Now we are having fun! Of course we are to expect the basics: wolves, bats, boars, snakes, bears, tigers, elementals, golems, mummies, minotaurs, dragons. But there are so many monsters that usually get omitted from videogames. Time to open up all 4 Pathfinder Bestiaries to see what would be fun for all to fight in the drift. Let’s just go down the monster list. Yes, all 1200 of them. I’ll make this short. Giant Ants We had rats, spiders, maggots and snakes as basic swarm enemies, but rarely do we see swarms of giant ants in games. Giant ants have justifiable infinite respawning, huge numbers, can fly to create new nests, and dig huge tunnel systems. Put these guys in any game and you can explain any crazy cave tunnel as “ants did it”. Assassin Vine More of a trap than a monster, the camouflaged killer vine is great simple adversary plant to keep the players ever vigilant in the darker depths of the forest. And having these things attack any other noneplant monster in their attack range will make for a good show. Bulette (AKA Landshark) Big, armored, stupid, burrows though the ground and leaps at its prey. What’s not love? Giant Centipede Ew. Just ew. Giant Crab We had turtles. Let’s try something else to kill on the beaches. I now have a craving for crab sticks, even though they are not made of crabs. Barbed Devil Unlike normal enemies, this guy has inbuilt spike retaliation for every melee attack. A good reason to play ranged classes. Giant Eagle Regular crows as not intimidating. Let’s go bigger. Mastodon If we can kill “endangered” animals, we can kill giant evil elephants. Gargoyle A classic that went out of favor. An enemy for ruins and ruble. Give him the ability to take shape of regular big rocks and the player will never let his/her guard down. Gnoll Because green orcs in the desert is just plain silly. Gorgon An armored dire bull. If being a regular torero is not fun, try stampedes. Hellhound A doberman pinscher with fire for fur. Who gathers wood for campfires when you have one of these. Hobgoblin Everyone always forgets about the militaristic and smart hobgoblins. These guys actually practice military tactics and strategies instead of running head first into battle like a dumb orc. Manticore Can’t remember anyone ever using the human face four legged variety in games. It’s always something bipadal or lionfaced. Just look at that guy – it’s a perfect killing horror. Mimic How can Unbended go without killer toilets? This paralyzing rare slow deadly beast can take the shape of any interactive item. Doors, ladders, chests, barrels, chairs. Run into this thing once and you will never feel safe next to an oddly placed crate ever again. No RPG is complete without this thing. Pseudodragon It’s a catsized dragon. These things would replace pigeons for the title of "flying rat".
