Mythic Monsters 46: Japan

Monsters of the Rising Sun!

Mythic Monsters: Japan brings you an incredible assortment of monstrous and magnificent creatures from the Land of the Rising Sun, the fabulous and fertile fantasy realms of legendary Japan. These incredible creatures range from CR 3 to CR 30, from the the charming tanuki and the pugnacious kappa to the terrifying bakekujira, trailing oceans of death in their wake. You'll find menaces that are as beautiful as they are deadly in the long-haired harionago and the pale snow maiden yuki-onna. Some creatures of Japanese legend are purely helpful, like the friendly pipefox and the noble kirin, while others are avatars of purest death like the towering skeletal gashadokuro and the sinister scythes of the shinigami. Some of the mythological menaces of Japan appear harmless at first glance like the saw-toothed lily pads of the kawa akago, while others are shapeshifters who hide their cruel intentions behind a dissembling guise before unleashing their treachery, like the ogre mage and the spider-woman jorogumo. As if a dozen mythic monsters were not enough, we also bring you the apocalyptic fury of the many-headed Yamata no-Orochi, a colossal water dragon with a temptestuous fury and a parching addiction to the finest sake. In addition, we bring you an assortment of marvelous magic items that perfectly preserve the fantastic flavors of Japan, including the crane kimono, oni mask, princess peony, rokurokubi whip, and tombo fan!

The Mythic Monsters series from Legendary Games brings you dynamic and exciting mechanics alongside evocative and cinematic new abilities that really help creatures live up to their flavor text, whether they are creatures of real-world myth and legend or creatures born out of the RPG tradition itself. These creatures can work just as well in a non-mythic campaign as they do in one that incorporates the full mythic rules, as you can throw them at your jaded players who think they’ve seen it all or know the standard monster stats as well as you do. That look of surprise and “What was THAT?” will warm any GM’s heart.

This all-new 32-page supplement by Mike Welham, Loren Sieg, and Jason Nelson is a terrific complement to the Mythic Monster Manual, with over 220 mythic monsters and an awesome array of monster-focused abilities, feats, and more for your Pathfinder game!
