Pathfinder: Book of the Damned
If it's not a problem, I have a question for people who collect Pathfinder books.

Last year, Paizo released (as part of their general Pathfinder RPG line) a supplement named Book of the Damned - which is supposed to be about the fiendish races of the game. Sounds good! I'd buy that... the problem is, I have already both three sourcebooks from the Pathfinder Campaign Setting line that go under the same name.

I'm thinking of the Princes of Darkness / Lords of Chaos / Horsemen of the Apocalypse trilogy. The collective title of these books is Book of the Damned, too... So, my question is: is the new Book of the Damned the same material, just presented as one hardcover book? Or is it something different, some new content?

Unfortunately, I can't find any preview of the book's content online... Any help?

It is the same material for the most part, but it is updated slightly.  For example, in Princes of Darkness there is no info for the various archdevils regarding the cults/boons, like those that are in Lords of Chaos & Horsemen.  The new book also adds domains/subdomains and favored weapons for the fiend overlords.  But I would say 85-90% seems to be the same.  The information on the realms in particular is copied word for word.

Thanks!

Is there any info added regarding other fiend races, like divs or kytons? Are there any new monsters included?

I withdraw my previous statement about the subdomains and favored weapons being new.  I forgot about the tables in the three original books. *facepalm*

There are a few new monsters included, and a few new things about some other fiend races (asura, kyton, rakshasa, oni).  Not a lot of info, but some.

Hmmmm... Could you count how many new monsters are there? And how many pages are there regarding other fiendish races?

I'm really torn whether to buy this or not...
