Playing a steam game without updating
Alchemical Blood is a logical thing to introduce in the game as well.[3 new templates, 2 new simple templates for minions, 2 new feats, 1 new piece of equipment, 2 new magic items] An appendix introduces the concept of "Simple Class Templates".[1 new Druid archetype, 1 new Oracle curse, 3 new feats, 3 new spells] 13. The focus here is on the degenerations and mutations that plague the race. This entry would be particularly useful to players since Half-Orc is a Core race. I still find the race rather bland and forgettable after reading this entry--one of the book's only failures in that department.The artwork is a bit tame considering how much fun the artist could have had. [4 new feats, 2 new pieces of equipment, 6 new magic items] 15. They seem like a lot of fun, and I'll have to make time to play one. [3 new variants, 3 new spells, 2 new magic items] 19. The Troll Fury archetype (for druids) presents an interesting take on trolls.I'm not a particularly big "monster guy", but I found this book quite interesting and readable, and enjoyed finishing an entry every night before bed, often drifting off to sleep with fun (and nefarious) new ideas.Each entry is twelve pages long and includes a half-page picture and a half-page of in-universe flavour text, followed by a really well-written page of description and background that goes far beyond what's available in a Bestiary.The new monster, a CR 2 Sewer Troll, is a great way to help low-level PCs get acquainted with the regeneration monster ability before they fight the real thing.
Just as no single class description can define every fighter, rogue, or wizard, no single creature entry can truly cover every vicious champion, unholy priest, or savage sorcerer in a band of organized and intelligent monsters. This volume presents a trove of entries for 20 classic monster races, giving you new ways to use your favorite monsters in a variety of encounters and challenge levels. This imaginative tabletop game builds upon more than 15 years of system development and an Open Playtest featuring more than 50,000 gamers to create a cutting-edge RPG experience that brings the all-time best-selling set of fantasy rules into a new era.Hardcover: Ships from our warehouse in 1 to 7 business days.

PZO1130 Monster Codex is a fantastic 256-page hardcover collection of new rules, variants, and background on twenty classic monstrous races for Pathfinder.PDF: Will be added to your My Downloads Page immediately upon purchase of PDF. Are there errors or omissions in this product information? The full-colour artwork inside is excellent and the book is laid out quite well.I also like the new creature, a Steam Hog--a huge, tusked boar; a mounted Fire Giant cavalier would be terrifying! [1 new sorcerer bloodline, 5 new feats, 2 new spells] 8. [1 new Witch archetype, 1 new Barbarian archetype, 5 new feats (4 of them Teamwork, which makes perfect sense for hyena-like Gnolls), 1 new weapon, and 3 new magic items] 9. [1 new Alchemist archetype, 1 new Oracle curse, 1 new Witch hex, 1 new piece of equipment, and 2 new spells] 10. Perfect for anyone planning to run the Ironfang Invasion adventure path.
