This weekend I will be wrapping up the first campaign that Iíve ever completed. EVER. Iíve learned a lot from the process and am quite thrilled at the idea of finishing a campaign on purpose with a fairly tidy ending (I hope). I feel that this was one of the most interactive and fun to GM campaigns that Iíve ever run.

Pathfinder Bestiary Review
Well, Here it is February and itís time for another review. This time is the Pathfinder Bestiary up for review. This book is largely a remake of the D&D 3.5 monster manual that has been brought up to date with the newer stats and abilities that are found within the Pathfinder system.
