About this app

Just to be transparent about the future of this app; Monster Lair will not be maintained beyond the current state and content (meaning everything until Bestiary 3). This started as a hobby project and because there were no really good encounter builders available, but my priorities have shifted and there are great alternatives out there. Thank you for using my app and have fun playing Pathfinder! :)

Cheers, Rob

Monster Lair helps you to create and export your encounters for Pathfinder Second Edition by Paizo.

Core features:
- Create your own encounters and let the app calculate XP values and encounter difficulty for you. This encounter calculator also allows the Proficiency without Level variant rules.
- Random encounter generation (completely random or according to template)
- Random treasure generation for a party level
- Add custom monsters to encounters
- Browse lists of monsters, hazards and treasure from all sources with a bunch of filters for traits, rarity, etc. Everything links to the corresponding Archive of Nethys entry.
- Print your saved encounters or save them as PDF so you have them handy at the table.

Does what I need! Very helpful on the fly for making quick encounters. The names on encounters seem to reset every time you open a link or add/remove creatures, so you need to give your encounter a name at the end rather than at the start of building. Only thing I really would like to see is a feature to toggle or filter monsters above the exp budget, or within a range.

Hey Danie, glad to hear you like the app! That the encounter name resets every time sounds like a bug, I'll look into it for the next update. Regarding the xp filter, if you pull up the sheet in the encounter creator, you should have the option to do that. Maybe I should make that more clear. Hope it helps! Cheers, Rob

Super useful app! The only things I could suggest to make it better would be including weak/elite adjustments and adding filters to make searching through monsters easier. Not sure how to reply to comment: Being able to search by traits or families would be a lifesaver. That way, when I want to put together a mages tower, I can just set a filter for constructs and elementals for instance and select from that list to make it easier.

Hey, thanks for the feedback. I'll see what I can do regarding the Elite / Weak adjustment. What kind of additional filters would you like to see? 😁

Great for building the encounter. But as a reference tool for a GM at the table, It's has the same issues as using the book for looking at stat blocks. You have to keep switching between different windows to look at different stat blocks. Since you can click on the monster in an encounter and see a discription I was expecting that to also work for the stat block as a whole so I could use the app for combat.
