CREATURES OF FOLKLORE EXPOSED IN MYSTERY MONSTERS REVISTED

New Campaign Setting Sourcebook for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Unravels the Myths Behind Legendary Creatures

REDMOND, WA (December 20, 2012): Paizo Publishing® LLC, leading publisher of award-winning fantasy roleplaying games and novels, announces the release of Mystery Monsters Revisited (MSRP $19.99), a Campaign Setting book for the best-selling Pathfinder® Roleplaying Game.

Fantastic creatures such as the blood-sucking chupacabra, the larger-than-life sasquatch and the mountain-dwelling yeti inspired legendary folklore. Discover how they fit into the Pathfinder campaign setting alongside infamous favorites, such as the equine Sandpoint Devil and disaster-heralding mothman. Each mystery monster includes examples of its misdeeds, evidence the fiend leaves in its wake, and a sample stat bock of an especially nefarious version of the beast.

“This book expands on Pathfinder’s inspirational touchstones, beyond the mythical gods and dragons,” says Erik Mona, Publisher. “The cryptozoology of Mystery Monsters Revisited unravels the myths and legends behind the real-life monsters and shows how to fit them into any Pathfinder RPG campaign.”
