How many monsters is TOO MANY monsters? Frog God Games is tempted to see…

So Frog God Games who is creating the upcoming Tome of Horrors Complete has been quoted saying: “This massive Tome will contain almost 1,000 monsters retstatted and reworked for both game systems, all in one place.” You didn’t read that wrong, they said 1,000 monsters for the Pathfinder Role playing Game.  Now 200 monsters is a LOT of monsters and 1,000 monsters, to me, is WAY too many.  I mean come on!  How many of those monsters are you really going to wind up killing?  100 most likely? Maybe 300 dead monsters if you are very lucky. But 1,000 monsters?  That is a whole lot of killing.  The level of that much killing might need some professional help after you are done.   That is a HIGH rate of death you are looking at.  Better yet, how many of these monster will wind up killing your PCs?  Now That’s the better question to be asked.  I guess we will have to wait and see.  Talk to you later…
