La Espada en la Tinta
Todos sabemos que nos encanta encontrarnos con un buen desafío, empezar a juntar dados de diversas formas y colores y planificarnos mentalmente la mejor manera de darle un escarmiento a ese bicho que se ha atrevido a atacarnos, pero eso sí, con estilo. Nada de «ataco» y punto. Todos sabemos que lo que más nos gusta a los jugadores es demostrar lo que somos capaces de hacer y para esto, señoras y señores, es evidente que necesitamos unos monstruos a nuestra altura. Por eso y para eso nace el Best...more
This book is a must have if you don't have the tablet/phone app the build a campaign.

Lovely pictures and easy to read and understand stat blocks.

That being said, I was disappointed that there weren't a few more baddies in there for the price (felt like they were like "well wizards of the coast prints tons of books we can too!") Several baddies that elude me that I figured were standard fantasy fare were missing, but are included in later editions... so that didn't help my we're gouging money fee...more

To create the perfect monster book without creating a book of unwieldy size is impossible, but Pathfinder comes close in this, its first volume of monsters. There really isn't much to say about this one. The production standards are sky-high, and Paizo does a masterful job of covering the majority of must-have monsters in any starting game book. It adds a few standards I personally would rather have seen omitted, but that's just me. The bottom line is that this book is all killer, no filler, and...more

I highly recommend grabbing the associated bestiary box if you use the monsters from this book regularly. The pawns are great to use with or without actual miniature figurines. Once again, great illustrations, easy to read information, and helpful guides for creating monsters and adding templates to existing creatures to create even nastier beasties makes this a wonderful book for a gm.

This book is a must-have for any Storyteller planning to run a homebrew game (or significantly modify a published Adventure Path). Full of clean, useful illustrations and tips on monster tactics, it's a worthwhile investment.
It is not much needed if you own the previous AD&D monster manuals, but it is well written, adds some twists to several monsters, specially the old classics, and updates them to Pathfinder. Good enough.
Revised stat blocks = good. I didn't care too much for most of the art, but others in my gaming group liked it. It comes down to personal taste, as always.

The original "monster book" for the Pathfinder RPG - an indispensible guide for the game. Most of the classics are in there, and well-treated!
Gorgeous layout, artwork, and rules clarity.
One of the best monster books of any RPG.
