I am unsure if this is a bug or working as intended, but some monsters can't be dragged onto the tabletop and lacks proper sheets, see this thread; Link

Dawnwalker said: So, merrily, to save myself a ton of time, I bought the PF2 Bestiary. It seems, however, that some monsters (And I have been unable to figure out a pattern) lacks a proper NPC sheet. Sure, they do have the stats written down, but you can't click them to make rolls and can't drag them onto the map to get a token. Additionally, searching for their names in the Compendium doesn't bring up any results. Is this laziness, me making a mistake or an example of "Whoops, we published before we were finished"? If it is just how it is supposed to be, then I am grasping for a reason why I paid for this and didn't just keep using my PDF. Honestly kind of considering a refund here, cos this is just bordering on having no value :/ Search should be working shortly, could you give me a screenshot please of what you mean by "some monsters lack a proper NPC sheet"?

The Giant Flytrap, working as it should, opens the sheet and drops a token, like this: <a href="https://i.imgur.com/mLecRQZ.png" rel="nofollow">https://i.imgur.com/mLecRQZ.png</a> The Kraken, not working as I think it should, drops a blank token and it sheets looks like this: <a href="https://i.imgur.com/uOHaXzQ.png" rel="nofollow">https://i.imgur.com/uOHaXzQ.png</a> I don't know HOW many monsters it affects, but more than one at least, I dragged some randomly. Edit: Something else that I don't really mind and am not sure if it is intended, but I had already made a NPC sheet for my Phoenix and given it a token, which was linked. When I then dragged the "Official" token onto the tabletop, it used the token I had assigned to my self-made NPC sheet rather than the portrait token. Again, I don't mind, but if it will cause some problems, you may want to know.

Thank you for the screenshots, that's very helpful! Investigating now. Let me know if the search is still having issues for you as well please! :)

Dawnwalker - Please delete the nonfunctional/tokenless versions of characters If you have any sheets with the same creature names, please change them (to something like Phoenix 1, for example) Then try dragging out again
Why should I be expected to pay for a product that isn't complete and lacks one of the major elements needed for use? Specifically the spell casting abilities of the monsters?

Hi Xathos - All monsters come with a list of their spells, just as you would expect in the print version of the book. Clickable spells, which are a unique functionality, will be provided in a later update. Happy Gaming!

Bar 3 AC vs bar 2 AC is slightly bothersome. Any reason it's set there? I changed it in game settings, but now it puts it in both.

One thing I've noticed is that some monsters which should have a creature level of -1 are just listed as 1. Such as the Kobold Warrior:&nbsp; Screenshot

It seems the " Monster List " link doesn't work.&nbsp; &nbsp;The link it sends to is :&nbsp; <a href="https://app.roll20.net/compendium/pf2/Miscellaneous:Monster%20List?order=4137#content" rel="nofollow">https://app.roll20.net/compendium/pf2/Miscellaneous:Monster%20List?order=4137#content</a> Result is a big Page Not Found

Andrew - Great catch, those pesky negatives seem to have gotten lost! I've updated all Level -1 creatures: Animated Broom, Bloodseeker, Eagle, Flash Beetle, Giant Centipede, Giant Rat Goblin Warrior, Guard Dog, Kobold Warrior, Mitflit, Skeleton Guard, Sprite, Viper, and Zombie Shambler to accurately reflect their level. Thank you for the report! Gardan - Thank you for your report! Updated the link to this page in the index. The page you're looking for is found here .

Please add inline rolls to all abilities. It's kinda annoying to click ability and then roll a dice manually. For example: When the efreeti grabs a creature, that creature takes 2d6 fire damage, and takes 2d6 fire damage at the end of each of its turns as long as it remains grabbed.&nbsp; Should be: When the efreeti grabs a creature, that creature takes [[2d6]] fire damage, and takes [[2d6]] fire damage at the end of each of its turns as long as it remains grabbed.&nbsp;

Every charactersheet has "Buidling", displays no stats and that is your misspelling.

There's a bug when dragging and dropping monsters from the compendium while the "Use window popouts for characters" setting is activated. The popup comes up, character sheets gets stuck on 'building' and the token does not load correctly. This can be reproduced on any monster. Was fixed by deleting the char sheet and tokens off , taking the setting off and loading them back in.

The Gelugon appears to have an ability that belongs to the Faceless Stalker. The name on the sheet is correctly "Attack of Opportunity", but the description is that of "Revert Form" from the Faceless Stalker. The Faceless Stalker, in turn, lacks Revert Form.

This is very likely what was causing all of mine to fail, however, I already refunded it.&nbsp; I may buy it again in a couple of months.

I cannot acces any monster sheet anymore as I get the BUILDING NPC&nbsp; message and it never goes away. I am using the pathfinder second edidtion roll20 character sheet. It was working fine for the first game and it started with the homunculus monster. That day all the other monster were working properly. Today every monster have the same bug unless they were already in my journal. I tried to copy the game but the problem still persist. Making a whole new game seem to fix the bug. I feel there is some kind of corruption in the backend that is preventing the compendium to reach the database. I did install script lately. PowerCard, TokenMod, Initiative. I removed them for testing purposes but nothing changed. Here is some screen shots of different monster:&nbsp; Here is an error I get when I try to load a monster :&nbsp; Turns out this was fixed by removing the&nbsp; "Use window popouts for characters" option&nbsp; &nbsp;is there anyone looking into this and a reason why this happens?

Dragging out a bestiary token seems to no longer populate its bars.

Bast L. said: Dragging out a bestiary token seems to no longer populate its bars. This does not appear to be consistent - Some monsters (Such as the Gnoll Hunter and Skeletal Champion) does get a HP Bar, but others (Like a Hyena or a Jaguar) does not. My *guess* is that it has something to do with how the Default is set up? Under Default in my game settings, under the sheet, it says it will set the bar to Hit_Points_Max, but no such stat exists (On NPCs at least).

Aye, after reading your post, I set defaults for bar 1 to be hit_points, and for bar 2 to be armor_class, and now it seems to work. Thanks.

So not big deal, but I think it would be cool if Paizo could give roll20 the pictures for bestiary creatures not pictured in bestiary from new art produced for bestiary pawn box. &nbsp;(like aasimar uses duskwalker's picture, but they apparently have new art in pawn box pawns) Probably too much shenanigans to do that since bestiary and pawn box ARE technically different products, but I said about this at Paizo and respond was that they give materials roll20 asked for and when I months(or year, I remember it was about war for the crown?) earlier asked something similar at roll20 about pictures for AP characters who got art in pawns but not AP itself, the roll20 team replied they used art paizo gave them :'D So figured out that even if it doesn't work out(due to whatever shenanigans involved), might as well suggest it again since it'd be cool :D But yeah not big deal enjoynment wise either way.

JJL - Great question! When we convert a product from Paizo onto Roll20 we receive only the relevant book's assets. We do request some assets that Paizo delivers (such as art and content for Bestiary 1-6 creatures, art from the NPC Codex, etc.) for tokens and art handouts in the game, but to make those requests we reference the book the text directing us to, and sometimes, unfortunately, a creature still does not have art or that art does not appear in the referenced text. We're open to expanding what assets we request from Paizo and what texts we're referencing, but, currently, we only have assets for the art in the book or art with a direct reference in the book as we focus on that product. I hope that answers your question, and thank you for bringing up something for us to think about as we move forward on Paizo content!

Yay! :D Nice to hear that wasn't annoying question or something, I always feel bit anxious when I ask about stuff like this. Its still not super big deal since I can just upload the pawns pictures for appropriate AP characters, but it would be super neat if it worked out in future since assets that come with roll20 modules tend to both be in higher resolution.(and pawn pdfs have that weird border thing as they are supposed to be printed and cut out) I'm not gonna be too disappointed if it doesn't work out since pawn accessories come out after all six AP parts are already out... It'd probably be easier for bestiaries and older APs with pawns already out.
