Where the Wild Things Are!

That would be RIGHT HERE, with the release of Mythic Monsters 28: Animals,  available now in wide release from the Legendary Games webstore as well as at the Open Gaming Store, Paizoand DrivethruRPG

Sure, Pathfinder is a fantasy game, and you can have your hundred-foot-tall zombie titans and your fire-breathing death-dragon-demons and poison-eyed horribulous cosmic abominations, but for the world to feel real, familiar enough to touch, you need a little touch of the ordinary and everyday. We are still human beings from Earth when we play this game, and animals in the game ground our sense of reality, our notions of environment and nature, and besides animals are just plain cool! If you’ve never been hypnotized by a high-definition nature documentary, you may have never realized how profoundly weird and cool and awesome the seemingly familiar animals of this world can be. The things that real animals can do will amaze you, and if you dial up the mythic for these creatures you can bring their real-world habits and abilities to life in a way that goes way beyond claw/claw/bite!


Like Mythic Monsters: Mounts and Mythic Monsters: Bugs, there are far too many creatures of each type to limit ourselves to just a dozen, and for animals it’s not really about inventing new animals; it’s about giving the Legendary treatment to more of the animals you use all the time! So, without further ado, let me introduce the most jam-packed installment of the Mythic Monsters series yet, with 22 mythic stat blocks, plus the usual introductory material on how mythic animals interact with other animals of their kind and with animal training and companionship. But for now, the list!
