local game shop as it was released, and have been reading through it since...

And it begins again...

Morning all - just wanted to put up a quick post wishing everyone a belated Happy New Year, and to take a quick look at my plans for 2016.

I'll be continuing to post elements of the two main article series I've worked on in 2015 - Dysartes vs. the Warlock, and Finding a Path - as well as introducing some new material, including:

  • Taking a look at games designed with a single-player mode, starting with Space Hulk: Death Angel, by Fantasy Flight Games
  • Chancing my arm at RPG book reviews, starting with Bestiary 5 for Pathfinder
  • Sharing my painting process for models outside my usual comfort zone
  • And more as ideas spring to mind.
Hopefully I'll see some of you around as I post during this year.
