An excellent addition to the system! 26 Nov. 2013
By Matthew Scott Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I think I’ve made it very clear that I am a huge geek and have been for many, many years. If you are unsure of this claim, just glance back at some of my posts from earlier this year where I discuss collecting comics and whatnot. So I’m sure that it will come as no surprise to anyone when I confess that I love roleplaying games. From Dungeons & Dragons to R.I.F.T.S. to DragonLance, I love just about all things fantasy related. A couple of years ago, I stumbled upon the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, and now I have a new obsession. Pathfinder is an amazing gaming system that both old and new role-players will love.

If you are a visual person for the most part, like me, then you’ll love this new bestiary. The book is crammed full of creatures and monsters alike, complete with stats, origin histories and color pictures. The detailed graphics of each entry are an excellent companion to help describe who or what is attacking your party.

My favorite aspect of this bestiary is the inclusion of the Great Old Ones, which are none other than deities that exist in the worlds of H.P. Lovecraft. As a HUGE Lovecraft fan, this was an amazing surprise, and I am whole-heartedly inserting some of these beasties into my own campaigns. Of particular note is the great Cthulhu himself! It just doesn’t get much better.

The PATHFINDER ROLEPLAYING GAME: BESTIARY 4 is a huge win for me and it’s a definite must-own if you enjoy RPGs. But whether you play or not, you should certainly pick this one up anyway, if just to see the detailed artwork. The book is available now.

Paizo Brings It Again 9 Feb. 2014
By Steven - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Some people might say, "Why keeping adding creatures?", "Why do I need Cthulhu?", or even, "What's a Grendel?" Well, Bestiary 4 answers all these questions with a loud and boisterous, "Because." Seriously though, this has been my favorite Bestiary so far. There are new characters all the way from level 1 to 30 (yes, Cthulhu is a CR30) and it also offers new and unique races to play as. Per the usual, the art and fluff for the races/monsters are amazing. On top of the standard affair CR creatures they have a few MR leveled creatures for your mythic level characters to fight against. I highly recommend this book for any GM wanting to build your Pathfinder library or add to the organized chaos of your campaign.

As a side note, my favorite additions are the kaiju (yes, kaiju) and Lovecraftian creatures. This book officially adds Elder gods and kaiju as specific classes of monster. Have fun and go roll some twenties!

Lots of new creatures including some with Mythic levels 20 Nov. 2013
By Paul Fields - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
There are a lot of new creatures in this book, there are Old Ones for the Lovecraft fans out there (Cthulhu, Hastur, one other old one, the Colour out of Space, the King in Yellow), Japanese mythical creatures including 3 Kaiju (giant monsters). There are a lot of creatures over CR 20, including Demon Lords, some of these high level creatures come with Mythic levels. There are also a full range of low and mid level creatures in here.

I liked a lot of what I saw in there, the CR2, Death Dog is a 2 headed Wolf-like creature, there are lots of low level creatures I might mix into my Second Darkness campaign. When I get to a higher level in the campiagn I will be able to crash test a lot more of the higher level creatures.

Another Quality Bestiary! 18 Nov. 2013
By C.R.W. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am always amazed at how much variety you find in the Pathfinder Bestiaries. This 4th installment is great. From simple creatures to Cthulhu himself, you will not be disappointed. As a game master I appreciate how much is in the book. I like to challenge my players with new and unusual critters as well as using the old standbys. I have found a lot of content I will be using in my game.
Outstanding polish and quality 26 Mar. 2015
By Chalgyr's Game Room - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Now this is what I am talking about.

I am a sucker for a good bestiary/monster manual, and the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Bestiary 4 does not disappoint. With over three hundred monsters ranging from classic fantasy, horrors and constructs, this book is perfect for those looking for that perfect creature-based angle for a campaign.

I tend to be a very visual person, and something about the Bestiary 4 just grabbed my attention right away. The pages and cover are of quality construction but the artwork here stood out when compared to even other Pathfinder materials so far. Maybe it is just because these kinds of books help me to better visualize the encounters I am trying to portray, but the art here really appealed to me.

the way the book is laid out makes a lot of sense. Basically the introduction helps to break down how the Bestiary works from a mechanical standpoint. What do statistics mean, where should you go to find a particular type of detail - basically it helps set the foundation so your time is best spent finding whatever it is you are looking for. The appendices also serve to act as a quick reference guide - handy for when your players throw you for a surprise and you want to return the favor.

What I think I love most about the Bestiary is that it is more than just a picture and a short description. You get to understand how challenging they are, often if they are related to some other species and even the creature's habitat and history. Of course these are not completely all-encompassing - if it were they would have needed a much larger book to pull this off. As it is, there is so much information that some people might feel like the information is overkill at times. I beg to differ.

I have built entire campaigns around Bestiary/Monster Manuals in the past. This is not a book that is meant to be read from cover to cover (but I do anyways). However, so many of the individual entries feel like small stories all to themselves. Out of that can come a plethora of ideas that have led to many of our group's best campaigns. This was true in games like Dungeons & Dragons, and having put that theory to the test with Pathfinder, I was able to replicate that successful experience.

Part of the reason I am probably partial to this particular Bestiary is the layer of horror theme running through it (Cthulhu is in here for crying out loud). I have always had a soft spot for horror and tales of supernatural suspense, and there are a lot of monsters in here that are perfect for setting the stage for just such a campaign.

It is hard to discuss a good Bestiary, because at the end of the day it is little more than a glorified list. What a glorious list it is, though! The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Bestiary 4 covers a considerable range of creatures and carefully explains them while also making them easy to reference or look up when you just need that something specific for a campaign. As someone who almost always leads our gaming sessions, I can appreciate how effectively this tome allows me to bring the creatures from the page to life within our campaigns.
