Pathfinder: Summon Monster VIII Unchained

Book of Beasts: Legendary Foes (PFRPG)

Considering that Halloween was earlier this week, it really has been the perfect time to discuss monsters that you can bring out of nowhere to do your bidding. If this is the first in the Summon Monster Unchained series, please check out I, II, III, IV, V, VI, and VII.

An elder elemental. What about it? Well according to the list of monsters that is the only thing a good spellcaster can summon with the core Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Frankly, with all the thousands of other Pathfinder Compatible supplements released to date, I am highly surprised that this issue was not addressed years ago. This one list alone literally screams that it needs addressing a compatible publisher to come along and do something about it. You get a demon, a devil, and an elder elemental. No giant animals or dinosaurs to add a template. No other outsiders without a type or just an element. All you get is a more powerful chunk of rock, ocean wave, bonefire, or tornado. The previous spell has almost three times as many creatures on it. This one, is just sad.

Which is why we are here, to add more monsters to that list for you. Who wants a Valkyrie or an aerial servant? You want a celestial dinosaur, you gone one! A lion-headed agathion? There’s one on this list! This is a list worthy of a serious spellcaster, and one that you should use in your game.
