All week long, I am showing off monsters that I created using the Pathfinder Unchained monster creation rules and playtested during PaizoCon. Earlier this week, we showed off the armored veth’thar, jurassic tiger, and the degenerate hag. Today we are looking at the spidersaurus. This is the dinosaur-version of a spider. Its enormous size makes it a formidable for in its own right. Add to that the bleed damage it can inflict and you have a downright terrifying monster.
We hope you are enjoying these monsters.

Today, we have the jurassic tiger. This monster is more of a striker. Its bite can rip your body apart while its claws can savage an opponent’s defenses. Incase you are not sure, the DC for the body rip and the defense breaker are listed at the start of attack options. It is the same for both.

Then I got Pathfinder® Roleplaying Game: Pathfinder Unchained™. If you are a GM that makes your own monsters, GET THIS BOOK! I cannot stress enough how much this book really saved my game. By the time I finished making up monsters for playtest mountain, I was able to make up monsters in 20 minutes. The best part is that I don’t feel like these monsters are any less worthy at the game table than monsters made the traditional way. They were just as good and no one at the table knew which were made with which method.
So let me share with you some monsters that came out of those mad monster creation days.
