Mystical: Kingdom of Monsters Anniversary Edition

Selected Option:

(This product is for Pathfinder).

A world of great heroes and villainous thieves...

A world of mad kings and young adventurers...

A world of monsters.

In Mystical: Kingdom of Monsters, you can play as a monster trainer or one of 6 archetypes for that class. Utilizing your unique talents, you and your party will travel through a realm known only as The Kingdom in search of monsters to capture and raise. Along the way, you'll find over 154 monsters; some new and some Pathfinder favorites.

By capturing monsters, you gain access to new spells that you can use to either battle other trainers in the arenas that exist throughout the Kingdom or combat evils in your own or another campaign world. As you master the spells those monsters grant you, you can capture even stronger monsters and learn different spells on your journey to become one of the greatest trainers there is.

In addition, there are several new feats for the dedicated monster trainer as well as those that will help you to incorporate a little bit of monster training into other classes such as the druid, the summoner, or even the wizard. Any class that gains a companion in some form or another can learn something from monster training.

New spells and magic items accompany would-be trainers on their quests, descriptions of the regions in and around the Kingdom (including where to capture certain monsters) can be found as well!

Happy Anniversary!

As of 2019, Mystical: Kingdom of Monsters is 5 years' old. Along with becoming an official part of Samurai Sheepdog, we have also learned a lot in that time, both in layout and design. Now, we bring all of that to you. In the anniversary edition, you'll find:

  • Clearer rules on what it takes to capture, call, and recall monsters as a trainer.
  • New trainer perks.
  • New capstone options (master perks).
  • Cleaner phrasing with archetypes so they play as intended.
  • 3 never-before seen monsters.
  • Cleaner monster layout
  • Background information for every monster.
  • Actual Size charts for every monster when compared to a 6-ft. (2m) tall man.
  • Better organization of feats, with cleaned up phrasing so they play as intended.
  • 22 pages of background on the Kingdom and its surrounding areas, including where and how to find monsters, rival trainers, and arena masters.
  • Equivalent Monster Spell Charts for the Pathfinder Bestiaries 1 through 6.
  • Print version now available.

Can you please make a regular print version of this available? I get that this is a flagship product for you, and you want it seen at its best. But, to be honest, I haven't really seen much of a difference, if any, between the premium print books I have, and their regular printing quality nowadays. The regular printing is already using the better paper & at 200 pages, I don't think the binding will make much of a difference.
I much prefer a print version over a PDF, but $50 is a little pricey for a 200 page book. No offense meant.

I find it an absolute shame none of the extra mentioned content in this book came out aside from the two WIP books you produced before the anniversary edition of the main book. (The Eastrek and Haunted Eve books.) I saw two mentions of a book Player's Advantage: Monster Trainer that promised additional content. The Trainer class could really have used more feats to support itself beyond the ones in this book. Plus a mention of an evolution for hippogryphs and the rocktusk mammoth, would have been nice to get the full details. I would also have like to have seen the promised updates for the Eastrek and Haunted Eve books.

First, thank you so much for following along with our content releases for this and our previous work with Northwinter Press. :) You and everybody here are much appreciated!

We are actually still working on these, we've just been swamped with other projects, and as I'm actually only one person building the content while also holding down an 8-5, it's not as fast as some others. It will happen, that much I can promise. Slowly, but surely, it will.

It is on the docket, but we want to release some new content first. :) this anniversary edition was a way to mark our transition to Samurai from Northwinter Press, as well as celebrate and make it the best it possibly can be. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the new and updated stuff in the meantime :)

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
