Is this required for the campaign that comes with the main box or is this additional content for player created content only.

Also, are there standees included for the new creature types in the bestiary 2?

No its not necesary for the campaign coming with the game. It will however be used for future campaigns and content released later. Also it can be used to create additional content by players.
Theres no standdees for it, but it was hinted they might come.

So they released another 60 or so standees in one of the stretch goals, which is a darn fine stretch goal I would say! 40 or so of these are related to bestiary 2.

I am thinking of dropping my pledge including the minis and bestiary 2, to just get the bestiary 2 as a (15 euro) add on instead, and just play with standees.

I'm not 100% clear on the bestiary though - if I didn't get bestiary 2 would I therefore not be able to use the standees that were unlocked in the stretch goal, so I'd end up with a pile of unusable standees? More investigations required methinks - only 10 hours to go of the campaign.

Edit - also Julia, you said above that bestiary 2 will be "used for future campaigns and content released later". I assume with the release of the standees during the KS campaign, the standees will obviously be used, but would you have to switch between two books if you had monsters from both bestiaries? And do no campaigns already exist which utilise monsters from bestiary 2 and it'll be future or fan made content which will use them? I'm not even clear how it is chosen which of the 400 or so monsters appear in which scenarios!

From the update 48 :

Quote:
At least 60 new standees will be added (if the final layout allows me to increase that number I certainly will). 20 of them belong to creatures in Bestiary 1, and the other 40 to Bestiary 2, although, as you will see, they will also be able to represent some profiles in the first book.
