Pathfinder Bonus Bestiary for Free RPG Day

Paizo will be unleashing a 16-page manual that will give a first glimpse at the Pathfinder RPG rules and the Pathfinder Bestiary on Free RPG Day (20 June 2009). It will preview nearly every monster that will be found in the upcoming Pathfinder Bestiary such as the allips, caryatid columns, faerie dragons, huecuvas, shadow mastiffs and also provide a reimagining of the most iconic monsters in fantasy gaming over the past 30 years.

There will also be an explanation of never-seen-before rules that will be included in the Pathfinder RPG and also rules for monstrous companions, arcane creations, sinister traps, variant creatures, and other options for both 3.5 and the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

After Free RPG Day, this manual would still be available exclusively at but it might not be free anymore.

Can't wait to see this.

I heard the pdf will be free afterwards, but there may be also be a few print copies for sale after the fact.

Hey Zach,

Yeah. I wasn't too sure with the wordings, it made it sound like it was only available after Free RPG Day.

Still excited to see it though. I loved Classic Monsters Revisited.

Zachary Houghton said...

Yeah, that's what I meant, that it would be available afterwards. My bad. :)

And I agree--Classic Monsters Revisited was a tremendous book.

Questing GM said...

Looks like we both got confused.

Just checked the forums, Vic said that the pdf will be free during and after Free RPG Day. While the printed copies will be free in participating retails on the day but limited copies will be sold after that.

Thanks for the clarification! Either way, this is the freebie I’d really like to pick up this year.
